Fighter PSD by Zatransis Fighter PSD by Zatransis
Hey gang!

I know I've toned down my interaction here on DA. Sorry about that. Baby + working on new book + work = No time for extra stuff. To make it up to you, here is a reduced size PSD of my "fighter" piece so you can pull it apart and see how I work. It's 1000 px tall and my actual working canvas was 5500 px. Otherwise, all the other elements of the file are where I left them. Hit Download on the right to get the file.

Hope this makes us square.

Peace!

M!

PS. If you have any questions about the PSD feel free to ask them here.

Thanks for answering my previous questions.

Right now I start with lines, add flat colors and then add highlights/shadows.

Starting with darks, how do you Identify which dark color will look GOOD when you add highlights on top of it?

I use mostly use the LAB color slider nowadays as, as you get darker you get more saturated, and lighter less. I suppose that could be ONE way, but I'd love to hear you theory on it.

Shit. It didn't represent what I typed accurately. It would be like this.

Identifying the best dark color comes with practice. You can see I keep everything separate, too, so I never back myself into a corner. I can adjust it at any time.

Something as blanket statement as "Darker more saturated, lighter less" actually betrays the way colors work. Different surfaces have different level of luminosity and react to light differently. A better universal way to think about it is like a crescent.

Lighter

Darker More saturated

Though, even that is too general.

Wow! I counted exactly 100 layers (101 if you count the background!). lol Dang! That's awesome that you've kept them separated like that so we can break it down and see almost exactly what you did! Awesome! :D Thanks, M!

:iconzatransis:
Zatransis Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Haha... only 100?

I kept them separate not only so people can review it but that's how I work all the time. You never know when you have to edit something. Having it organized and separate saves you a lot of time.

Psh, I bet he's only going to be a fighter long enough to get the feats before multiclassing into something better. SUNSHINE PATRIOT!

Ack, I need to lay off the sourcebooks. Great coloration! Also, interesting proportions on the bicept(s). I can never seem to pull that sort of thing off without it looking completely wonky.
