Ap­ply­ing scales to the fish

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

Af­ter giv­ing Mr Beef some bling, I use lines to paint a fish scale pat­tern on a new layer (as shown). Next I use Edit> Trans­form>Warp to wrap this pat­tern around the fish. Then I Cmd-click the layer thumb­nail to load it as a se­lec­tion. Now I in­vert the loaded se­lec­tion and, on a new layer, run a soft wide white brush over the mid­dle of the fish. In­stant fish scales!

Glows and colour over­lays

I cre­ate a lay­ers folder called Glows, then on a layer in it I air­brush turquoise on the lower torso and lighter colours on the shoul­ders. I set the layer to Over­lay and 50 per cent Opac­ity. Next layer I air­brush white on sun­lit ar­eas, re­peat on a layer in yel­low, and set both to Over­lay to add glow­ing translu­cency to the skin. On an­other layer I add sub­tle wa­ter re­flec­tions on the lower abs.
