Now Playing Tracks

andre again, now with process!

andredefreitas:

So, here’s a quick breakdown of what my illustration process is. 

1. I start on a piece of paper, and start doodling around until I get a basic idea of what I want. 

2. I scan my drawing and bring it into photoshop to clean up the lineart. 

3. I cry for like a half hour until I finally come up with the color palette I’ll use. My brain is pretty much monochromatic. This is the part I hate most. 

3.2. Once I find the ideal color palette, I get distracted with anything. For example, today I watched Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie from the 90’s. 

4. I finally go back to my drawing and paint basic shadows. 

5. I add basic highlights.

5.1. I get distracted again. (Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3)

6. I paint the final details.

7. I add textures and other details. 

Time: 2-4 hours.
