    Female Hunter + Video Tutorial

    For the past few months I have been working on a new video tutorial of a female hunter. I wanted to keep the painting fairly simple so that I could keep it in real-time without having to speed anything up or skip ahead too often.The video is approximately 128 minutes of real-time video. There are two versions available, one in 1280×800 for $10 and one in 1440×900 for $12. Both versions come bundled with the brushes I use and a psd file of my illustration. For my next tutorial I plan to make the painting much more complex, with multiple figures inside an environment. I probably won't be able to finish it for several more months though.

    As a special bonus for purchasing this tutorial, I will select a random person to receive an Intuos 3 6×8 tablet. To enter the drawing, simply purchase the Female Hunter tutorial and your name will be added to the list. If you already have an Intuos 3 or 4, please consider opting out of the drawing so that others who don’t have an Intuos 3 or 4 can have a chance to win. You can opt out by adding a comment in the “Special Instructions” window during the checkout process. The drawing will be held on March 15th. Please note, the Intuos 3 is used, but in brand new condition. The surface sheet has just been replaced and still has the protective cover on it. The tablet comes with the stylus and the installation disc, but does not come with the mouse (I think the mouse is in the Closet of Doom…don’t ask. If I ever find it, I will be sure to send it to the winner). A trailer for the video is already on my YouTube site. The tutorial will be available for purchase on Wednesday, Feb. 10th through my new online store, daarken.com/store. *Note - the online store won't launch until tomorrow, Feb. 10th.

    Speaking of which, I’ve been working on a new online store for the past week and it is almost ready to go. The store will launch at midnight tonight. You will be able to purchase prints, proofs, and my video tutorials through the online store. The store will also offer free downloadable versions of my old video tutorials that are on my YouTube site. Be sure to tell your friends!

    Yes, unfortunately there is a trade-off with volume levels. I do not own professional recording equipment, so in order to reduce background noise as much as possible I had to mess around with the settings. I spent many days testing different mics, recording in different rooms, and using several different recording programs and editing the settings to find the best solution. Using headphones to listen to the videos helps a lot. When I tested it without headphones it sounded fine on my computer, so it also depends on your own computer and speaker system. If it turns out to be too much of a problem I may have to find a way to fix it, but that will probably mean boosting the volume of each individual audio clip, which will also boost the background noise.

    Very nice tutorial. I like the way you use liquefy filter to correct proportions without repainting the form

    Great tutorial. Loads of great information in there and I'm sure everyone would learn a few things from watching it. Highly recommended.

    ONe trick I found works well for recording on mic at home.

    Get a pillow and put it in front of your face, so that when you talk into the mic, the pillow absorbs your voice instead of bouncing around and echoing back into the mic.

    The other vids were great and those were free, so I'm guessing this is even better, 10 bucks is nothing too. I'm sure you've packed it with good info.
