– Hey guys, I’m working hard to provide videos of my process painting in both Painter 2018 & Procreate & to begin some tutorials shortly also, esp little tips for Painter. I’m aiming to start a Patreon page in the next month, as I really love sharing my art & what I’ve learnt with you all but in order to do so, I really need some sponsorship… it takes quite a bit of time preparing & editing videos, & I want this this to also be beneficial to you guys. On Patreon I will be giving my sponsors some special rewards & thank you gifts- custom brushes, artwork & other goodies I’m working on. Please follow my blog, subscribe to my YouTube channel & watch out for news on launch of Patreon….. thanks, love you all & thank you for your continued support! ❤️ Video page via menu above, has link to YouTube channel for your convenience.https://lionartmichellewebb.files.wordpress.com/2017/09/1080p.mov

Mother Of Dragons
Who doesn’t love Game Of Thrones? I’m a huge fan & Dany is one of my favourites. I painted this with Corel Painter 2018, using a variety of custom & new Thick Paint brushes, combined with different papers on random grain rotation. The new technology in 2018 has really uped the anti in digital painting, with Real Media & Thick Paint emulating traditional mediums so well its impossible to distinguish between the two. I find the ability to create my artwork digitally fascinating & have met so many amazing artists that feel the same.
Digital art is a very broad term for many genres of this new medium, & I feel the need for some defining categories. From graphic design, animation, & character design to fine art, illustration & 3D, all falling under the term Digital Art, it’s understandable that people in general haven’t a hope of understanding the difference. There’s also photo manipulations- sometimes called photo bashing (esp in concept art world) & many photographers now offer photo painted portraits to clients…..but what does that mean!
Well, here’s what my digital art consists of- the rest I may tackle explaining at a later date.
I have a very cool computer, with a high end graphics card (vital for this work), combined with a Wacom Cintiq drawing tablet (like a giant iPad touch screen) that is sensitive to pressure. This is my canvas, with a couple of different pen stylus that have tilt, rotation & pressure settings that calibrate to the way I make a line or brush stroke as my brush/pencil/chalk/pastel. The programs I use are Corel Painter & sometimes PhotoShop, which have a multitude of different brushes which emulate natural media. The rest is pretty much the same as drawing in a sketch book, or painting on a canvas! Every line, & mark in my artwork is made by my hand…. the computer doesn’t paint it, I do. I don’t trace over photos or clone photos- it’s possible to do so in the programs I use, & many people do exactly that…..but that’s not how I create my art. I hope this helps you to understand, how personal & how much of my self goes into my paintings……I truly love my job.
‘I will be adding some video of this piece in various stages, so watch this space!

Happy painting – Michelle
Just finished this & is available for purchase, painted completely by hand in Corel Painter 2017 on my Wacom Cintiq. This took me about 2 weeks to paint, many hours re assessing & fixing issues. I’m really happy with the finished piece. If your interested in purchasing her, contact me directly & there will only ever be the 1 produced, this is the original. There’s gold foil through her hair which doesn’t show well in jpg, view on large screen to appreciate the textures through. ©LionArtStudio
Suminagashi- Digi Style!
This piece is the result of warming up today after time off work. Laying down colour & playing with brushes in Corel Painter 2017. The brushes are ones made by a couple of artists to use when wanting to create Suminagashi style pieces, abstract & can also be used in other styles of painting when wanting expressive brush strokes & a little freeness to your work. When this started to appear it really gave me the feeling of Aboriginal art, which is both graphic & organic & always has a story to tell. I saw some lizard shapes emerging & decided to embellish on that & added several geckos & made the background appear tree like. It never fails to amaze me how Painter emulates traditional mediums so well, its what really sets it apart from other art software. This was only painted by my hand, I used brushes & colour….In the same manner I do when painting traditionally. If you haven’t tried Painter there’s an option for 30 day trial, I promise you will find the experience to be truly awesome, & for professionals like myself a most valuable tool for your business.
