::TRIAL DESIGN:: Backstage - Step by Step by Dopaprime ::TRIAL DESIGN:: Backstage - Step by Step by Dopaprime
Well...since some ppl asked me about how I paint, so...here is my semi-realism painting method. This is just a trial design of my OC Helios, I'm still experimenting to find the right look of him which fits with what I have in mind.

Final result:


Hope it gives you a little idea about how I do it.

That's a big jump from panel 2-3. Not that I'm complaining...the work is really brilliant.

How do you paint colour after already doing the black and white version? This is amazing work!

I dont really get how you got from frame 4 to frame 5. Did you shift things around with the blur tool or something? It just has a lot of subtle differences.

I love this :) I always think it's cool to see how people paint. I was wondering though, how do you go from the detailed black and white shading to color?

How did you go from black and white to color? Did you just have to go over it and use the black and white shading as guild lines or change the hue?

This looks great. I haven't done any semi-realistic digital painting yet. Is it pretty common to work up a full black and white "underpainting" (for lack of a better word, thanks to this "useless" old-school art degree! ;) ) before adding color?

I was gonna use this method but I couldn't find a way to make it work. This is a pretty nice way to make it work! But it's not as efficient on fabric or metal surfaces.

The lip ring is connected by a chain to the earring and not to his coat. =) But yeah, if someone yanked that chain...pain would ensue...big time.

Why do you do the third step? Just curious, as my biggest art block is the colouring stage so it'd be nice if I got some pointers, if you don't mind.

Seriously though, you should've just stopped at stage 3. I don't fancy at all how the lips turned out in the end. Sure, it's a matter of taste, and the final result is really well made and all, but I think that he'd be a lot more handsome if u had sticked to the original shape in the end ^^

warning!
this
is
not
a
joke!
carry
on
reading!
or
you
will
die,
even
if
you
only
looked
at
the
word
warning!


ONCE
THERE
WAS
A
LITTLE
GIRL
CALLED
CLARISSA,
SHE
WAS
10
YEARS
OLD
AND
SHE
LIVED
IN
A
MENTAL
HOSPITAL,
BEACUSE
SHE
KILLED
HER
MUM
AND
DAD.








SHE
GOT
SO
BAD
SHE
STARTED
TO
KILL
ALL
THE
STAFF
IN
THE
HOSPITAL
SO
THE
GOVERMENT
DECIDED
THAT
THE
BEST
IDEA
WAS
TO
GET
RID
OF
HER
SO
THEY
SET
UP
A
SPECIAL
ROOM
TO
KILL
HER,
AS
HUMANE
AS
POSSIBLE
BUT
IT
WENT
RONG
THE
MACHINE
THEY
WERE
USEING
WENT
WRONG.








AND
SHE
WAS
SAT
THERE
IN
AGONY
FOR
HOURS
UNTILL
SHE
FINALLY
DIED.








NOW
EVERY
WEEK
ON
THE
DAY
OF
HER
DEATH
SHE
RETURNS
TO THE
PERSON
THAT
READS
THIS
LETTER,
ON
A
MONDAY
NIGHT
AT
12:00
SHE
KREEPS
INTO
YOUR
ROOM
AND
KILLS
YOU,
BUT
SLOWLY
AND
PAINFULLY
SLOWLY
CUTTING
DIFFRENT
PARTS
OF
UR
BODY
THEN
WATCHES
YOU
BLEED
TO
DEATH
IF
YOU
DONT
SEND
THIS
TO
20
PEOPLE
BY
MIDNIGHT
SHELL
BE
COMEING
TO KILL
YOU!
SEND
IT
SO
SHE
HAS
ANOTHER
LOAD
OF
PEOPLE
TO
GET
AND
FORGETS
ABOUT
YOU
DONT
BELVE ME
HEY?

EXAMPLE
1:
JENNY
DIDNT BELIVE THIS AND DELETED IT WITHOUT EVEN READING THE WHOLE THING! A FEW DAYS LATER ON THE MONDAY NIGHT SHE WAS WOKEN UP BYE LOUDE FOOTSTEPS AND HEAVY BREETHING THERE WAS CLARISSA STANDING THERE WITH A HUGE KNIFE AND WELL JENNY IS HISTORY NOW.









EXAMPLE
2:
TOM
ONLY SENT IT TO 5 PEOPLE CUZ HE THOUGHT HED BE SAFE AND IT WAS PROBLY JUST A JOKE BUT OH HOW RONG WAS HE! HE DIED THE NEXT NIGHT ON MONDAY AND ILL TELL YA NOW IT WASNT PRETTY(JUST CUZ HE SENT FIVE HE DIDNT COMPLETE THE TASK)

EXAMPLE
3:
JOEANNA
SENT IT TO 19 PEOPLE SHE THOUGHT IT WAS CLOSE ENOUGH AND WOULD DO BUT SHE WAS WRONG SHE DIED THAT NIGHT ON A MONDAY AND ONCE AGAIN IT WASNT
