These are so helpful; please, do continue with them. 8D

Your process looks so efficient; don't have to worry about cleanliness until like the very last step. And the way you lay down darks and build value from there is really neat; gonna give that a try.

Yeah, dark-light is a great way of working I find, it really allows you to focus attention on bright areas at the end, I think—it's often surprising how much 'light' you can add while still using quite dark tones.

:D

You noted that you used Sketchbook Pro for the linework. What features does Sketchbook Pro have that make it better for linework than Photoshop, or Painter?

Well I can't say how it compares to painter since I don't use it, but I find it's smoother for drawing in than Photoshop is, and more like drawing with a pencil on paper.

you would like painter then; it has many premade brushes that simulate tradtional media very well and the the blending is way better than photoshops.

Question, do you use the line work as only a guide for the coloring that comes afterwards and rely on color shading to solidify shape instead? I have a hard time seeing more black lines you did in sketchbook pro?

Awesome tutorial, hope to see more.

well since I've just drawn it it's usually pretty clear in my head where I'm going with it, so I keep the linework very dark, only having it just visible enough to see—on this I was actually turning off all the other layers quite a bit just to get a look at it properly. I did end up working pretty close to the linework, though, it's just rather difficult to tell since I started painting over it immediately.
(here's a bigger pic of the linework if you want) :D

If I may pose a little question... what role does the texture play that you added quite at the beginning? Nothing of it is imho visible in the final artwork?

Mr--Jack Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2009  Professional
haha; yeah, you've got a pretty good point there, the metal-texture's pretty overwhelmed almost immediately. I had another rocky sort of layer that I overlayed in 'color' mode that quickly added some nice variation, though...

It can sometimes be a handy part of the process (I think it works better if I don't use such tight linework over the top), and it doesn't hurt to add a bit of depth now and then :D
