Painting Tutorial: The Rider by PinkParasol Painting Tutorial: The Rider by PinkParasol
A tutorial for my most recent piece, "The Rider". I hope this is easy to follow and that it will help to explain my work flow, as well as possibly be a learning tool for someone out there. I tried to document the process each evening I worked on it. Unfortunately, it ended up taking awhile to finish since I had to take some time to let it dry between layers. Hopefully, this will help someone!

Here is the final image: [link]

A special thanks to:

I love how much the character on the horse changes in the process, first it looks like an female indian, then a male indian, than a male roman soldier, then a mix between the two....kinda confused as what he's supposed to be?

This was very helpful. I love your artwork and it is refreshing to see some traditional artwork on Deviantart.

the level of detail you have is amazing. I like this finished painting and the two with the women and the fish very much.
