    heres some progression shots for ya.still WIP prolly a day spent on it so far, no photo ref used.Sorry for the shit notes on each step,not good at explaining things.Wep of choice here is Painter.

    here ive started of with a rough gestural sketch, scribbling down notes, words that spark off an idea help.brainstorm.
    Rusty - Update [Feb 2013]

    start making sense of shit i guess, give a rough but accurate layout,suggest where shadows go but dont go over board because this layer will be painted over in the end.
    Rusty - Update [Feb 2013]

    start laying down flesh tones,under neath outline layer..
    Rusty - Update [Feb 2013]

    ...hmm?
    Rusty - Update [Feb 2013]

    ...uh shadows? WTF
    Rusty - Update [Feb 2013]

    ah, make a layer over top of everything and start sharpening stuff up, eye dropper and paint brush combo.

    awesome !!!!
    that´s a great step by step
    i´m glad you are back posting

    by the way "the highest points"
    refer to the parts or planes facing the
    lightsource more perpendicular, aka the
    brightest parts?, cause that torso is really
    well done, you can feel it´s turning.

    I like the energy that all your
    work shows dude and the rendering
    looks energetic too, didn´t lost any impact
    from the linework.

    This is a small speed painting demo which took about an hour of coffee and cigarette fueled leg shaking to do. No reference material was used just good ol` imagination did the talking, still dosent explain why i ended up drawing a ginge, hulk-ish dude, hmmm...

    STEP 1:
    Open Canvas is cool for sketching because of the rotation control (hold down left ALT and use the mouse or pen to spin that fucker around which ever way you likey). Do your line work on another layer and keep rendering to a minimum if you can because heavy hatching can become problematic later on down the track. Save it as a PSD file and open it up in PS.
    Rusty - Update [Feb 2013]


    STEP 2:
    Make another layer under the line work layer and start blocking in. Good time to use colour palettes if your got em. Natural way for me to block in colour is to lay down a flat mid tone first, then followed by slightly darker tone to lightly accentuate the deepest points, do what ever feels natural to you. Main point i want to highlight is don't be tight arsed about details at this stage you want to be quite loose, look at the image as a whole rather than focusing on an area.
    Rusty - Update [Feb 2013]



    STEP 3:
    Start to smooth out hard edges and rounding forms out. Much like step 2, keep an eye on the image as a whole; is the lighting working/convincing? keep your strokes quite loose but accurate. Move onto next step only when your forms and lighting are working.
    Rusty - Update [Feb 2013]



    STEP 4:
    Further rounding forms out and sharpening up details. Here its a good idea to paint on a new layer above previous colour layer (but below outline layer) so you can switch between painting and your blocked out forms as you`re painting. Your Painting should be starting to take shape here, be methodical here and keep comparing to previous layer ;is wat im doing improving upon blocked out forms or fucking them up?
    Rusty - Update [Feb 2013]



    STEP 5:
    Switch to outline layer, set your eraser flow very low and start to knock back unnecessary lines and construction, Personally i like leaving a bit of roughness in sketches because it adds a bit more flavour to the mix. If your doing crisp, clean cut artwork from here on you should add another layer above everything and paint much in the style of step 4, switching back and forth to keep everything in check.
    Rusty - Update [Feb 2013]



    STEP 6:
    Tweaking and finalizing of image; adjusting hues, curves, adding of filters and textures, etc.
    Done and done!, hope this tutorial was helpful.
    Rusty - Update [Feb 2013]


    Robogabo your too kind dude, your latest stuff really kicks ass!
    AlexC thx mate, nah must be some other dude, i still living in NZ.
    Sanoma bah i pretty much fucked that painting up when i started,heh! hope new tutorial helps.
    Sybo hey dude, pretty sad i wont be finishing my 3rd year with you guys, i ended up landing a good paying concept artist job and since i was broke as hell i took it. All the best too you fullas now and in the future.


    churs all...

    Hiddy!

    Longtime since i've posted anything in here though i'm on this site constantly checking sh*t out when i should be working, heh! I've been busy these days but i still go life drawing once a week with a group of NZ'ders here on CA.org, here's a few pages. Also, there's some sketches from the M.B workshop that was held here last year and a small sketch Coro drew mixed in there if ya can spot them, churs for that dude

    Sorry about the shitty quality of the pics, could'nt be f*cked scanning them all so i just blasted them all with my digital camera. The 2 mummie images are referenced everything else is from life, 4B pencil on a smooth grain A4 sketchbook i scored down in Wellington, silky smooth stuff, real sweet to draw on. All poses range from 1 min to 1 hour, most of them are 15 min sketches.

    Cheers fellas...

    Well, i'm back on the unemployed list but have been motivated to be as productive as possible during this time as i
    embark on my mission to get into Weta Workshop. Here's a few things for my portfoilo.

    Jason and the Argonauts redesign. Basically gonna set the story in a Steampunk world, while i've kept the essentials
    of the original story a lot of it is different and original, still a long way to go but i'm having a lot of fun with it

    For more info on the backstory i've written out for this project go HERE

    DDK248 No there are none just the usual universities and art schools, wish there were though!

    surus Well i guess i just don't get precious when i'm sketching and just draw over everything like it was a post-it note, heh! i mean it is a "sketch" book not a "finished" book

    Cheers all
