fence woman see
the process of this image below
This is a photoshop illustration I made for my portfolio. I wanted to create something with more focus on the background than the character. Although the image isn't overly complex it was fun to play with depth and perspective although the fenceposts were a bit confusing when they got really small.
This image started from a scanned pencil thumbnail, which I scanned in and blocked in the basic colours in photoshop.
The next part of the process consisted of mainly neatening edges, adding detail in blocks. Because I painted it all on one layer I added shading on seperate layers using masks for each colour. Then used curves to make the colours warmer to make the final illustration. If you want to see any of the steps bigger you can click on them.
That's all for today. See you again soon.
