Get­ting into the de­tails

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

Here’s where I zoom into my can­vas and get into the small de­tails. It’s at this point that I work on the eye­lashes, eye­brows, stub­ble and wounds. I keep these de­tails in a sep­a­rate layer, and usu­ally stick to a hard, Round brush. For paint­ing the hair, I find that it’s best done with a streaky brush.

Ad­just­ing my colours

Some­times the best way to unify all the sep­a­rately coloured com­po­nents is through the Curves tool or us­ing Se­lec­tive Color lay­ers. These can take a bit of fid­dling, though. Chan­nel­ing my sci-fi theme, I start off with some blues and then amp up the brighter tones. I also add in my own noise tex­ture. I copy and paste this into my doc­u­ment and set it to Over­lay.
