Thread: Nick's Rage Against the Machine Spot

  1. #271
    on your WIP--you laid in masses with an airbrush, marker?

    then you inked the tonal sketch (the masses)--correct

    then you detaild after that

    looks like you have multiple layers as well.

    I'm trying to understand the workflow for digital painting. I'm very new at this so any help or advice from you would be very much appreciated.

    Thanks for all the positive feedback chaps.

    Jayd - I tend to sketch with the pencil, then block in masses with the chalk and/or crayon tool. I use the same for solid colours as I build up and overlay more tones and colours using the watercolour tool. That's a brief but more or less round up of my working methodology. Line will be tidied up with the pencil or inkline tool.

    Meanwhile here are a couple of sketches working towards something else in the pipeline.

    You are always really encouraging Caesar. Thank you so much for that. Not much progress while I juggle several jobs madly, but here's a couple more early WIP's.

    Swoon! loving those characterful faces the cross hatchy type line work is one technique i always enjoy so much and yet find it such a tricky one if ever I give it a go

    cheers
