Build up the light­ing

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

Us­ing my Bris­tle brush, I like to think in lay­ers of light. Af­ter brush­ing in some light, I’ll in­crease the value just a lit­tle bit more and brush that in. Then I’ll in­crease it a lit­tle bit more, and brush it in. I do this all the way up to the high­lights.

Paint­ing cor­rec­tions

I try to be re­ac­tive in my paint­ing process and make changes as I need to. This might in­clude us­ing an Over­lay layer to brush more colour un­der the eyes, or dark­en­ing shad­ows to make his cheeks more sat­u­rated. I also slightly change the de­sign over time (it’s a good thing that I’m not too at­tached to my line work!), us­ing tools such as Liquify.
