Initiation - Step by Step by nathie Initiation - Step by Step by nathie
I do not take requests for tutorials. Just saying, because everytime I load a how-to up the note inbox is filled with requests shortly afterwards. I do them when I want to and on the subject I chose. :) Ok, now that is said onwards to the important things:

I made a step-by step this time. Sometimes I need a reminder to make actually a screenshot. When I paint I get often into a 'zone' where I forget everything around me, so if some steps are pretty much apart, this is because I forgot to save a screenshot.

For references I used textures and poses from my own stock, shot by me. I used about 10 references for hands, lightning, background from a wooden chapel, texture, feet, pose. The wooden floor was the only thing I matte painted with a texture because I got lazy and wanted to finish it.

Done entirely in Photoshop with a Wacom, some few custom brushes by Falln-Stock and David Nagel. The original artwork is here:

Amazing! 
You are a true master of the kind of art I have long aspired to, but have rarely reigned myself in long enough to practice until VERY recently.  Plus, you know the software I wish to learn to use.  If only you were my mentor in this.

Darf ich fragen, wie Du Deine Ebenen organisierst? Nimmst Du Extra-Ebenen für die Details? Und wie bekommst Du die Übergänge zwischen den Farbflächen hin? Nach Verschmieren sieht es jedenfalls nicht aus. Vermutlich sollte ich für die nächsten paar Jahre erst einmal Billiardkugeln und Rollenspielerwürfel malen ... (*gähn*) Das mit den Ebenen, Werkzeugen und verschiedenen Einstellungen finde ich mindestens so verwirrend wie auszutüfteln, wo Licht- und Schatteneffekte bei anderen Objekten als Bällen, Würfeln oder Weingläsern hinkommen, zumal jeder was anderes sagt und die Tutorials sich teilweise widersprechen. (Mit Abwedeln/Nachbelichten, Verschmieren und der Pipette in GIMP komme ich jedenfalls nicht weit.) Sagen wir's mal so: sollte ich jemals einen Charakter mit üblem Sonnenbrand, massiven blauen Flecken oder giftgrüner Haut brauchen, weiß ich jetzt wie das geht. :lol:

Ja klar. :) Also, ich benutze fas nie Ebenen. Die verwirren mich auch immer, weil ich auf traditionellen Medien die ja auch nicht habe. Ich pinsele alles auf einer und deshalb fügt sich das auch nahtlos ein. Den Verschmierer nutze ich so gut wie nie, außer ich zeichne Federn. XD
Ich benutze in Photoshop auch nur die Brushes. Ich muß auch sagen, ich habe noch nie ein Tutorial von anderen gelesen, aber ich denke, viele Wege führen nach Rom.
Meine ersten digitalen Versuche sahen aber auch so aus. XD Abwedeln/Nachbelichten können sehr viel kaputt machen. :/

Danke für die Antwort. Ich sammele halt generell alles an Tips, Tricks und Methoden, was es so gibt. Um halt zu gucken und zu vergleichen. Wird wohl aber doch auf weitere Experimente hinauslaufen. Irgendwann klappt das dann auch. Ist ja nicht so, dass ich bis Ende des Monats perfekt sein müsste.
Vielen Dank nochmal jedenfalls.
