Digital Illustration Video

Russ Abbott demonstrates the techniques to make an ornamental frame illustration using Manga Studio 5 and a Wacom Cintiq pen display. The methods used in this video can be applied to digital tattoo design, tee shirt design, and print illustration. Numerous techniques are discussed from file setup, initial sketch, refining the drawing, vector lines, symmetry rulers, making clean selections, and a unique shading method. This entire illustration took Russ around 3 hours to complete but the use of time-lapse narrows the video down to 34 minutes. Digital download: MOV format. Note: This is a large file that may take a few minutes to download.
