This demo is more detailed than the last one I did. I used "animoto" again. To see the demo click on the words "Painting Demo" below the picture.
My quest is to keep brush work big and have interesting edges, both soft and crisp. Whenever I get too detailed I look at the work of Qiang Huang and Carol Marine whom I admire very much. Both have great blogs. Qiang Huang also has some youtube demos that are good and Carol Marines's ArtBytes on the Daily Paintworks website are really helpful to me. In general, just looking at artists you admire can teach you a lot.
