Whispers Of Death Digital Painting Tutorial by Andantonius Whispers Of Death Digital Painting Tutorial by Andantonius
I saved process shots of my Diablo 3 piece (Link) and put together a tutorial for it.

It's always fun doing these and seeing the process in retrospect, and hopefully you guys get some use out of it. :)

Yes. You most decidedly make this look too easy. There's so much attention to detail here, and I love it! I've never been able to render detail into art other than writing. It just somehow isn't something my brain conjures when I think of pictures.

haha, thanks! A lot of it just has to do with looking at lots of reference, there's too much detail in real scenes to be able to think of it all from imagination.

I feel a little less inept now. :) I never really used photo reference when I drew... Maybe if I ever get back into that, I'll have to give it a shot and see if I can stuff more of that delicious detail in. :D

hey man, this is really awesome thanks for spending the time to give a look into your process.
just a question, how big is you working file when finished? I notice the final image posted is 2000x3945. Is that the size you worked on it or is your photoshop file bigger?

Thanks, glad it's helpful! :)

The full size is actually a bit bigger than that, 3300 x 6510 specifically. If there's a character in the scene I generally want the canvas to be big enough that I can paint the face without having to use any brushes smaller than 5px.

So you happen to have any pointers on I can do to get comfortable with backgrounds? When ever I think about it I get really overwhelmed. Do you have any suggestions on how to get started?

And THANK you SOOOoooo much for this it was amazing and has inspired me to keep practicing with sketchup.

I think the most important things are to study perspective and observe from life. Perspective for getting them technically accurate so the space feels believable, and observing life to help "populate" it with objects and things that will make it feel like a real place. And of course lots and lots of practice. :)

Glad it was helpful!
