Well, here's an actual finished illustration! ( Ya, I know! )
I wanted to put a simple step by step process on how I actually got this done.
What started out as a simple rough sketch of Batman turned out to be something a bit more.
All this process was done without lifting a pencil. I actually started off just playing around with Corel Painter X. First, I just doodled around with different brush strokes and then decided to just sketch up something. Next thing you know, I was sketching up Batman. Why? Just thought that Batman would be cool to draw.
- Step 1: I was just making a super rough sketch, then I decided to just take it a bit further.
- Step 2: After a little tweeking here and there with how Batman was going to pose I decided to go even further and did the rest of the work in Photoshop CS3.
- Step 3: Did more revisions on how Batman was going to look and started to add more details around his cape and tweeked him a bit.
- Step 4 (FINAL): After several hours of putting and taking out things, this was the end result. Final pose and look was done in Painter and the rest was done in Photoshop.
This year I really wanted to put more illustration work out, and this is just the beginning.
