Hi guys,
some people asked me how i am drawing my pictures- so i decided to record a little video to show my work process -

as you can see it is the german version of photoshop - so i will explain some of the things i did while i was drawing this piece so everyone can understand it :).

- i started with a simple sketch and cleaned it up a little bit (flipping the canvas is a good way to see the mistakes you made- that way you have some kind of different view on the picture and can find them more easily)

- i created a new layer over my sketch layer and set the mode to ---multiply---. here i did the flat colours and painted all over the picture

- after that i created an ---adjustment layer--- ( layers>adjustment layer>curves) and played around with the settings so i got a darker picture. now i filled the adjustment layer with a black colour and started painting on it -- and there we have shadows :D

- i added a new curves adjustment layer and set the mode to ---screen--- and worked just like the layer before- fill it with black and paint on it with white

- when im satisfied with the lights and shadows I create a new layer on top of all the layers and start painting on top of it all - when im finished you almost wont see anything of the outlines :)

- i added a new adjustment layer on top of this one (you already know how this works now ;)) and lightened up the shadows a bit

- when im finished with that i do some final color corrections et voila :)

Wow das ist wirklich beeindruckend. Du benutzt allein zum Colorieren gerademal 2 Ebenen und den Rest mit Regler-Ebenen (eine Funktion, die ich so noch gar nicht kannte). Du benutzt hauptsächlich einen sehr breiten, waagerechten Pinsel - gibts den schon so in deiner Photoshop-Version oder hast du dir den selbst erstellt? Es ist leider nicht so deutlich, ob dieser Pinsel irgendwelche Eigenschaften, wie z.B. Verläufe, Härte usw. hat - kannst du darüber etwas erzählen?
Jedenfalls vielen Dank für diesen Einblick in deine Arbeitsweise, das war wirklich sehr lehrreich ;-)
Mach bitte weiter so, deine Werke sind spitze!
