The tutorial was a little long to be able to post here so I'm gonna have to redirect you to the article on DeviantArt:

An interesting and somewhat ingenious method.

I have my own method, which is also based on free software and uses the ArtRage scripting facility. I have one for both windows and mac.

Windows.

1. While painting make sure that the script recording is enabled.
2. When the painting has been finished, export the script.
3. I tend to like my script playback to be very minimal, so I run a script that I have created using the free Notepad++ which removes all references, zooms and oher bits and bobs, so the script will just replay a centred painting in workbench mode.
3. Now start recording using the free Camstudio, and accelerate playback the modified script in ArtRage.
4. Now open up in the free Windows Movie Maker, speed up the replay and tidy up, add in titles, music, captions, e.t.c.

Mac.

Pretty much the same except I created the script transformation script in a tool called TextWrangler (it was either free, or very inexpensive), recorded using the free Quicktime player screen recording facility, and of course edited in the free iMovie instead of Movie Maker.

Here is a couple of my videos :

You've got some serious skill man. Loved your Groot painting. Actually just went through and looked at your vids yesterday after I noticed you had subscribed.

As far as your method goes.. lol its above my head. I have 0 skill with scripts or coding. I'd say your method is far more ingenious though. The quality is much better as well. I tried figuring out the script option in Artrage a long while back.. and figured I'd just figure out my own way instead lol. I subscribed to your channel by the way. And I will be doing a video on my method and posting it sometime this week. Just waiting for some time to set down and talk to the computer lol (dont like talking to nothin with other people around).
