Ms Marvel Steps 12 + 13 by davidyardin Ms Marvel Steps 12 + 13 by davidyardin
Steps 12. Clouds Final & 13. Final

Putting the foreground and background clouds together, I'm just about finished with the piece. The final thing to add was the bright light source. I'm not generally a fan of the standard Photoshop lens flares (I prefer to make my own if I'm going to use a flare effect), but in this case I think the stock standard flare worked out all right, and really amped up the brighness that I wanted from the light source (plus those little circle effects look cool 8-) ).

This is absolutely amazing and amazingly helpful.

So you seriously do you lineart/inking by traditional ink and then scan and color in photoshop!? I've tried that before, but I can always see my colors through my lines...

Thanks. Yes I ink traditionally and scan it in to colour in Photoshop.

If you have your lineart layer on top, with the layer mode set to multiply, or better yet have a b&w bitmap of your lineart (with the white part selected then deleted, so you just have the black lineart), you shouldn't have a problem doing your colours on a seperate layer underneath.

I have done the multiply thing before, but I will have to try that bitmap thing. It sound interesting.

I'll keep playing around with it, and thank you for helping me out ^^

Yeah it's a lot easier to do colour holds on the lineart, if it's bitmapped first, and not on a multiply layer.

hmm...okay. I tried it the other day, but couldn't make heads or tales of it either. I've also been playing with a mix of posterize + cutout filters onto the lineart then multiplying the layer. I think one of the main issues was that i draw so small that even in a 01 Micron the lineart is thick ^^;

Thanks again for putting up with all my questions :D

sorry but I think Step 12 is a little bit better than the final version :)
There's a bit too much light in Step 13
Reply
:icondavidyardin:
davidyardin Featured By Owner May 21, 2009  Professional
Yeah I could have stopped at 12, but I was aiming for that bright light though.

Very very informative. Nice to see a play by play from an artist whose work I actually know.

Though now I'm gonna be going over some of the covers you've done and trying to reverse engineer them and figure them out :P

Glad it was informative.

I haven't coloured any of my covers yet though (only thumbnails), so you'll be reverse engineering someone else's work. ;)
