New Lesson 'King of the Forest' Now Available on MJS Tv

This image really stood out to me, it's been on my list of prospective lessons for quite some time!

I love the vibrant hues of the tiger contrasted against the dark green forest.  An additional interesting element and one that will challenge you is the shimmering water splashes in the foreground, the sharp detail contrasting with the out-of-focus background creates an impressive interplay of light and shadow.

It’s incredible depth of field makes the Tiger really stand out. I will show you how to soften the transition between lights and darks, as well as how to use the blender brushes to achieve a soft, out-of-focus effect in the background.

In this 17 part lesson, I guide you through various stages, from the sketching diagram and blocking in, to completing this painting with intricate details. This tutorial has so many interesting elements that will challenge you.

Regardless of your skill level, I encourage you to try this lesson. You will learn and develop your painting skills significantly.

I hope you enjoy this lesson as much as I did!
