Oh wow thats fantastic! I've been wanting to start drawing again and just didn't know how the process works. This is so helpful. I feel like i could do step 1 ok lol but step 2 is just such a jump. I'd love to watch a speed vid on youtube of one of these.
Its a shame so much detail gets lost from frame 3 to 4, but so much energy and atmosphere gets added. Really love this process.
Can you explain overlay? im interested in trying this, cuz my digital work come out plastic looking, cuz i work out my light values in pencil, which looks fine. Then when i go to paint it in the computer, i start from scratch. (flats then dark to light.) but it ends up looking like plastic as apposed to organic.
a bit difficult to explain, but take some greyscale sketches and just do some experiments with different values of colour, saturation etc until you get a feel for how the different layer modes react. It'll start to make sense eventually!
