So for the last couple of days I’ve been working on the environment’background for a commissioned image that’s based on the Warhammer 40K universe. Today, I’ll be coloring it.
Anyway, I just wanted to share the process so far.
Here’s the image as it looks on the drawing table. The sketch is done with a red pencil and then the actual pencil is traced on top of that. Afterwards the image is scanned (this one needed to be scanned in three parts) and put back together again in Photoshop.
This is what the image looks like once it’s cleaned. The red lines are eliminating by manipulating the color channels and then all it requires is a little bit of retouching here and there.
We’ll be coloring this later today in a live broadcast through Ustream, so stay tuned in case you want to check it out. I’ll add the link to the broadcast to this post once we’re started.
