Livestream - Painting Hands 2.10.16

Artist: Tim Von Rueden (vonn)

Moderator: Joe Chico

Today we will be going over painting hands digitally. We are going to paint in a more realistic manner followed by a more intuition based coloring manner. From there we will go into detailing and showing how to add lighting direction. Come join in and check out the process and ask any questions you have along the way.

:| (Blank Stare) hi
i was just on the cg page looking at stuff as it was i have a couple of questions for you.
i have blender already on my computer, but as of yet i have not done anything with it yet.
i was trying to learn how to use renderman with it,after getting sick & having a accident ,gave it up as a bad job i could never get it to work ,as i say just gave up ,im not even sure if it will work .
also i try to use photoshop a long time ago,it drove me crazy , but i use something else that i can import it to photoshop,or anything else for that matter,do you still have to use photoshop?
i use a turcom grapics tablet to do my artworks with ,any suggestions would be helpful
