part 3, Building from a wreck
It's a personal series for me.
Well here's the work in progress
early on it's a bit messy, very crude lines, but I'm expecting this to be a difficult piece, because there is so much geometry to color in.
again started coloring my main subject, started with the darkest tone instead of the color I laid out on the flats.
then working on the cat head
it's still very crude, but it's all about moving myself from object to object. Getting use to the terrain and getting a feel how I want the colors to shape out.
this looks like a drastic jump, but really not as much, just basic shadows to again get the feeling. In fact there are lots of holes in there, that I had to come in later and close them up because they were way too pronounced.
changing the shading on the rat's body because now I understand how the lighting is going to work
Color dodge was used on the lights, a duplicated layer with lower opacity helps to make it brighter, but there's a balance because the center gets intensifies and the outer edge fades according.
