customlaptops asked: I love your art! How do you construct the anatomy/settings/perspective in your drawings?
First, thank you I appreciate those kind words. :)
About > anatomy > hum … I’m sorry but I’m not the best drawer to talk about anatomy haha so I’ll let a fog on this question ^^
>settings > you mean “how I make a pics from A to Z ?”
hummm, first I’m having a coffee with some milk, then I’m making my sketch trying to pay attention to the values white/black/grey > tryin’ to have a good alchemy that the sketch may be “balanced” (you’ll notice that I’m speaking generally making a true step by step would be too long, pardon me :)) then when I’m satisfied with the sketch i’m scanning it in 600 dpi (that’s a detail but if you want to know, now … you know haha)
On photoshop I’m having like 6 layers (more or less) >
1 sketch (which I’m adding more contrast with the “level tool”)
2 all the colors delimited by the polygonal lasso (trying to have evident contrast like blue/orange green/red purple/yellow etc etc)
5 a little shade.
6 a color product (like the yellow tone that may add some “realism” to the “colour mood”
… something like that.
>perspective > hum big question, My most honest answer would be
> “it’s just an illusion” (yeah like the band “Imagination”)
Horizon line, perspective line, vanishing point… may be useful but boring for composition
I’m taking care about the height and the width, playing with circles and ovals, it’s all about tricks > depth, light, dark. etc…
I could be more prolix, but it’ll be enough for today.
hope it will help a bit.
Thanks and take care.
