「Tutorial」Strife | Photoshop Coloring Process HD



everyone I'm Chun and today which you can probably guess from the title of this video I'll be discussing about my process for the piece strength you guys have any questions feel free to ask them in the comments below first thing to go over is how important is to have a good foundation for the work my recent works I've placed more importance on my line work as the foundation of my works for the points in tips in this video can be applied to Kings as well as other art forms so to get started I like to create a rhythm my line works something that makes the I dance around an image but not so chaotic that there's a total lack of focus and some negative space such as the outer circle astha tires and the inner circle in the middle gives the eye a resting point from the hecticness within the piece I usually like to achieve this rhythm very beginning when I'm sketching typically I use simple recognizable shapes such as triangle squares in this case circles it's a foundational composition point for my images there I tend to gesture around ideas and for personal pieces I like to find a nice flow and just generally draw why I think books cool another important aspect in line work is contrast for this piece in order to contrast the long flowy hectic lines of the main figures the Tigers I used short trade lines cross hatching there are many ways an artwork can show up contrast such as light and dark warm and cold tones objects in space to name a few unfortunately I wasn't able to record audio in my line work I do plan on doing a separate video on the techniques and ways I draw my lines if anyone is interested also for those asking yes my line work work is done 100% in Photoshop now onto coloring I place my line works at the very top layer under the layer mode multiply I do this so I wouldn't have to worry about accidentally coloring over my lines or having it be merged my coloring layers I used the paint bucket tool to drop in a warm shade for my background as I want the piece to have a warm color scheme there like to work on back to front that is allowing the background elements first and putting those layers all the way at the top so I would have a much easier time when coloring the more intricate parts of the illustration this stage blocking in all of my shapes as well as establishing other relations between figures and elements I often use the lasso tool L my keyboard to block in my colors I do free-handed the spaces to intricate right now I'm deciding the tones I want to use by adjusting and experimenting with different views by way of the hue and saturation adjustment control you on the keyboard or the flames I planned on it being a flat saturated tone really stand out from the cell shading of the Tigers the red also contrasted nicely with the desaturation of the piece as I go ahead I like to use curve adjustment layers to further control my color scheme and contrast in order for a more balanced piece I also use brightness and contrast layers the same way these adjustment layers can be found at the bottom of your layer menus when you press the have circled circle icon to keep my eyes fresh I like to adjust opacity as well as turn on and off layers to see what kind of impact certain elements have or have not in the piece the thing that canvas horizontally is also a great way of giving a different perspective for your piece as I can shine a new light to things that have been overworked and things that haven't been worked enough for shading I tend to go with multiply or overlay layers I tend to contrast warm undertones with Co shading and vice versa or cell shading I generally use it in the asymmetrical flat brush that's able to rotate it gives me more freedom in my strokes an important aspect in shading is having a consistent light source for this piece it shows a top down and front lighting you a tool that really helps me in my process is the rotate tool our other keyboard is a great tool that minimizes the strain of drawing a difficult angle on a tablet as I go on I try to contrast the warm areas with coal shading and the cool areas with warm shading I airbrushed a warm light color on a colored dodge layer on top of my lines the lessen the harshness of the lines as well as lighten up the piece for my final touches like to add in textures to get away from a clean digital look and to emulate traditional media and that's it for my process on the piece strife I just want to thank everyone for all your support on my channel this is the first time I tried anything and I hope it wasn't too bad you guys would like to see more on this channel please like comment or subscribe also I do plan on doing a Q&A video so you have any questions leave a question below with the hashtag doing a thanks again to everyone for tuning in to this channel and to my streams you
