In­tro­duce colours on dif­fer­ent layer modes

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - Workshops -

Once I’m happy with my val­ues I start ap­ply­ing colours on lay­ers set to Over­lay, Mul­ti­ply, Color Dodge, Darken and so on. I try to vary my colours and pick new ones sev­eral times in the Color win­dow. Be­cause my character has yel­low­ish skin, I use greens, browns, or­anges, yel­lows and even some cyan. Then I drop my lay­ers and keep on paint­ing nor­mally. Fi­nally I draw some tat­too-like shapes on one side of her face, be­fore flip­ping them to the other side. I con­sider turn­ing th­ese tat­toos into cus­tom brushes for later use.

Paintng with pat­tern brushes

I in­tro­duce a few de­signs us­ing some cus­tom pat­tern brushes. I cre­ate one by tak­ing a graphic, trans­form it into a brush and then play around with the set­tings within the nat­u­ral Brush me­dia win­dow (Brush tip shape> Spac­ing and Shape dy­nam­ics>An­gle Jit­ter set to Di­rec­tion). Such brushes are ideal for cre­at­ing cloth­ing pat­terns, tat­toos and scales, for ex­am­ple.
