BONUS CONTENT: Art Process Display Banner, Pt 6 (Shade) & 7 (Space)

October 7, 2010

Now we’re into the fun part of the Coloring stage: the shading and highlights. In the left image, I added the shading on all of the main art, namely the characters and ships. With that done, in the right image, I started working on the background elements of space and planet. At this point, coloring characters is pretty easy and straightforward, but I knew the space background would be a bit more work and require more layers and experimentation. Having done a few colored space backgrounds before for the series, I knew I’d want to lay in some Cloud effects (a Photoshop filter) as a starting point.

Next up, more Space and Planet layers…
