Ryan Laukat, president of Red Raven Games and illustrator, hosted a panel about digital art. He went through his own process of creating a digital painting using Photoshop. We got to watch him break it down step by step, and he also included some really helpful tips. It was also really cool to watch him paint for an hour. He told us what equipment he used, like a tablet for drawing, and what software he was using. He included multiple ways to accomplish the same results with different equipment and software. As someone who has never created digital art, it was nice to have someone who had the experience show me how to create a digital painting. I love these types of panels: entertaining and educational. I hope to keep seeing more of this at next year’s SaltCon!
