In this video we go over the process I took for making a simple, fast acting, ink pen in Photoshop. This is an ideal tool for drawing and cross hatching in large compositions like the one used for Rocket Randee. I cover a number of concepts including:
Canvas size when making characters for use in After Effects
A look at real ink marks
Shape Dynamics and the Size Minimum setting
Transfer Dynamics, the difference between Flow and Opacity
In this video I show you three different ways that you can add texture to the line drawings of Rocket Randee. I also go over the use of shapes and folders to create your puppet pieces for a non-drawing approach.
Some of the topics I cover in this are: Lasso Tool, Quick Mask, Refine Mask, Alpha Mask Layers, Adjustment Layers, Warp Tool, Liquify and more.
In this video I attempt to add texture to the Rocket Randee Rocket pack and Face using a combination of painting techniques and photographic textures using photoshop.
Some of the topics I cover in this are: Using photos for colour reference, colour selection, painting techniques, adjustment layers, warp tool, using effects layers for scratches and bumps, and much more.
