So I spent most of the day just doing this piece, well not most of it, but good chunk. Anyway, since this was a new process i just tried out... I'll share.
First I skecthed it in Alias Scetchbook. With the pencil tool only.
Then I took it into photoshop and added some color, using layers underneath the pencil. This was just to get a feeling for the lighting and color world. I did it in photoshop since I'm just more used to coloring using that program.
Then I took it into illustrator for a cleaned up refined look, and traced my main blocks of color. Trying to keep the levels of shades down to a minimum.
After that i took it into photoshop one more time and tried out smearing the hard vector shades into a more smooth airbrushed feeling with the smear tool using a customized brush. And then I airbrushed and tinted some parts of the image to make it more alive. Though that part is a bit lost in the jpg. Which is the final image you see on the top... Hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.
