Ezio in Venice TUTORIAL by Namecchan Ezio in Venice TUTORIAL by Namecchan
Hiya guys! C:

As promised threatened, here's the tutorial/WIP thingy of Ezio in Venice! <:
More than a tutorial, I'd say it's a peek into how I paint… c:

Hope you enjoy it! <: (Download it for full size! C:)


Program used: Photoshop (but it's the same with every painting software, I guess…)
Brushes: chalk brush and oil brush
Layers: background, lineart (hidden and then deleted almost right away), Ezio, overlay for the adjustments.

STEP 1:
After filling the background with a light purple, I did a not-so-detailed lineart, then started painting on top of it with a chalk brush, just to block in the colours, especially in the face. Basically I started to get a feeling on where shadows and lights would fall.

STEP 2:
I started using the oil brush, which is the only brush I used till the end of the piece. As you may see, I started detailing Ezio's face a bit.
Note: I don't really start on the body until I don't get the face right… It's a quirk of mine, I guess… xD

STEP 3:
FLIPPING! I can't stress enough how important it is, to check the balance of the image and somehow highlight what you're doing wrong… C:

STEP 4:
now that I was kinda satisfied with the face, I moved on to the body.
Since I wanted to keep a rough feeling, I didn't detail this part too much; if I want to be really accurate, I usually do a proper lineart first, instead of starting with blotches of colours… C;

STEP 5:
more details on the clothes, especially his cape and shirt.

STEP 6/7:
flipping again! C: More attention on the hood and its folds, and on the torso. I guess it was at this point I noticed the proportion were quite off, so I had to resize his cape-covered shoulder and "stretch" his body (using the resize tool and the warp tool, the latter mainly to adjust shape and positions of the red stitches on the shirt).

STEP 8:
starting the background with blobs of colors just to get a felling on where buildings would be.

STEP 9:
more details on the background.

STEP 10:
blurred the bg using the "movement blur" C:

STEP 11:
after rotating the bg a bit, because it wasn't in the right perspective, I created a new layer set on "overlay" and adjusted the colours here and there, especially on Ezio's face and the sky.
Then I signed it and called it a day! C:


I hope I didn't bore you too much! C:
Let me now if you have any questions! <:

I've used a standard chalk and oil brush! <: I'm quite sure I've tweaked some of the options a bit, but I don't really remeber which ones... D:

So you do the flipping thing too-- just recently discovered that, and Lord, does it help!!

Oh yeah, flipping's in an invaluable tool! C;
To be honest, when I flip the first time I feel sick, 'cause my drawing usually looks horrible and decidedly unbalanced...XD But it's through the flipping than we can correct them, isn't it? <;

yep! Lol it's good to know I'm not the only one who seems to have no innate sense of proportion on initial sketches... ; )

Uno si allontana dieci minuti e quando torna scopre che Clo è diventata Leonardo da Vinci... xD Aaaawwww!!! *_*

XD Ahah, altro che dieci minuti! C;

Comunque grazie! <: Ma altro che Leonardo! D: (se hai citato Leonardo perche' ll'immy raffigura Ezio e quindi AC2, sappi che guadagni punti stima! C; )
