Slightly more refined thumbnails, but still keeping shapes really simple so that I can try and workout composition and viewpoints - I have always drawn characters and they never had backgrounds, so finding this quite tricky at the moment.

Digital Painting Tutorial

I have been trying to achieve a more painterly feel in my work for quite some time now, but I was never able to work out how to do this with the Photoshop brushes. However, with the brushes that Jordan supplied in todays class, I really think he helped me take a step closer. I do like those apples.
