Raven Altar - process by sandara Raven Altar - process by sandara
As requested. :)

The 3D software I used was Modo, but really, any 3D software will do.
Also, my modelling is terrible, since I haven't touched it for nearly a decade, but for this kind of photobashing purposes, I guess it's good enough.

When rendering, you can also render the alpha, the illumination and the surface id, which is a big help in selecting areas when painting later on.
If I had a little foresight, I would have set the green secondary light source in 3D. But I didn't, so I had to paint it in.
Also, if I knew how, I'd have changed the FOV, but I didn't. XD So the comp looks rather boring.

Hope it helps!

thanks for showing your method, its inspiring to see that one can use Zbrush and Photoshop together like this. I want to try this sometimes.
Do you have more artworks in mind which use a similar method? Could you write their name or link to them? I'd like to use them as inspiration, theres a particular scene that I've been thinking about for 10 years and this might be a good method to do it with :)

You could take a look at the works of Eytan Zana, who is simply amazing at this kind of style.

For me, it's even more impressive now that you showed you made a 3D model first! I think it shows you're giving importance to the underlying construction, and not making stuff up as you go along and hope it will fit somehow Phew!  (Sure, there are certainly people who know exactly what they're doing without a detailed construction, but hey...)
So: Thanks for sharing this!

... Oh! O_o Fascinating! :nod:
It's stuff like this here on DeviantArt that always gives me the sensation:
"Ah! So that's another way how it can be done! :D" ;P
Thanks for sharing this, sandara! :hug:

This is a quick and fast way to paint. By blocking out the architectural elements first, you get the correct perspective and angle very easily. It's just a technique.

I never said it would be bad, or somehting like this. It's just, as I saw the Picture, I don't think there was a model.
And ... easy ... yes, if the drawer CAN model, than it's easy, maybe ;)

I’m actually glad that you couldn’t tell there was a base model used. It’s not supposed to be obvious. :)

it is still a whole drawing? lol don't be dense. she uses the model here, yes, but it's used expertly and she still paints over and on top of it to complete the illustration.

don't make it seem like her using a 3D model takes away from the craft of this.

You likely have... It's done very often now, (manga, graphic novels, and book covers) and you would not know if the artist didn't show the process like this.

Of course it depends on what it will be used for, like here where it's only used as a base and going to be painted over, but I must agree with sandara that the model's not that good...
The final piece is a whole other matter though, really cool!

Haha, a lot of my friends and colleagues are modellers and all of my students are way more proficient in 3d than I am. I guess that's why. :) This model that took me a day to make would take 4 mins for my colleague.
