1 I start in Pho­to­shop, and us­ing a broad brush I pro­ceed to block in large shapes for the head and hands. I switch to a smaller brush for adding de­tail. The scene is very loose at this point. I then take a pen­cil brush and lightly sketch in the vam­pire’s fa­cial fea­tures. 2 I add more de­tail to the face, cloth­ing, and cen­tre of mass. I start splash­ing in the bright or­ange that will be the light source com­ing from the stake wound. I re­flect that light­ing in the lower planes of the face. I use the Ro­tate Can­vas fea­ture a lot in this piece. 3 I add de­tail to the face. To lay in the dis­in­te­gra­tion ef­fects I take a rough tex­ture brush and lay down some or­ange. I re­duce this brush’s size and add the white­hot edge. I use a par­ti­cle brush to add glow­ing em­bers on a sep­a­rate layer, giv­ing them an or­ange glow and Gaus­sian Blur.
