Ren­der­ing a sea god

ImagineFX - - Workshops -

I switch to Pho­to­shop and start ren­der­ing Po­sei­don in de­tail. I al­ready have a colour scheme and value pas­sages es­tab­lished in the wa­ter­colour un­der­paint­ing. Us­ing a ba­sic brush and re­fer­ring to the stur­geon pho­to­graph, I start build­ing up the form of Po­sei­don. I pay care­ful at­ten­tion to the light di­rec­tion to ren­der it with a three­d­i­men­sional feel. At this stage in the paint­ing process I’m es­tab­lish­ing mid­tones, with the un­der­paint­ing pro­vid­ing the shadow ar­eas.
