Tack­ling the back­ground

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - In Depth For Honor Art -

Just as I did for cor­rect­ing things be­fore, here I put a layer above my can­vas, which I fill up with some lighter colour and then lower the Opac­ity. Now on an­other layer above again, I use a hard-edged Round brush that’s set to 80 per cent Opac­ity to roughly sketch in some char­ac­ters and the on­go­ing bat­tle in the back­ground. I then delete the layer in be­tween, so I only keep my lines, which I also lower the Opac­ity on, and quickly block in some val­ues. This will all stay pretty rough and blurry be­cause the back­ground doesn’t play a big role in the pic­ture: it’s just there to add some sto­ry­telling and en­hance the over­all mood.
