early steps in RandomVeus by theCHAMBA early steps in RandomVeus by theCHAMBA
WIDE IMAGE

anyway here's some of the early steps that took place to create the RandomVeus piece.

1st pic: the A4 size-paper RAWSCAN. As you can see i left space both on the top and bottom of the actual piece. For many of those who've asked if I draw the characters on Seperate pieces of paper and put it together in Photoshop, the answer is No. They're all drawn on the single sheet.

2nd pic: the Colour Holds, so to speak. These are a set colour i use that're on a layer setting of linear burn above the colour layers.

3rd pic: Outlines and Extras. this is a slightly tedious but important part to how i go about. I outline around characters and add blacklines on specific areas such as mouths and eyes.

4th pic: Colour flats and Extras. the most boring and time-eating thing to do. But i guess with good base colours, the end result willonly be that much solid looking.


and yeh.. that's it for the early stages.. i won't go and show the highlighting and the backgrounds etc.. I've already done this whole process-showing thing w/ one of the Sinbad pages a month or two back. but yeh.. figured i'd show this.

You did the Lineart on Photoshop or did you just adjust the levels?

Nice technique, you style is very good....what is amazing or a little weird in a way is how you dont have much of lines with weight...all the figures have the same thin line on them....there are no planes what so ever,keep up the great work.

hey bro, thanks for the tutorial. I need to know how that 2nd step is supposed to work though. if you could provide some clarification that would rock, cause I always love to learn new methods.
Reply
:iconthechamba:
theCHAMBA Featured By Owner May 23, 2007
the coloured lines when set as a linear burn above the flats creates a darker line of the flat colour.

i think if you really read what i had written in the description over and over, it should make more sense as to what i do.

but otherwise, this is all i'll say about that step.

"2nd pic: the Colour Holds, so to speak. These are a set colour i use that're on a layer setting of linear burn above the colour layers."

im wondering exactly what this means? dis you set a blue layer on top of your lines and make the layer mode "linear burn?" this seems to clean up those lines quite a bit
