OppidumBeyond Demo by TomScholes OppidumBeyond Demo by TomScholes
Thought I would upload a layered PSD for those interested. It contains the steps from beginning to end, though I've combined a few layers and reduced the resolution by 2/3rds in order to keep file size reasonable. Click download in the top right or click here: [link]

Please let me know what you think !

This image can be drawn for half an hour in a single layer. I feel sorry for people who choose a method of layered paint with copy/paste, copy/paste, copy/paste, copy/paste, mask, mask, copy/paste, etc.

You might be less bitter with an open mind :) Maybe you should explore more, enjoy art and complain less about random things on the internet that bother you.

Thanks so much for sharing this Tom. Really fantastic stuff as always!! It would be much appreciated if you could elaborate a little on the 'compositional balance' stage of the image. What sort of checks are you making and what is your mental process. Thanks again sir! :highfive:

Love your work. For some time I thought it was more about imposing textures over 3D spaces, but it is really PS based: amazing!

I have a hard time working with 3D and usually try and cover it up immediately if I have to use it for production work. I don't really ever use it for personal pieces :)

Your work is an inspiration and seeing how it's made is utterly fascinating. Particularly love seeing how you create that feeling of distance and build up two-dimensional shapes until they have three-dimensional presence. Thank you so much for sharing your process with us.

What brushes do you use? Your own custom brushes or have you found some?
I'm still getting used to Photoshop, having moved from Corel painter 4! (yes 4! it was so grainy and horrible)
Reply
:icontomscholes:
TomScholes Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
For these last half dozen or so, I've used only two for 99% of the painting. A soft rounded rectangle and a soft round. If there's anything that looks more involved, it's probably a combination of clone stamping (with similar brushes) as well as just stroke application :)

Brushe's aren't nearly as important as the right shape, right color and right temperature :)

:iconashleykerins:
AshleyKerins Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Ah yes, thankyou very much! I agree, brushes are not as important as getting the other aspects right, but a more painterly brush can help prevent getting stuck on the tiny details. (A trap I always fall into!)

:icontomscholes:
TomScholes Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
I've done entire paintings with the most random of brushes for example.
If you are stuck in details, I suggest you paint the majority of your painting zoomed out to a degree to where you see the entire canvas :) I do all my paintings this way, but will at times select a portion to focus upon, copy it into a new canvas and treat it as it's own composition.

Anyhow, best of luck with your digital adventure !

:iconashleykerins:
AshleyKerins Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Ah, I could try that, to get a decent composition, temperature and all. Maybe as I become happier with it, I could allow myself to zoom in gradually to refine to a certain degree, rather than get right down to pixel level. It may be worth a shot!

Thankyou!
