Step by Steps : Refining Brickstone by Darkavey Step by Steps : Refining Brickstone by Darkavey
Sharing a smoll process when making of brick stone thingy :iconpapcryplz:
I'm using Photoshop CS5 ^^
  1. Always start with a really rough sketch
  2. Refining the sketch layer. For the shadow from the leaves: I made a new layer and use the leave brush I shared here . I like to make the shadow look a bit blurry, like giving off the visual of the leaves moving up there, so I use Gaussian blur (You can access Gaussian Blur from: Filter >>> Blur >>> Gaussian Blur)
  3. I merged all the layer. I selected couple of bricks using Polygonal lasso tool and use Color Balance to changed it into a reddish hue (You can go to Color Balance by click : Image >>> Adjustments >>> Color Balance)
  4. Add more details to the brick and leave it that way 
I haven't got much time to make decent background tutorials so I'll share couple of smoll process of the art that I'm going to put into an Artbook, I talked about it before through this journal
Full version of this will only be available in the Artbook. Thank you so much for the positive and kind respond regarding the Artbook project ;v;

I hope this process could give a smoll help to some people who's trying to figure out the way to refining a similar brick :iconcryforeverplz:
as always, Thank you so much for stopping by! :heart:
