Ap­ply colour to my char­ac­ter

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

Af­ter I’m done with black and white, I add colours on top. I cre­ate a new layer and lock it to the black and white layer (press Alt and move your cur­sor to­wards the mid­dle of both lay­ers un­til the cur­sor changes to the lock icon). I change the layer mode to Mul­ti­ply and add bright colours, be­cause the Mul­ti­ply layer will dull down the colours.

Fin­ish­ing de­tails and tex­ture

Af­ter this step I usu­ally merge all the Mul­ti­ply lay­ers and the black and white layer into a sin­gle layer to work on. Don’t for­get to al­ways back up your lay­ers, though. On the sin­gle layer, I begin to paint again, adding some tex­tures and de­tails with a cus­tom oil brush.
