Ren­der­ing the de­tails

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

Now I con­cen­trate on the de­tails. This is where I tra­di­tion­ally would have used colour pen­cils, so I cre­ate a lightly tex­tured brush. Af­ter es­tab­lish­ing a new layer I set the brush’s Opac­ity to about 80 per cent and Size to about the same as the lines in the draw­ing. I usu­ally start with ar­eas such as eye re­flec­tions and shiny armour, since I know that they’ll be the bright­est parts of the paint­ing.
