12-Step Breakdown


of:


A couple more steps were added to this one.

Turn commentary on and off by clicking in the middle of the viewing area.

If it isn't obvious you can go forward and back by clicking on the right and left edges of the viewing area, too. :nod:

12-Step Breakdown


of:


A long overdue breakdown, now with an updated format that can handle animation!

You may have to roll the mouse around the middle area or go back a step if you don't see any motion. The format's still a little buggy.

Other than that, it should work just fine. If not, let me know so I can troubleshoot.


QUICK NOTES:

Click in the center area for commentary.

Click on the left or right sides of the window to go forward or back.

That's all. Enjoy.

* The finished piece can be seen here. *

* Part 02 of the screen recording can be watched here. *

Depending on your connection speed, you'll either see this video moving at warp drive or a reasonable speed.

BREAKDOWN:

1) I start by blocking out the boundaries that I'll be coloring in. The flash of black you see is me creating the base color for the grayscale shading. This is done several times for different objects in the illustration.

2) I move on to the general lighting. I've restricted the light to be cast in only two levels of black and one soft highlight.

3) The grayscale shading is then converted to color using a gradient map. I use separate gradient maps for her skin, lips, eyes, and hair.

4) I move on to refinement in other areas...

I wasn't conscious of all the rotation and zooming that goes on when I work. Hopefully this video is still watchable and helpful in some way...

Everything you see takes place in Photoshop CS4.

Also, one frame of video equals one second of work time.

BREAKDOWN:

1a) I continue to finish the first few rows of grass in the background.

1b) Then I throw down the final refining lines on the girl. Just before...

2) I take the chance to tear into the background. Each layer of the grass is separated and hit with flat color using Color Overlay in the Layer Effects.

3) Now I start on the grass in the foreground. Beginning with one blade, I duplicate and position it several times to create separate and additional blades. These grass blades will be moved individually in After Effects, so I make sure they're on their own layers.

4) I move on to further refinement of the girl and choose her final colors using gradient maps. Last, but not least, I color the reed stick she is holding with one last gradient map.

5) Final step: I save and move everything in the file to After Effects for subtle motion editing.

This is the final part of the Girl of the Grasses screen recording series.

Everything you see takes place in Photoshop CS4.

Also, one frame of video equals one second of work time. All three parts of this series combined total 11 minutes of video.

I'll let you have fun doing the math. :D

Feel free to comment and ask questions about this. It was an early attempt at capturing my workflow.

This is the final product to a contest I'm entering and this in my entry. The contest was to make something that had a moomin character in it. I decided to do a simple walk cycle. I had a lot of fun with this and I'm happy with how it turn out. I play to do more with it but I'll post that at a different date, but it will be an experimental animation coloring it will traditional mediums. I want to see if I can keep the coloring in time with the movement.

EDIT:// Updated with a nicer title page.

Last minute as usual, here it isó 130 frames of procrastination and experimentation. I haven't touched creative writing in three years and comic-making in four, so my sense of pacing and movement is pretty messy. >.<

Please inform me about any broken buttons or performance errors, even though I wouldn't know how to fix it. Words needing directions back to their bubbles might show up, too.
