Scifi-Medusa Tutorial by yakonusuke
Scifi-Medusa Tutorial
And the other step by step I made for a magazine 6 months ago. Again, I hope it helps people to get their head wrapped around these kind of tasks.
Enjoy!

Viking Ship - how I approach complex surfaces. by yakonusuke
Viking Ship - how I approach complex surfaces.
A piece I did for a magazine 6 months ago. Maybe you find it useful to read how I approach something like that.


When I approach a complex painting I always try to think several steps ahead to figure
out the easiest and fastest way to my desired goal. So for this task I want to paint a viking
ship figurehead with a variety of materials. I also want it to have different and interesting
colors and patterns and place it in a atmospheric setting. Painting these ideas all at once
would be a real pain. So how to approach it? Splitting all tasks in little digestible bits of
course.
So I start off with the drawing, where I just focus on composition and design. It doesn’t
has to be too clean, but the more design questions I answer at this point the less I have to
work on the design later on.
After that I’ll block in the most important shapes on separate layers and lock the
transparency. This way I can go wild with my brushes but will always maintain a clean
shape.
Now that I got my shapes I start adding color. Just pick the ones I need and put it in
without thinking about light and shadow.
After that I get to the light and mood part. I use layer modes and brush modes like color dodge,
multiply, lighten, etc. I establish all light sources and start rendering the materials like I
think they would react to them.

I chose this page since it's one of the key moments in the books. Unfortunately ( watch out, incoming blasphemy) Otomo messed up some faces in the first book... so this scene wasn't perfect visually, ( the faces in the last 2 panels are slightly off... check it out: Tetsuos eyes...dear god... I had to change them a bit) but it's great nonetheless.

Sorry for my absence, DA. I'm pretty busy with work, which won't change for a while and I'm not doing much for myself artwise. Kinda recharging and procrastinating with games. I got plans for art, but lack the motivation and time to make them real.
To bridge that time I'll post this little Akira work I did a couple of months ago just for fun... I planed to make a couple of those ( I got 2 more, which I'll post later) and even animate them a bit in After Effects or so. You know, just to get a bit of movement in with effects and warping... that won't happen though. So... here it goes as it is.
