Just uploaded to my website the first in my Photoshop Wildlife Painting Series. In this hour and thirty minute tutorial watch and learn as I take you through my process of animal painting in Photoshop. Watch as I share my reference and begin with the rough sketch of an elephant and continue through the process of creating a finished digital painting. http://creatureartteacher.com/digital-downloads/photoshop-wildlife-painting-series
