Learn to Paint Digitally with the Intuos Art Tablet

Artist Aaron Blaise has been working on some of Disney's most celebrated animated features as both an animator and director for almost 25 years, and much of that time has been spent at the helm of a Wacom tablet. So when we went looking for the perfect instructor to demonstrate how to create beautiful digital paintings with the Intuos Art and its included Corel Painter Essentials software, the director of Brother Bear was a no-brainer.

Whether you're a beginner to digital art or art in general, Aaron's five-step tutorial will show you how to create a work of digital art from start to finish. You'll see how to start with a rough drawing, refine it, rough in color, create shadows and highlights, and complete a piece with finishing details. You won't just learning how to use software and hardware, you'll be absorbing fundamental skills from a master.
