Better late than never!

I didn't get to my PC all day and decided to cram late-night-style to make sure I got this out the door. It's a step by step process on my recent Wolverine piece seen here: [link]

Hey there, everybody!

Here is my first attempt at a tutorial for DA. Hooray!

I just wanted to make a generally straight forward tutorial. I don't get into too many details but it shows a high level view of my process. Hopefully it won't be too offensive, hehe.

This is all correct information when using Photoshop 7-CS4 Extended. I work on an Intuous 3.

Let me know what you think and I'll do my best to provide updates and answers.

Only one amendment: I forgot to explain that my method of keeping things separate and organized helps you remain flexible when you want to change things quickly.

That's all.

Thanks everyone!

Hiyooooooooo~!

Here are the major stages from the Crimson piece. Just a high level walkthrough. If you want to see much more in-depth explanations to my art, check out my Live Stream channel for video and live tutorial.

Step 1:

For some reason I decided to sketch in blue, then tighten in red, then sketch in red, then tighten in blue, the finish in blue... it was a mess. So, this is the raw scan from page to screen.

Step 2:

This is what it looked like after desaturating it and adjusting the levels to try to bring it back to life. Problem is, it's messy as hell.

Step 3:

That takes me to one of the more serious clean up jobs I have had to do in a while. This part is annoying because I just want to get to the painting. Here I later erase the lines for the blood and other little elements to soften them in the paint process. I vertically stretched the image a tad because it suddenly seemed squashed.

Step 4:

I painted Alex up first. I wanted to make sure I paid the most attention to him. Here I did some things differently that usual. I used more layers of paint for the face and I textured the coat with more paint strokes than textures.

Step 5:

The victim gets painted up. Sampled the blood from Alex's mouth. The rest is all unique color picks. She has a different skin tone that Alex so I wanted to keep it fresh and not color pick anything from him. Also, I kept the blood gloopy because that's how it always looked in the comic.

Step 6:

I started on a different BG than the final version but this one is much stronger. Here I apply all the final effects. Rim light, moon glow, and color layers add the last touches.

Hope you enjoyed! Stay tuned for the next Live Stream!

Hey gang!

I had planned on doing something like this and then :iconanjinanhut: screwed it up by beating me to the punch! Hahaha...

Anyhow, he put up a sweet insight into his work by giving everyone a psd. So, I am doing the same thing with my Colossus painting. Even though it's free for me I hope you guys get a lot of value from this. I had a banner year (for me) and it's all because of you guys.

Thanks for 2009... Here's to 2010!

Hit Download on the left to get the PSD. It was done in Photoshop CS4 and is best viewed when opened with the same program (however, older versions will open it with adjusted folder structure). Physical size has been reduced due to file size.

Thanks!

Hey peeps!

So I set out to make the most unhelpful tutorial ever... and here it is!

Haha.... actually I just wanted to provide an example of the workflow I use when creating this time of painting. I like to shift between my normal painterly stuff to this because it allows me to get ideas down much faster.

This was all done digitally with a custom brush.

If you have any questions let me know. Hit download for the full size version. Final deviation can be found here: [link]

Hey peoples!

Here is the workflow for Man-At-Arms. Orko will be going up tomorrow.

I had a lot of statements on the last workflow like "33 layers?!?!11" and "33 Layers?!?!OMGWTF?!"

33 layers is really, really low for me. Crack into my Colossus PSD I posted a couple years ago. I easily break 100 in each painting I do.

Oh yeah... hit Download for full resolution version!

This is my easy 8 step guide to creating character art in Photoshop.

I've learned a lot from various artists here on DA, and I hope this gives back to the community.

BTW, anyone know how to add a separate preview image?

Feel free to 'fave' if this helps ya.
