Create a realistic fantasy knight

Painting of a knight wearing a suit of armour, holding a sword in a fight

In this workshop, we'll show you how to paint a knight using Photoshop, as well as painting with traditional media. 

Painting digitally of course makes it easier to make changes, fix mistakes and paint faster in order to meet those pesky deadlines. However, with a purely digital artwork you don’t have a finished painting to hold onto. So why not combine both, using Photoshop to digitally plan out your composition, values and colour, then moving onto traditional painting with acrylic and watercolours?
