Drawing for Myself – Painting the MNSA Building
It’s not quite done yet, but it’s coming along. Trying out some of the painting techniques Brandon Dayton showed me during his demo on Comics Are Great! 41. The sky and mountains are each painted on their own layer. I used a variety of chalk brushes built into Photoshop.
Here comes the neat part. With a few Adjustment Layers, I’m able to take this setting into the middle of the night without having to change any art (well, I did add some stars):
Same art, just used some Hue/Saturation Adjustment Layers with Clipping Masks on each element. I also touched up the masks on the Adjustment Layers with the Chalk Brushes a bit.
With this major set piece almost done, I’m poised to start penciling the comic! I’ll share the progress and process as I push through it.
