First steps of ren­der­ing

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

I start on Ti­ta­nia’s face. First, how­ever, I need to de­cide what light­ing I’m go­ing for. I want the im­age to be brightly lit, with few shad­ows, so that the colours are vi­brant. I be­gin by lay­ing down a ba­sic coat­ing of shadow and grad­u­ally build up the skin tones on top, build­ing form with shadow. I make good use of layer blend­ing modes such as Over­lay and Mul­ti­ply at this stage.
