13 In­tro­duc­ing tex­ture to the crown

ImagineFX - - In Depth Portrait Skills -

Now I need to add more tex­ture to the crown, es­pe­cially on the feath­ers. I use a ba­sic Round edge brush (with Hard­ness at 100 per cent and Opac­ity Jit­ter set to 100 per cent), and then paint some lit­tle brush strokes all over the feath­ers, to create a myr­iad of colour vari­a­tions that mimic the tex­ture of their real-world coun­ter­parts. I do the same on the crown to em­u­late the ap­pear­ance of old, slightly tar­nished gold. I don’t want some­thing clean. In­clud­ing flaws helps to achieve more re­al­ism in the scene.
