Part 5: Adding Finishing Details

By Aaron Blaise

In this tutorial, artist Aaron Blaise adds the finishing details to a digital painting of a zebra. He makes the painting come together by removing edges, adding details, and increasing contrasts.

He shows you how to:

  • erase unnecessary lines from the original drawing
  • add texture using slight darkening on the fur
  • add highlights to the eye
  • add reflected light
