    environment design - sparth tutorial 02

    okay, here are the steps for the "confront" sci-fi image.
    it took me about three days to get something correct, and i continued adding small details later on.
    the concept began as a very basic sketch on the wacom.

    i think these 12 steps speak for themselves, i'll just add little comments later on, probably at the end of this same day.

    thanks for giving us this insight

    i like how you start in shapes, not lines. also, the development from rough color-blocking-in to detailed painting is very interesting.

    I found this to be utterly amazing. I must've studied it for 30 minutes without moving my eyes from my monitor. You're quite an amazing talent, my man.

    It seems that all the great artists are using Painter around here. I really gotta get past it's initial frustrations. Your work inspires me to do exactly that.

    Couple of questions

    Great work Sparth...

    Just quickly, how long did it take you to do this..I dont recall you saying in the thread and what resolution/size canvas do you normally start with in PS or Painter? Is there a minimum required to obtain the sort of detail you need?

    Cheers

    :chug:

    TJ Verhagen: it's a pleasure. these things take a little bit of time to make, but it's always fun.

    gekitsu : that's what i like in the wacom and drawing tablet, the ability to make sketch paintings very easily. if i had to do line sketches only, i probably would have done it the traditionnal way. tx m8

    eggbeater: heh, glad you like it. well it's not painter, it's photoshop 5.5
    gonna wander into painter too, looks like i'm late already.

    Manta_Ray: the original sketch can be done in 15 minutes. i usually make a sketch that i resize if i'm happy with it. but it depends.
    i think this image was 30 centimeters wide, at 300 or 250 dpi. i sometimes work at 200, but it doesn't happen often.
    i passed quite some time on this painting, i started on a friday, and finished the whole thing on sunday. i remember having passed all my sunday on it, from 9 am to 10 pm, non stop. once again it's very rare, i usually do not pass more than 6 or 8 hours on a painting. i should probably add more time. :s

    thanks for you kind words.

    Wow wow wow wow wow wow...

    Sparth, thanks so much for taking the time out to post this. It is infinitely helpful and fascinating and I too will be studying this thread for months to come. Picking apart an artist's method is so helpful, and one of your talent makes it fun as well.

    Thanks so much!

    Oh wow this is great...thanks so much Sparth. Like my brother said...I too will be coming back to this for months analyzing how you do things...that took a lot of extra time for you to export all those images...thanks so much for doing that. I love the painting too...the blue video screen things are awesome...wow...they really look flourescent-like...that is awesome. Great work.

    Ok I am pretty new but not to green- I pulled up PS 5.5 and started with a new canvas at 30 cm by 30 cm at 250 dpi- which started me out on a 25mb file- is this the correct way to do it- and when I am finished trying to do create a picture as yours how much do you shrink it to bring all the detail in- thanks for the huge help- I love these tutorials- Brad
