Ap­ply­ing the fi­nal touches

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

This is one of the most en­joy­able parts of the paint­ing: ad­just­ing el­e­ments to make the im­age re­ally pop. I use Color Bal­ance and Lev­els to tweak colour and mood, and I try to push the twi­light at­mos­phere. I also like to use Ad­just­ment Lay­ers above my can­vas dur­ing the fi­nal tun­ing stage. I add some noise with a very low Opac­ity, to give the pic­ture a pa­per-like ap­pear­ance. Fi­nally, I play with High Pass/Sharpen and Mo­tion/ Zoom/Ra­dial Blur for the mov­ing parts and to bet­ter sep­a­rate the fore, mid­dle and back­grounds. See you on the bat­tle­fields (or Val­halla), war­riors – Odin owns you all!
