hi all, i have finally created yet another video.
this image will expand as i make more videos of it :) so stay tuned :3

its here:
:bulletred: part1: [link]
:bulletred: part2: [link]
:bulletred: part3: [link]
:bulletred: part4: [link]
this picture is the finished product of it.
the duration of the video is 9minutes and it shows how i create a lineart from a previously drawn on paper drawing. i changed the clip speed so it goes faster, the time it took for me to create this lineart was originally 45 minutes.

i will work further on this picture and specifically why i chose this particular picture was because want to demonstrate how i paint fire and fire illumination.

forgive me the anatomy mistakes(i know the dude on the right has a funny facial anatomy) but i will fix it all in the painting process.
i always think of planes and forms, so when it comes to lines im a complete idiot XD but lol.. it is another thing i need to learn and overcome :) all i can hope is that you enjoy the ride with me :)

part2: its a short video of color flatting, duration is 5 minutes. original time it took me to flatten was 27 minutes.

part 3: rendering,working with clipping mask.
by looking through the video you will notice how fast i discarded my lineart and simply started overpainting. i have no respect for my own lineart, i always see errors in it.
if its someone elses lineart.. fine, ill underpaint.. but if its mine XD i just lose patience XD
its fast because i squezeed 2 and a half hours in 15 minutes @__@ clip speed over 700 wooooo

part 4: painting fire and overall illumination
and fianlly it is compleeeteee!!! now i can go and take a nap, i hate summer so much it drains every ounce of energy left >.>

This is really helpful!! I like your technique, I prefer to work with few layers too! Just one question... When you fixed the faces with that menu that appeared on the right.. what was that? I think you opened it from the analysis tab, but I'm not sure. It's something that would do me so much good!
