Step by Step: Movie

Day 11 was Movie, which gave me a perfect opportunity to draw my favourite characters: Harry, Ron and Hermione!

1. Basic composition in blue values. As a brush I used a basic, rough textured one for a painterly feel to it.

2. Defined facial characteristics.

3. Added a layer, set layer option to soft layer (overlay works as well) and defined my colour palette.

4. Up the vibrance, add a texture, use color dodge and keep drawing!

5. Last changes to background and never, ever forget to add a watermark.

Step by Step: Clown

Evening cuties!

Here is a quick two step process of Day 9 of October: Clown! It explains what I do when a piece is nearly finished.

1. Below you can see the nearly finished painting. But it still needed some more contrast and vibrance to make it ‘pop’ more.clown1

2. So I added two textures, set them to Lighten and erased some bits here and there. I also altered the contrasts, made her lollipop bigger and more blurred and added some details!

Step by step: Decay

Day 5 of October is Decay!

Below I show you a couple of steps on how to make an artwork more vibrant and dynamic. If you wish to view more detailed tutorials, click here: Original & Composition – Texture tutorial

1. First I searched for some inspiration, so I just put ‘decay’ in the Pinterest search bar and stumbled upon this gorgous stone picture with such vivid colours.

2. Started out with a basic drawing.

3. Her sigarette was going to be a focal point of warm light, so I already layed down those highlights.

4. I then added all the smoke around her and made good use of the color dodge tool to highlight some areas more!

5. Decay

And that is it! Let me know what you think.
