    Cow C.O.W. - #059: Creek Crawler - Official Tutorial by JakkaS

    Tutorial for
    COW #059 - Creek Crawler

    artist:
    JakkaS



    JakkaS:
    "I start with few sketches, ideas but usually I know how the creature should look. So I am drawing a few variants of the chosen idea. Here are they with the brushes I have used for this painting.



    When I have my sketch, I make a blank new image and start drawing. I use the sketch but usually don’t work on them. When I am drawing it from the beginning, I have the opportunity to draw a few things in a different way or sometimes just by accident, I can find some new ideas.

    When I have my sketch, I can make a layer for first colors. I don’t start with grayscale like most of u do. Reason? I was trying it but I wasn’t satisfied. The colors were dirty and everything was too flat. Anyway, I start with my basic colors and when the colors are ok, I usually make the picture flat again (sometimes I work on many layers but not this time).

    At this moment, I work only with brushes. I don’t have any special technique so there is nothing to share with u. Maybe next time .

    After the drawing is finished I usually experiment with custom brushes or by adding the dirt, I am trying to make the picture more interesting. I use for this second layer set on multiply or other filter – I am still experimenting with this.


    Below u can fine the work steps and my final.

    Photoshop, about 10-11 hours.

    Interesting. Do you ever lasso stuff and tweak the hue saturation value as you get closer from mid-point to final?

    Its also cool to see you refine and edit ideas out of the picture... like the eyestalks coming out of the water.

    i've always wondered "how you do it" and now ....the answer! Thanks great stuff, I like the thumbs as well I need to start doing that more often. You're a master of polish that's for sure, whether its in the design of the subject or the execution. I look forward to seeing more of these.

    I'd like to see a step 3 1/2. It went fairly quickly from a colored sketch to an unfinished painting. But beggars can't be choosers, I guess. Awesome to see a master at work.
