Unicorn - Steps by theDURRRRIAN Unicorn - Steps by theDURRRRIAN
decided to do a rough step by step of how i painted the unicorn. i glanced over the technicalities since they mite take too long to explain in text so if anything needs explaining i think i can type it out to whoever asks :P

and no there isnt any video of this since my current pc cant handle camtasia with a painting of this resolutionat the same time

feel free to download the high res if you cant read the text

hope you find this (somewhat) helpful :)

Whoa, it is very impressive for the hybrid painting technique.

I will try this one since I have some gunplas. (except I have to use my smartphone's camera since I don't have any DSLR or mirrorless camera)

ah well for the sazabi and the nu gundam i used a samsung's phone camera as a photoplate. As long as you have a clear picture, all it takes is some cleanup and you're ready to start painting :)

Epic work. I had never thought of starting from a physical action figure to created a digital painting...makes SO much sense. Thank you for sharing your process.

Cool. Looking at the final it's hard to believe it began as a picture of the toy.

Photoshop is just a tool. 80-90% of the time it comes down to how much you know about light/color/form/etc

and here im only using a handful of photoshoppy techniques. the rest of it is just plain painting :)

It's way better than anything I could do in 5-7 hours in Photoshop.
