Tex­tures and de­tails

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

Now my pic­ture starts to head to­wards the fin­ish. I be­gin to add de­tails and tex­tures. I paint most of the tex­tures by hand and then use some tex­ture brushes. I use cus­tom brushes (you can get hold of these along with this is­sue’s re­sources) which are great for de­vel­op­ing a re­al­is­tic look for leathers, met­als or fab­rics. I paint them at full Opac­ity on a new layer and then ad­just the layer’s Opac­ity to get them right. I erase what I don’t need and drop my lay­ers again to do the fi­nal scratches and de­tails by hand, us­ing a sim­ple hard-edged Round brush. Some­times I use the Lasso tool for the fi­nal set of hard lights on hard sur­faces.
