6 Paint­ing an army

ImagineFX - - In Depth Epic Battle -

I de­cide to save time and cre­ate a cus­tom brush to paint the count­less wildlings – the army of soldiers – in the scene. I start by set­ting a new doc­u­ment’s size at 500 x 500 px and paint­ing a few char­ac­ters in slightly dif­fer­ent poses. I en­sure that the space be­tween them is var­ied and ir­reg­u­lar. Once I’ve painted three or four char­ac­ters, I click Edit>De­fine Brush Pre­set. I can later make additional changes to the set­tings of my brush in the Brush op­tions menu. This type of cus­tom brush comes in handy, when I know I’ll be deal­ing with a large num­ber of small sil­hou­ettes.
