Us­ing the Path tool

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

I use the Path tool to cre­ate a fuel hose. With the Cir­cle Se­lec­tion tool I fill in a gra­di­ent and then draw a curve with the Path tool from the cen­tre. I then set the Stroke path to Smudge and Pho­to­shop au­to­mat­i­cally fills the line with light and shadow to look like a pipe. I then ad­just the val­ues and sat­u­ra­tion to fit the en­vi­ron­ment.

Putting in those fin­ish­ing touches

Lastly I add rim light, hose de­tails and lights in the cock­pit as well as on the build­ing in the dis­tance. When I know that I’m reach­ing the end of a paint­ing, I tend to work messy. I merge lay­ers, use Lev­els and add film grain to give the scene a cin­e­matic look. And there we have it. Time to send it to the client!
