@15:26Haha, no, I use a Wacom tablet, and would recommend anyone getting in to digital art to get one. Their Bamboo line is pretty inexpensive if you're just starting to mess around with it. :)

@07:23Yeah, the more complex the form is the trickier it becomes. The best thing to do is do lots of studies from reference and learn the planes of the face until you could draw it like an architect in any position, when you have that understanding lighting and shading will be much easier.

You have to be given deviantFilm privileges to be able to submit videos to dA. They don't want dA turning in to youtube, so they're more strict with their submission process. In order to get privileges, you have to be invited by an administrator or someone who already has them. You can request an invitation, as I did, by showing an example of your videos. I got my privileges from `FallenRox. :3

Okay, so. I got deviantfilm privileges the other day (thanks Fallenrox! :D) and wanted to give it a test.

So, I made a quick, crappy video tutorial about basic blending. It's not very well-thought out or exciting, it's really just a test of deviantfilm to see how everything works out. I'll upload much better-planned tutorials in the future, but for now I hope you enjoy this one.

Feel free to suggest something for my next tutorial, or crit, or comment, or whatever. :)

(Also, please excuse the awful the video and audio sync; for some reason Camtasia won't record through my camera, so I had to record the video with Camtasia, the audio with Wavepad, and put them together. The result is somewhat mish-mashed.)

Edit:

Oh mai GAWD! Daily Deviation! Bwuargh!!!! Thanks so much, guys, it's wonderful to see this tutorial really lifting off like this. I'll be sure to make more, very soon!

Daily Deviation

Given 2008-11-01
Basic Blending Tutorial by ~Andantonius ...video takes you into a tutorial that shows you how he comes up with his amazing digital works. This video not only teaches you how to blend with digital painting but also how to add light effects the right way. It is absolutely awesome to have video tutorials like this to help further the learning and growth of the artistic talent in the dA community! ( Suggested by witchiamwill and Featured by FallenRox )

Unfortunately, my worst fears have been realized: I can't be lazy and blend colors with the smudge brush. :iconfrageplz:
