Fox Trot Walkthrough by Katmomma Fox Trot Walkthrough by Katmomma
The walkthrough stages of "The Raggy Fox Trot"


From a notebook doodle in class, to a rendered piece of digital awesome. Multiply Layers and color theory layers were involved, along with the line art being set over top the underpainting. Any further questions, feel free to ask :)

How fantastic!

I do have a question...between steps five and six, when they go from browns to silvery-dark, the base for the final product...did you simply lay down fresh colors, or lock the pixels and put the colors on where you already shaded? Or did you play wiht the levels?

I continued to develop the values in the brown and then I played around with brightness/contrast-- and then saturation. =D...thus producing stage 6.
Thank you!

Lovely poses, and the shadows are great.

Those middle couple look good enough to eat!
(Might be the chocolate colouring :giggle: )

The rich colours and powerful lighting and shading look fantastic on the final piece! It's interesting to see how it was all built up. Great stuff!

It's always neat to see the steps. What did you do to make them...black and white ish, just paint over on a new layer with those shades, or what?

adjust contrast and midtone after the final highlights and shadows are finished :D I also messed with the saturation :B

If you notice that, it's already good, because most artists don't seem to care and get really, really angry if you point it out:P

Did you underpaint it then paint flat colors on an opacity-low layer, or paint flat colors with a setting on low opacity, OR underpaint then paint the colors on with additional shading and highlights and such?
Also, was it a black and white underpainting tinged with sepia, or a sepia underpainting overall?

Katmomma Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2009  Professional Artist
Underpainting done on normal opacity in sepia tones (I used browns). I only adjusted brightness and contrast. The color layers were done on lower opacity multiply layers. and then on top, a normal layer for the highlights and reflected lights. :D

These types of things are always fun to see. It seems to create an interesting look when you create the shadows and highlights in a monotone and add color over it in the end.

Maybe I should try it too. I'm not exactly sure how the layers are all arranged and what settings they are set to though.

Adobe Photoshop CS2, Corel Photo-Paint 7, Adobe Illustrator CS3, and Macromedia Fireworks are all the programs I use for my various digital endeavors :meow: This one was done in Photoshop with a Wacom Intuos3 tablet. :D Brushes are custom. :hug:
