Do you know Cosplay? Means when people customize themself as their favourite character from a Video Game, Anime, Manga, Movie, Mythology and so on. One of my friends, is also a cosplayer. She does cosplay for a long time and her costumes are great! Recently she cosplayed Bulma from Dragonball and at the moment I saw the pictures, I knew I’m gonna paint this!
For this painting I tried a new workflow or process for lightning and shadows. I used a layer with basecolors, one with ambient occlusion, one multiply layer for the shadows and some more layers for little adjustments. Oh and dont forget the background layer! 🙂
For a better understanding of my attempt, let us have look at the layers.
First every layer for it’s own
Let’s assemble everything 🙂
You can also watch the Process!
You know what is also great, I pressed the record button BEFORE I started the painting. So you can watch the whole process in time lapse! YEAH!
