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!






cs4/ cintiq

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 (=

when im doing comic pages i use a lot but in this case i was using mostly one layer, i often merge clipping masks because i always mess with edges
when adding something or "experimenting" i will do it in a new layer and then merge down if successful

That's a great technique! I did notice that the first initial rough silhouette is different then the rest. Is that meant to be changed afterwards?

be prepared to change anything and everything at any given time... as a great artist once said, "just because you might like a specific part does not mean it is working for the composition."

for this piece, the giant fan in the silhouette was blocking the booty shot so i took it out right away. if i paint her hand as if she is holding something i can add a fan in final touches stage. i also warped the silhouette to change it from a standing pose to walking

the purpose of the silhouette is to spark the idea that there is a female figure there. it is important to stay loose and quick so i dont worry about it being exact. also if you change it enough you can reuse the same silhouette to start another pic! they are like templates (=

Very cool indeed! I will think of using the very same techniques when I work around the figures too. Thanks, very helpful!

technique is more like sculpting than drawing so its a little different at first but it gets REALLY fun!

hahaha yea i use adobe photoshop cs4 and a wacom tablet (=
steps 1-3 are mainly just defining the general shape of the figure divided into light and shadow
thanks soechan!
