Evoke the Re­nais­sance in your dig­i­tal art­work with a clas­sic style, us­ing brushes and ad­just­ments

It’s in­cred­i­ble what you can cre­ate on a com­puter these days. We should know too: we spend most our days try­ing to push the bound­aries of that. But some­times, there’s noth­ing more sat­is­fy­ing than evok­ing the past.

We live in an age when ev­ery­thing around us is in­spired by some­thing that’s al­ready been, whether that’s in mu­sic, fash­ion or art. We’re con­stantly in­spired by things that have in­flu­enced us, and that’s the think­ing be­hind many clas­sic-look­ing dig­i­tal paint­ings. In this tu­to­rial, we’re go­ing to look at how to cre­ate some­thing that has that sense of depth to it in terms of age and style, as we ex­plore how to take on oil paint­ings.

From us­ing the golden ra­tio to play­ing with tex­tures, this can be a fun and ful­fill­ing project to get stuck into, and there are end­less pos­si­bil­i­ties for what you cre­ate with oil-style brushes. We’ve gone for a por­trait in this case, but why not try out the skills you learn in this tu­to­rial with a land­scape or an an­i­mal?

Let’s not look for­ward at the fu­ture of art, but in­stead hark back to times gone by, and dive straight into a clas­si­cal paint­ing project.
