Work flow????

I throught I would be nice and write up a overview of how I plan to work and then post how good I stick to it.

I plan to start painting on friday.

First it's all abit old school, I draw up the image on paper, then scan it in and clean it up, ready for paint.

Then a new layer or two and I start to block up everything in black and white or I should say grey scale. I use a standed brush with shape dynamics etc... and also smooth and pen pressure, just play with it till it fit's what you need. I also mark out the light source. This is also a good time to work in any kind of texture.

When I'm happy with the level of realism, I start the colour layers. Set at multiply and op 60-70%. Smudge and efforts.
Then the highlight's, I still work on the same layer but sometime's it call's for a new one set at op 90% and or overlay.

That's roughly how I work. Hope to post more later.

Good luck all!!^^

My most used brush?....

Hard round brush, first 19 size brush in the default set.
Altered like so:

Opacity: 100%
Flow: 100%
Spacing: 10%
Smoothig: checked

I play around with the Other dynamics from time to time but mostly same are checked but set at 0%. Make sure pen pressure is working, play's up on me all the time.

Yeah, the Art Noveau look is great

I have one question...you're going to give it a mid night look,
or some light of the day?

AHHhhhh.... sickness!

Been sick for the last 3 days or so.
Just really starting to get back into it today. I hope to post up same new pics soon. Everyone's work seem's to be coming along, great even, wish I could say the same for my own.

Not sure about the colour, thinking of going for a dawn/twilight like colour range, but really not so sure. May just post some colour ways here and base the final on all your feedback?.

Thanks for all your comments, and hope to have something worth seeing in the next day or so!! Good luck
