Dynamic Rendering Tutorial - BETA by James-S-Flynn Dynamic Rendering Tutorial - BETA by James-S-Flynn
WARNING: ENORMOUS FILE.

This took me much longer than I originally anticipated. I have been working on this on and off for the last week. Since it's in beta, please be gentle. I'm submitting it off into the wild to see if any of the steps don't make sense, if anything needs visual clarification and, generally, to see if it's helpful.

This is my first tutorial. Since rendering and colour were the most popular answers to my "what should I make a tutorial on", I've made this.

If you like it, please share it with your friends. I hope it helps. :)

Love this J! When we're not crunching for PostMortem, I'd love to geek out at you about art stuff.

Hahaha, it really is crunch this week huh?

I've got Gerry, the Secretary and Ophelia sketched out.

We need to talk about Death! As in, the character concept! I'm still not certain how Jakub wants to handle them. I'm thinking an androgynous individual that anyone can kind of identify with - maybe even making them the most FORGETTABLE looking protagonist in the history of ever?

Thanks for uploading this! Excellent tutorial, easy to understand. Starting with complimentary colors, in particular, was not something I would have thought of myself :D

Thanks for your kind words! I've learned a little more about shading since I developed this so I'm going to go back and re-draw some of the images when I get some free time. I'm glad it's useful for you. :D

Wow, this is fantastic. I've been wanting to step up my shading my using multiply and this will come in handy!

I'm glad you can use it! What I also used to do is do a greyscale sketch and paint in values, and then use overlay and such to "colour" the art to pick my colours. Then I'd paint forward from there. I found that this method has a more dynamic range in value and hue.

Best of luck to you in your arty things. <3
