I’m adding more to my YouTube channel each week!
– 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.

Get in quick!
This is a piece I did for a class….winter landscapes are not the easiest thing to conjure when its mid summer here in Aus & im more the sun god worshiping type of girl! Winter is a time of hardship for many animals trying to find a meal…so threw in a couple of gorgeous predators tracking the same scent. I painted this completely by hand in Painter 2017……I love the organic feel of this software, it gives me a traditional feel to my work that ive transferred over from my fine art days. I will be adding some more giveaways soon & start work on a book im illustrating, so will have some fun WIPS to show you as i progress. Happy New Year to everyone, have fun & stay safe…..No drinking & driving!

Capturing the moment when Athena cursed Medusa, turning her from beauty to beast! Most of the brushes i used are from my palette give away, using Painter 2017. I tried a few sketches until i was happy with pose, then got stuck into painting her. Getting all my colours, values right i then moved onto the fun part, lighting & textures…. one of the new brush categories in Painter 2017 are texture brushes, they are brilliant….with plenty of scope to manipulate textures to wrap your subject not just lay on top. I decided on a shadowy scene, hiding in a grungy building as the rays of light fall on her scaley skin….. once completed i used a couple of particles to add the magic! Enjoy, she is available for purchase & will be entered in a couple of art competitions. For more details, or questions….im always happy to talk art, you can contact me through email, mobile, Facebook or Instagram. ❤️ 🦁🎨
Fantasy portrait – Cry Wolf
I’ve finished my little wolf girl, really had fun painting her. This is the first portrait that I’ve done purely from my imagination……let my mind just take me where it wanted without restrictions. This was personal, stemming from my Dads stories of the boy who cried wolf, &my love for predators esp those being hunted &poached to extinction. She is the moon goddess, protecting the creatures of the night, the wolf is both her soulmate & protector. I love using Corel Painter, its an amazing program….feels so organic & easy to customise to suit your style. Painter 2017, has some awesome new brushes great for both traditional & pure digital artists alike……..if you haven’t tried it, jump on to their site & get a trial…..i know you will love it! I used the mirror tool a lot in this, another first for me…will def use it more. I will be entering my wolfie girl in an upcoming exhibition, but im open to offers or inquiries on purchasing her. I hope she captures your heart, enjoy viewing her but please do not copy or reproduce her without my consent, sharing in social media is fine …..just make sure shes credited with a link to me……thanks muchly 😊❤ ©LionArt-Michelle Webb
My current painting, learning much from this after about 5 redraws of both girl & wolf….finally happy & moving forward. I have a lot to do before finishing but will keep posting wip updates. Feel free to look, ask questions but please dont download or use in any way. This is my original work & has a copyright. One more thing, the lion painting I sent to National Zoo has sold very quickly…im very happy & donating 50% to the conservation project! -Love Lion Art
