5 De­tail and sharp edges

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

Now, you can re­ally get into those de­tails and pol­ish your colour piece. Add in your dark­est darks now so they won’t be­come smudged by lighter colours. This is also the time to add in mark­ings such as spots and stripes or any­thing that has a hard edge. Fur and scales can also be de­fined here, but keep it sparse: too much ren­der­ing can make forms look flat.

Things like pupils and deep cracks can be drawn in us­ing a finetipped pen, like a Mi­cron. You can also add in a bit of back­ground in­di­ca­tion to help pop your fi­nal colour job. It’s im­por­tant to hold off on mark­ings un­til the end. Things like stripes are best saved for last – they can smudge when drawn over.
