Like I said yesterday here is the making of process for Red Riding Hood.
Step 1 - create a new file in a more horizontal setup and divide the screen in four parts. Then I take this badass Barontieri brush to sketch out my initial concepts. I pick one.
Here's the winner.
Step 2 - I start to define shapes and forms with the same sketch brush. Here is where I get lost in defining things and sometimes forget to save the steps. It's easy to get lost in the process.
Step 3 - More definition. Things are coming into place. I work in a small scale (25%) to give me an idea of how the whole piece is coming out and not get distracted by details.
Step 4 - I create a new layer and set it to OVERLAY to add color. I try to define how the final colors would be and just add warmer and cooler colors when needed in new layers later on.
Step 5 - I flatten all the layers and focus on defining the ground and all the other details of the scene.
Last step - I add a texture to the drawing and continue drawing on top. I add a rock texture to the ground to make it pop a bit more. I add an adjustment layer to work out the color balance and levels. The final image is found on the last post. Hope this was useful.
