Alpacas am I right? So cute and adorable. They’re the angels of the llama family. Funny thing is, before moving to Colorado, I had never seen one. I didn’t even know they existed! It took working on a guest ranch for me to discover this wonderful fluffy animal.
After rummaging through pictures of my time on the ranch, looking for inspiration, I stumbled upon photos of alpacas. I couldn’t resist, I had to paint one! I made this alpaca speed painting video while creating the portrait in Photoshop, thinking it would be cool to see the whole process once I was done. It shows how I use Photoshop to create my artworks.
This alpaca painting is called “Colorful Happiness”. I wanted to capture the cuteness of the animal with bright and cheerful colors. Watch how I created it!
I love making speed paintings videos, it’s so much fun to watch how I created something once the illustration is finished. Kinda like magic! As you can see in the video, I started with a different color scheme at first. In the end, I wasn’t entirely satisfied with it so I played with the color settings in Photoshop and I ended up making the painting more colorful.
This happens a lot. I end up with something different than what I had in mind. It’s like my animal paintings have a life of their own. Digital art truly is amazing!
