First colours on her skin tones

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

I im­port the value study to my new can­vas as a Nor­mal layer and then lock it to avoid paint­ing on it. I cre­ate a Soft Light layer above this one, which acts as a trans­parency as I start paint­ing the skin tones on her face, us­ing an Air­brush tool. I don’t use any tex­ture ef­fects at this early stage.

Eyes and eye­brows

To paint eyes and eye­brows I cre­ate a Nor­mal layer above the oth­ers, set my brushes on a low Opac­ity (be­tween 20 and 30 per cent) and use them on the spot­lights, de­tail­ing the iris, and cre­at­ing mois­ture ef­fects and shad­ows. I use Manga Stu­dio’s Pen­cil and Rough Pen­cil, Soft Air­brush, Smooth Wa­ter­color and a cus­tomised brush to add tex­ture to the iris.
