Clean­ing up 3D

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - Artist Insight Better Environments -

A sim­ple SketchUp model like this will be strange to paint di­rectly onto, be­cause when ev­ery plane, edge and value is so per­fect and square, there is a kind of ‘dead’ feel­ing. I don’t like work­ing on top of some­thing like this, so I du­pli­cate the ren­der to a new, low Opac­ity layer, and throw on fil­ters like Smart Blur and smudge the paint around a bit with a Mixer brush or the Smudge tool un­til it’s al­most hazy with blur. Now when painted on top, the fresh paint and de­tails will be­come sharp fo­cal points to the ren­der un­derneath.
