In this DVD, Puddnhead shows you how to transform a pencil drawing into a digital painting using Corel Painter. He reveals every step of his process, from underpainting to the finished rendering. Puddnhead shows all of his tricks for creating a better glow by combining tools and layering, painting better edges, rendering small details, adding more life to your paintings, implementing advanced lighting, creating mood and emotion, and knowing when a painting is finished.

Description taken from Gnomon official website.

You can buy this DVD on Gnomon official website or here.

It is useful and captiviting DVD even for the artist who doesn't have good skills (like me). Puddnhead gives a lot of useful hints how to paint realistic characters in painter. He also used photoshop for color correction and hsv correction. I think with the practise and Gnomon tutorials I can achieve something. I am glad that concept artist like puddnhead are sharing their knowledge. ( not all and for money, ofcourse, but still)
