Lesson 4 in Concept Art Hacks
In this Lesson, Steve will start by analyzing the use of color in some of his favorite paintings. He will then take you through 3D preparation once again, this time with an eye for atmosphere, bounce light and general color, before moving into Photoshop. Because this final piece will be more complex, he will go through a two-part process: first blocking everything in with standard detail, then taking a critical eye to his work and further refining the painting.
Bring one of your sketches to a final colored illustration. Try to aim for a particular style, and use a photo reference that is close to your final color palette.
This time, Steve will start by setting up a 3D image using Modo and Octane, giving you tips on all different aspects of his 3D workflow. This will then be rendered and sent to Photoshop for a paintover. This Lesson also includes a special bonus painting in addition to the main piece, offering as many ideas as possible for how to implement this style in your own work.
