Golden flecks and glow

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

I want to add a few free float­ing flecks to add touches of gold around the rest of the im­age, rather than just the threads. I also want to use those flakes to add some other el­e­ments that are glow­ing, be­sides the char­ac­ter. I’m paint­ing the flecks opaquely, then adding a soft air­brushed glow above them. A dab of Over­lay above helps to make the glow stand out.

Last touches and tex­tures

We’re in the home stretch now! It’s just a case of adding those last lit­tle touches to tie ev­ery­thing to­gether, which al­ways takes so much longer than you think it will, fun­nily enough. I’m adding a lit­tle bit of a grungy tex­ture over the top of ev­ery­thing (set to Over­lay) to in­tro­duce a bit more grit. I’m also adding a few more flakes of gold here and there to fin­ish things off.
