First off, Long time lurker, first time poster but this isnt the place for that so ill get right to it.
Currently im working on some portfolio work (graduated with a games design degree last year) im not a novice artist but im still learning, albeit slowly.
There are various aspects to art i need to improve on and im very confident in how im plannign to do that. However, workflow in photoshop stumps me completely, i usually end up with a gazliion layers because i make mistakes
the piece im working on at the moment is a 2000pix x 4000pix (width/height respectively) and im planning on it being a vivid painting of a King or someone or royalty addressing a crowd in a church or castle (medeval setting) with an assassin dropping from above, Ive got the flow of shapes and how i want the scene constructed set out, but i just cant figure out how to start the darn thing!
do i start with the people? do i start with the structure? do i start with colour? or do i start with the assassin? Ive watched alot of videos from gnomon workshop about concept art but i just cant nail down an efficient way to start painting.
Thankyou in advance for any help!
(ps: im trying out a way of forcing myself to use better brushes so as to stop my work looking 'digital'...ive deleted all the photoshop defaults and made my own! hopefulyl it works )
