Hi guys, i don’t post a lot about Jun lately, but i got pretty good news about Trauma Soldier. And i got a lot of work to end my next book, it will be some pretty busy weeks soon.
So a little something today, i have to do some fake ad for my comics book, and it’s very fun !

Bravest Warriors #24 is coming out next week, with this cover I did for it! Here’s some of the process work - I included some explanations this time. I don’t know if it’ll be helpful at all or just… verbose… but hopefully there’s something useful in there :>

1. Thumbnail

2. Tight sketch

3. Rough values painted underneath the sketch

4. Value painting on top of the sketch to tighten things up

5. Flat colors! Regular area fill for set pieces, and a few color/overlay layers to quickly indicate hues in the painting

6. Set lighting: using multiply layers to indicate the overall scene lighting raking across the wall, working out how that will interact with the portrait painting and lead the eye. Also continuing to paint in regular layers on top of the portrait.

7. Warming/brightening up the scene lighting, picking out highlights on the frame, softening some form shadow edges to add dimension, adding some rimlight to Catbug. Continuing to work up the portrait. Adding occlusion shadows under the frame and curtains.

8. Using a lighten layer to better expose and unify the areas of the scene struck by light. Lightening the shadow areas a bit to raise overall tone and prevent stuff from getting lost or too dark.

9. Pushing the lights even further to get a stronger afternoon-light feel and create better separation between light and shadow. Adding a soft glow around the light edges. And dust mote sparkles! :>

I saw a preview for Super III’s new world the day before and was immediately inspired, and any excuse to draw space environments and cute aliens is A-OK by me. uvu

Super III seems to be shaping up beautifully and I’m really excited to see more from the developers, in the future! You can learn more about it in the following links: x | x

Oh and here’s a progress gif!:
