Neytiri Walkthrough - BFW- by theCHAMBA Neytiri Walkthrough - BFW- by theCHAMBA
BIG FILE WARNING

So this is a walkthrough of the Neytiri piece I posted yersterday.


excuse the massive size of the file but yeah.

Basic Rundown:

1) Unlevelled Rawscan - Drawn on A4 size printer paper using 4H and HB leads. I took a bit of liberty with the Anatomy, but aimed to try and get her face looking close to how she looks in the film.

2) Lineart cleaned and levelled - this process like the remainder of the steps done in PSCS3 using an Intuos2.

3) Base colour flats applied - All I do is basically trace around her outline, then fill in the areas with certain colours. This process is tedious, but has to be done.

4) Additional details added - Longest part of the whole thing. The pattern on her skin detail was quite tasking.

5) Background is created - lots of playing around w/ palettes.

6) Character and Final background touches.

7 - 9) Added highlights, shades and tints to the figure - I find this stage the most fun.

10) Applied secondary lighting.

11) Applied blurs and such - added the twang of her Bow, and some basic focus and movement blurs.

12) Final view after the addition of my tag and adding a slight glow.

Complete.

Awesome work as always. I really enjoy the opportunity to see how you get these done, and I'm glad you do alot of walkthroughs, since it's cool to see your work start to finish on multiple pieces.

DOPE!
