samurai 031 process by dinmoney samurai 031 process by dinmoney
[link] to original
my attempt at a walkthrough of my general process...

i generally use a flat (pallete kife) brush as seen here [link]
switching between opec and non-opec depending on desired effect

1. silhouette, rough out general shape of figure in solid black

2. block in value zones/ set pose

3. refining face, costume and body

4. defining light, cleaning edges, andcreating unique costume

5. rendering and final touches


feel free to ask any questions (=

i can make a video of my process if this does well
hopefully this is helpful to someone!

hmmm - what do you mean by define? I always wondered how people neatened up their sketchy beginnings. I always have to start neat to end neat

well defining (to me) means bringing more clarity and specificity to the painting once lighting has been established. since i start with a black blob, i add light first, then begin moving things and repainting areas until they are clear and easy to read.
examples of defining are things like sharpening edges, smoothening color transitions, and rendering details
hope that helps a bit (=
