Colour and cos­tume

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - In Depth Manga Figure -

Next up is colours. I merge the lines and shad­ows layer and set the Blend­ing Mode to Color Burn. This keeps the shad­ows in place and so I just need to care­fully add nor­mal colours. One pic­ture here is with a Color Burn layer (A), the other is just a colours layer with­out shad­ing (B). As I’m adding more de­tails I start to think­ing about her cos­tume. I’ve got it! I think she’s a DJ, play­ing elec­tronic mu­sic. So I want her cos­tume to feel dig­i­tal and fu­tur­is­tic, but not too ro­botic or crazy (C). You can see my first rough of the cos­tume here, but I later ditch this look be­cause it’s re­sem­bles a mech power suit. (D).
