You may remember David Revoy from his short 'Little Fairy'. He has now published a series of videotutorials on character design. In no less than 9 separate tutorials (most of them around 9 minutes long), David takes you through the entire process of drawing, modeling, texturing and rendering a little Dragon.
An interesting twist in this tutorial is that David uses the UV/Image editor to draw the reference image of his character instead of preparing it in Photoshop or the Gimp. This is the first time I've seen someone use the editor like that!
While the actual explanation is a bit minimal (David only includes a list of used shortcuts for each video) and I wouldn't recommend this tutorial to absolute beginners, I do think that this is an interesting watch for many Blender users.
TnX for posting it!
The firs link it's broken

And for the rest, thanks for sharing.
Sounds Great. I will watch later today,
I saw this last week sometime, and I thought it was not too bad, thank for another great tutorial
Hey, that's pretty neat. I've been tring to play around with the image editor, but the most use i've found for it so far is in doing smaller Pixelart type texture maps. Like 64x64 or 128x128 maps where you can blow it up and edit per pixel. Really easy and with the instant updates it's a snap to texture and make sure your shading is just right. I'd never even thought about using it for this type of thing tho. Good idea.
Very nice to a fellow Blenderhead in action. Thank you for sharing the videos.
great serie of tutorial movies, thx for the head up.
I watched the tutÂ´s - well done, thanks for sharing that.
*cries* dial up.... Guess I'll have to wait until I go back into town. It looks excellent from the screenshots.
Really thanks a lot to the Blendernation team and all the post their.
I will try to develop the using of UV/Image Editor as a digital Drawing/Painting tools. Cause with texture now, it's really fun.
How can I save those videos?
Youtube videos can be downloaded using this site :
You just have to catch the adress of the video you want to download on youtube, paste it in the page link above, the video will come on your computer. You will have to rename the file to change extension ( ****.flv ) and after you will can read it with a player, as VLC player ( a free & open source video player ).
I didn't have more simple solution cause I didn't have my own server to load the videos on.
I hope it will be a good solution for you.
Happy Blending !
Thank you very much! :-)
