This is a steampunk helmet digital painting done in Gimp.  It is the Standard Issue Suborean Guard Combat Helmet as worn by Sylen Benevolen and Atonis Trogade from my digital comic project.

I experimented again with a different art process which I will try to describe below.

  1. Sketched out some rough ideas:

  2. In Blender I modelled a quick 3D mesh of my idea, making sure that when I rendered it I activated the Wireframe Modifier as this would help me with perspective work later on:

  3. I imported a render of the 3D model from Blender into Gimp and started working in 2D.  I used Gimp’s Paths tool to construct various selection areas so that I could start blocking in colours:

  4. Once I’d constructed my selection areas, I used Gimp’s Bucket Fill tool:

  5. I used more selection paths to do the shading:

  6. I then imported the Suborean Emblem and used the Perspective Tool to orientate it on the side of the helmet:

  7. More shading and adding reflections on the lenses:

  8. Finally and added some scuffs and scratches:
