Corel Painter X3 Tutorial
First of all, as I mentioned awhile ago, I did a Corel Painter X3 tutorial with Corel Corporation awhile ago. It’s live now on Corel’s main website.
This painting was a really fun process. It goes over the entire process of creating the painting: 1) coming up with rough concepts; 2) working with an art director (our blog group); 3) developing the concept; 4) preliminary drawing; 5) value study; 6) taking photo reference; 7) final drawing; 8) color study; 9) painting process; 10) finishing. At the end, I go into a specific area of Corel Painter X3, showing how the perspective tool works.
My favorite part of creating this painting was working with my many friends and fans here on the web. When I first posted the rough concepts for the project I worried that I would get confusing feedback, and that it would dampen the project. Instead, the comments were clear, insightful, and knowledgable. And it was fun to communicate with friends all over the world.
Here’s a link table of contents for all the entire process here on the web:

Furthering the Graphic Novel Layout
Well, after thinking about it, I’m going to show you a small screenshot of where things are, but I’m not going to let you know the details—for now. I’m going to wait and see what we should keep a surprise, and what we should show publicly.
So, in the meantime…
Alright, I have a question for y’all now.
When you’re putting together your graphic novel layouts (those of you that are into this kind of thing), how soon do you like to start making the pictures “pretty?”
