Using Distortion to Create Variation

By Don Seegmiller

In the second part of this five-part series, Painter Master Elite Don Seegmiller brings out a secret weapon in his concept work: the Distorto brush from the F-X brush collection! The Distorto brush pinches, stretches, pushes and pulls existing paint. With just a few setting changes, Don uses this simple brush to discover new art hiding just under the surface of an existing sketch. Learn how to take your concept in a whole new direction with nothing but a single brush, a little time, and your imagination.
