Very shallow depth of field is amazing.
The end is near .
I finished the clothing and the most horrible beard I ever did (needs a bit of tweaking but I'll do that when the hair is done), on the reference most on the right side of the face is just plain black but I was afraid this would be a tad boring so I made more of the beard visible, I'm also going to add some hair (knowing who it is now, it was easy to find some references showing his hair).
Normaly I'm not a big fan of changing references this much (you easily lose the realism) but i think I can get away with it this time
if you hadn't said you'd 'changed' the reference, nobody would be any the wiser. Stellar job as always Haasje.
Holy crap haasje your flying trough this one.
It's looking amazing. I am particularly intrigued with depth in the weave like material around his neck. It looks stunning (as does the rest of the piece but this element jumps out at me). Did you do this with one or two colors and then use transparents to push back the darker areas? Did you paint each individually or use erasing? It looks awesome.
Welcome back and Awesome piece,glad you didnt wear your fingers out...Oh and is it father christmas??.Dude the eyes are amazing
looking great already haasje.
It's all done with E'tax transparant black (efx). I didn't take a lot of pics but this might help a bit making clear how I did this.
1. I layed out the general pattern and the initial texture
2. With erasors (electrical, pencil, fiberglas) I picked out the highlights again and did some more texture work. After this I went in with paint again to get rid of the obvious erasor "marks" and fiddled some more texture where needed.
3. For the "shape shades" I just fogged them in and adjusted the light/dark where needed. As these were little squares I could get away with this without looking too much at how the checker pattern bended (our eye will cheat us and bend them with the light/dark), with larger checkers (flags) you will have to take care that the checkers benc with the shadows.
4. Patched up the highlights with erasors and blended the white highlights again after that iff they were in the darker areas where needed.
Top stuff buddy! Is this the new trans black?, looks a nice true black!
Ah now i see your earlier reply!
There is a new transparant black from E'tac ?(marissa I gues). That would be awesome, I realy don't like the erasability of the efx transparant black when it's put on in thicker layers (which you'll need to do to get to actual black)
Looks amazing HJ great tips too!
And we are done
Top job again , i also like the lighting on this, wow , that beard must have been a real pain ..
