Comic Con Spaceship Fun

July 17, 2012 — 4 Comments


So I was honored to be in the Wacom booth again this year at Comic con representing Painter and Wacom both. I demonstrated the new 24HD touch monitor along with Painter 12.2 and man it was amazing. You can pan, zoom and rotate your page all at the same time. As I sketch I am able to turn the page with my fingers just like an Ipad and makes it really quick for the work flow. So this ship is one of three ships I completed while I was there. I did spend a little time at home refining a few things and adding more details. I completed the whole thing in Painter 12.2. I only used 3 brushes total to complete the ship. The brushes I used were the 2b pencil, Thick and Thin Pen and the Glow brush at the end to create some hot spots on a few of the areas on the ship. This was kind of a new process for me to play with and I really enjoyed it. I also experimented with a new pallet called a split complementary pallet. So I mixed most of my colors that went into painting this ship more like using traditional materials. Then I did add a creamy white and a bright orange at the end to get a little more range. I really enjoyed working this way. There are a couple artist that I combined their methods to go through this process. An artist by the name of Sycra had some great advice on using the split complementary pallet. Then I used another artist by the name of Sinix techniques for the Thick and Thin pen . It created a more hand painted look for the final result.
