Your work reminds me every time you post new work how far behind the times I am and what can be done with computers. awsome work! You sell any books to get me down the right path, I belive you said all you use is PS5 and wacom tab ?
It's definitely interesting to see your process of building from greyscale to colour before adding the final lighting (and the final background). Kinda similar to my way of working too but I'm slower haha (coz I sometimes need to take a step back to re-tweak the tonal levels and all that....)
Thanks for sharing this! I looked forward to more learning processes like this one!
wow its like the whole structure changed between 2 and 3... do you do that alot? must be tiring..
Anyway great process, if only there's a video process, i'd definitely watch and recommend it. TBH this is my first time seeing this kind of process (grayscale -> flat colour -> touchups etc). I'll try it one day, thanks!
I love seeing steps like this that include the "dead layer/greyscale layer". It's like..the Flemish technique for the digital age lol. I find it silly when people say it's cheating. Who cares if the end result is good?
I've been trying to get the hang of working like this because I seem to get the overall piece down faster and with better values. I hope to eventually be this good at it as well!
I really wanted to see the process between stage 4 to 5, I did greyscale many time but I think I still have problem whenever I put color on multiply layer...idk, don't tell me no 5 is raw color because it's looks good already!
Step 5 it was just flat color,i use Layer blender "Color" to it,just make one layer on top of layer finish grey scale,you'll see the resold like in step 5,and about atmosphere step 5 was gone,i was just deactivate the layer,after you've done with the color flat,and activate layer Atmosphere again and use hue-saturate option to make it colored,Cause i don't use method "multiply" for coloring...
