wow… all of this is amazingly fabulous.>>735>>708>>703
could you try to explain the process in which you go through a piece like >>700
? the style and the color and the definition and just… like… it boggles my mind. i just, can't wrap my head around what the process could have been.
Layers and layers. I have a huge collection of Photoshop texture brushes and I used a lot of them for this. Especially my ink splatter brushes.
The process was mostly back and forth between using the color I wanted and then drawing over it lightly with more black and repeat. Or using a texture brush as an eraser.
And that teal texture is actually a photoshopped picture of dirty concrete that I had taken earlier that day. Plus more ink spatter brush.
I'd love to watch you draw some time. it really is amazing what you're doing here, and i wish i had half the knowledge and experience you do!
i have NO idea how to get started on doing pieces like this… how did you work your way up here?
It's good to think of drawing in terms of background, mid-ground, and foreground. And then sketching out a concept of what you want.
I started in black and white, and had fun with layering. I just wanted to mess around with the bunch of texture brushes I have in photoshop (no seriously, my computer lags when I open up my brush window).
I just kept trying to fix whatever problems I saw and kept drawing texture brushes white over black over white (and repeat) until I was happy with what I saw.
Then I resized it and added another ring around it.
Eventually I merged everything down into one layer and made it a Multiply layer. I colored underneath that layer with a big brush… and then I drew some final touches above the merged layer. (Plus a cropped color-altered photo of concrete I threw in the background).
I'm sorry that I'm not a better teacher. D: I wish I could help more… there just wasn't that much thought process behind making this.
My best advice would be to play around with whatever art medium you have for a while and find the best method that makes you happy. This drawing was an experiment… so if you want to attempt something like this then have at it and don't worry about it being 1000% perfect.
Also, I could send you the Photoshop file of the final version with separate layers if you think that would help.
And sorry for the delayed response.
SHIT YEAH MY BUDDY KINO
