In this video I continue to add form to the characters. I tend to add form by painting light and shadow areas. However, for the Schoolism Assignment I’ve been given a challenge of adding light and shadow digitally after painting everything without a definite source of light. You may note me deviate from this somewhat, but by the end of the video I think I have finally reached the lighting stage of the project.
In the second half of the video you can also watch as I paint Lord Malachite’s dragon eyes. I had quite the trouble blending the surfaces until I decided to mask the area and use a soft edge brush.
As always, if you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me.
Until next time…
