Adding tex­ture

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

Adding tex­ture is a great way to bring in more colours. I place a num­ber of rust tex­tures over the paint­ing and lock them to my three base lay­ers with clip­ping mask. On the left side is how it looks like when you put those tex­tures on Lighten mode. I love this layer mode be­cause it will only af­fect those colours that are darker than the tex­ture.

Giv­ing my char­ac­ter more hair

To be hon­est I’m re­ally lazy when it comes to paint­ing hair, so I use a se­lec­tion of one of my older paint­ings of a girl who has wild-look­ing hair. I spend time al­ter­ing it with the Trans­form tool so that no one will recog­nise the orig­i­nal source ma­te­rial. I think I’ve pulled it off! All the sin­gle hair strands also in­stantly make the im­age look more de­tailed.
