This is a steampunk soldier digital painting in Gimp of Atonis Trogade, a Captain of the Suborean Guard and one of the characters from my digital comic project. I’m not sure how steampunky this is though, I’d love to know what you think.
Here was my process.
- I started with a very rough construction sketch:
2. Then I spent a fair amount of time on the line-work:
3. Then I blocked in the colours and used Gimp’s Perspective Tool to orientate the bronze logos as required (I did try the Cage Transform tool but this caused my logo to fragment for some reason):
4. Finally I finished off with the detailed shading making extensive use of the Lock Alpha Channel feature in Gimp.
