These are great! I love all these drawings and stuff on the forums everyone is so good! Great job on these!
Oh, I probably should. I made it for an event on RMN, but maybe I'll get to starting up my own resource thread and art shop soon, it sounds like fun XDAre these available for others to use? If so, you need to post those in a resource thread. They turned out really awesome.
Wooow!! So awesome!! Must be lucky to be you!! >.< Wish ill be able to meet them too! xD@NH97:
Hahahahaha! Thanks, man! Just 3 days ago some guys from Bandai Namco visited my school, including the producer Hideo Baba and the Art Director of Tales of Vesperia, Minoru Iwamoto.
Iwamoto talked about his practice and journey up to become an artist, and then an art director for Tales.
After the talk I was pretty inspired, so I thought to try a design similar to the Tales style. An attempt, anyway XD
The color process... I think it went something like...
Sketch > Lineart > Base Color >
A layer for light shadows, so I can kind of mark out the shadows and figure out my lighting on the fly >
A layer where I put in some darker shadows to get it accurate...r >
A layer where I... fixed all the parts where the shadows crossed the lines >
Overlay layer to get that orangey mood >
Another layer where I blended the overlayed shadows here and there >
Screen layer to get them highlights >
Color Burn layer for the last bit of shadow to add a small touch of contrast here and there like the glove and shoulder.
Before, I used to go with a Lineart > Base Color > Multiply > Screen > Overlay (sometimes Linear Dodge and Color Burn) method but recently I've been trying out blending a lot to replace my Multiply layers because you get a lot more... textured shadows and nicer colors. It's kind of the reason why the Vampire Bat monster Girl and the Plant monster girl look so different XDDD
@nio kasgami: It's only US$15 now, you should totally get it!
It's a habit from when I first started, I guess. I didn't know anything about lighting then, so the only concern was getting the characters' colors right and the shadows of the clothes and whatnot. Eventually I learned how to create lighting and mood, and it was just kind of tacked on on top of the method I already use by using Overlay and Screen layers.Wooow!! So awesome!! Must be lucky to be you!! >.< Wish ill be able to meet them too! xD
Ahhh, i thought you start with full orange base colour ._." and put the shading there then put the overlay layer to change the color.....haha
Why did you use multiply layer? Isn't much more easier if you put the upper layer with clipping? Im really intrigued with this methoddd xD Teach meee
