my process is never pretty...especially with battle scenes, 1st attempt on the comp idea i have, i always start with either scribbles, or just siluets, oh and i usually make sounds when im drawing like this
put the layer to lower opacity and scribble again on top of it. its like untangling threads
lower the opacity again and this time focus on whether the comp reads well, the variation of shapes etc
once its all cleaned up, i like to separate values like this then send it to client, this helps me as a guide not to screw it up later on, which i always still do...
chicken scratch galore
clean it up
ooh look i flip it XD how fancy...
this is the 2nd rough that didnt get picked. the brief actually focus on 2 characters, the guy in the front and the dr octopus back there , but still they went with the 1st one sooooo thats life folks XD
ok 1st wip, i love this part. drawing the lines help me figure out the forms, and adding the details in line saves me headaches when painting later...unfortunately this is also what cause me over render i think ,im sorry brush economy godz im tryinggggg T
block it in, clean it up
then this part is where i add colorz and have mild headache afterwards, coz...colorz duh, i always try to contrast, and kept notes from the amazing jana, about cool warm relation thingie, which ofc i also failed most of the times.
color flatz. and testing the light scheme i have in mind
i add up another dude on the right to balance things out i think....dont quite remember why i did that, same with almost every decision i made in life... oh why did i ended up like diz.
i got shortcircuit about scales in the back dude there, so i enlarged him.
and even too much...
so i shrink it XDDD and its done...ish.
ok its been fun kthxbai.
no really o.o i got nothing left.
