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
Andantonius's avatar

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.

You're welcome! (: I meant the gif itself, thanks for your explanation!

Oh Gods, this is so amazing, I can't stop watching it over and over again! :wow:
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?

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.
