Azure Process by Andantonius Azure Process by Andantonius
Here's the step-by-step process for my Azure piece: [Link]

Pretty straightforward on this one, started with loose sketching, clean-ish linework on top of that, an underpainting, then a few days in rendersville. :)

Probably around 25 hours total.

Cool to see the progress! :D What kind of filter/texture did you use to get that 'grainy' effect? :3
Reply
:iconandantonius:
Andantonius Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2015  Professional Digital Artist
Thanks very much!

And the grainy thing, are you referring to something in the final image or just the process gif? If it's the gif, that's just artifacting from it being a gif: in order to save file size it only uses 256 colors so instead of smooth gradients it creates dithering with solid pixels speckled together to create the illusion of a gradient.

Just wanted to let you know, your art is really amazing, it just inspires to practice more :squee:
I have one little question, are you using Photoshop, or some other programs too?

Andantonius Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2015  Professional Digital Artist
haha, thanks very much!

And yep, all my work is done in Photoshop, though I'll often block out complicated structures / weapons in SketchUp too.

I'd be interested to know a bit more about how you did the tail. It looked like you used some sort of curve tool to get that nice clean sweep.
Reply
:iconandantonius:
Andantonius Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2015  Professional Digital Artist
Sorry for the crazy late response; but yeah whenever I need a really long and precise curve I'll use the pen tool to design the shape, then fill the selection on its own layer and lock the transparency so it stays clean while I render.

I think I've always had an issue with the linework part and going straight to render from the rough-ish sketch. xD But really awesome. :)

:iconandantonius:
Andantonius Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Haha, yeah, I used to start painting a lot earlier but I've learned as the years go on that most of the problems in my artwork happened because of not spending enough time at the drawing stage, so I try to clean up the lines as much as possible before starting the render.

How do you render so well? ;---; Could you do a tutorial?
Reply
:iconandantonius:
Andantonius Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Haha, thanks! I'm afraid there's really no secret to it, it's just an application of light and form fundamentals and the patience to noodle on things for hours until they look right, haha. If you want to study the subjects I'd definitely recommend James Gurney's book Color and Light. :)
