In this video I will talk about one of my approaches to setting up lights and color for a character and how they can effect the mood of an image. You’ll see what is essentially a speed-painting from start to finish all while I explain the process as I work.
At the beginning of the video I mention having plans for the character to have a sci-fi design. Don’t believe the voice in the video, he’s a liar. I don’t know what happened but my brain switched to a fantasy theme instead,
-a layered PSD
-a 2 hour video of the painting process
-a photoshop brush file containing the brushes used in the video
This tutorial is intended for anyone with intermediate level knowledge of photoshop and digital painting.
