Colour­ing the glass

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

I cre­ate a new layer, place it un­der the stained glass frame and be­gan to paint. I choose sat­u­rated colours be­cause I know I’ll be blur­ring them later on. At the top of the glass I add sim­ple splashes of colour. I don’t need to pay too much at­ten­tion to those colours be­cause they’ll be in­dis­tinct in the fin­ished im­age.

Merge colour lay­ers

I merge the colour layer with the black line art and I set it to Color Dodge in the Lay­ers pal­ette. Ev­ery­thing that was black be­comes trans­par­ent and ev­ery­thing that was colour­ful be­comes bright, but also with a hint of the dom­i­nant pic­ture colour. Now it’s just a case of edit­ing, trans­form­ing, dis­tort­ing and adapt­ing the frame’s shape to my per­spec­tive lines.
