Process Gif for Spacemarine Commission

This is a set of process gifs I made with screengrabs I snatched while painting it. The person who commissioned it wanted it to be a portrait, that’s why the marine is wearing glasses.

Concept art smarts used:

  • Transformation tools to edit proportions of rough sketch and value painting.
  • Overpaint of reference photo for accurate likeness.
  • Photo based texturing.
  • Polygon lasso used to define hard surface shapes.

You can see the sketch phase…

…the first overall shading, without detail…

…a bit of stretching and first wave of details, including photobashing the reference photo for the face into the image…

…more layers…

…photo texture bashing, and rimlight…

…colors and tweaks.
