Drop in some rim light

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

Since my anti-hero is lit from be­hind, it makes per­fect sense for me to in­tro­duce some rim light. I set a new layer to Screen and paint around the curves of his face and body with white and pale blue colours. For this step, I al­ter­nate be­tween my hard Round brush and my Air­brush. I keep this fairly ba­sic, know­ing I can re­visit this once I fin­ish off the back­ground.

Boost­ing the char­ac­ter’s in­ten­sity

He’s still not rough enough for my lik­ing. I want him to look like he’s freshly come out of a fight. So I add some chips to his ar­mour and tear up his cloth­ing a bit. I also add ex­tra blood to his wounds and ar­mour. Then I en­hance his rugged ap­pear­ance by paint­ing in more stub­ble, some smears of dirt, and mess up his hair.
