After some tips on silhouettes from a friend on Crimson Daggers, I’m trying to include silhouettes in my workflow for painting the human figure.
My current process is this:
2. Silhouette with 100% opacity brush.
3. Shadow shapes with 100% opacity bursh.
4. Full light shapes with 100% opacity brush.
5. Blending with pressure opacity brush (added some highlights and reflected light here for fun).
The research I have done to date on creating and self publishing digital comics (specifically eComics) has led me to put together a Digital Comics Workflow which I have defined here. I will keep this workflow updated to reflect my latest learnings as I stumble along the way.
I’m a great one for coming up with ideas but then never finishing them. So I’m throwing down the gauntlet to myself this year *KA-TUK* (that’s what a gauntlet throwdown sounds like) with my so called Project Code: ADC-1.
Note: ADC stands for Artloader Digital Comic – my attempt to sound mysterious (I’m a bit nutty – what can I say? And no – I’ve not been drinking).
In order to give myself a bit of structure as I create my digital comics, I have put together a little Digital Comics Workflow. It’s always good to have a defined process – whether you follow it or not is another matter.
