New Challengers by raikoart

I didn't get into the semi finalists but this was an extremely interesting and enriching experience for me, and I thought I'd share the process with you!

Feel free to ask me any questions if you want!

As requested the steps to the painting eruption.
A total of 18 WIP shots - had to scale it down a tad, it was getting super big. And downsizing 18 images from 6500 to 1k is a pain.

Modeled in Blender, rendered with KeyShot and finally created the laser effects with Photoshop =)

1. Sketch. I drew it in close reference to my Jedi!Elsa, since this was an after-thought. (Those who were on my stream would have seen struggle with the pose lol, I couldn't quite decide a good one.)
2. Lines, flat colors and ambient occlusion.
3. Main diffuse and specular. Here I chose a white frontal light.
4. I started painting the background in and at this point I was pretty unsure about what the final product would look like. I applied lots of adjustment layers - photo filter, levels, color balance, selective color.
5. I decided the piece needed some storytelling element to it, so I thought about the scene where Anna confronts Elsa at her ice palace. The idea of Olaf as an astrodroid also struck me here, and I thought it would be really cool.
6. Started polishing and adding blur effects etc. to convey the depth and motion.
7. Refining and repositioning. Here I was almost complete when I suddenly felt it looked pretty flat overall and was lacking something.
8. I took away some Elsa, especially her face to convey more volume. I also added in Sith tattoos inspired by the Frozen snowflake symbol. I felt I had to give Kristoff and Anna some 'roles' so I painted in an impression of a blaster pistol and lightsaber flying away from them, as if Elsa was confiscating their weapons with her powers. Finally, here I also corrected anatomy problems through liquify.

Feel free to ask any questions!

Hopefully I'll have some new stuff here soon, but I'd thought somebody might be interested to see the in-progress shots I kept for the the Assassin's Creed illustration I put up not too long ago.

For a written walk-through of all of this, visit my blog:
