From the Darkness.. by SaffuranLoL From the Darkness.. by SaffuranLoL
I will return.

-----

This is just a small playaround with my tablet and some Photoshop filter settings on an unfinished piece of lineart you may recognize. I kinda liked the feel the picture gave off so I said "Why not just throw it up and see what happens."

It's a quick work overall (just about an hour or 2, the lineart I'm counting as separate time) using the tablet for some rough paint and highlighting work.

But it does give Saff a cool setting, I always felt that a dark, ominous background with a bright spot could have some potential with his color scheme.

This was more of part of a lineart that I sat on forever before finally finishing it in "Night Apple" but it had a nice run as its own image.

And I stick to Adobe Photoshop CS3, it gets the job done nicely for me.

It's just a mess around prelude to his back reference but I'm happy you like it, I wanted to just mess around with some stuff and any good people can find in it is gravy for me. ^^

lots of time and coloring. The brush is about a 55% flow 55% opacity for the painting part and normal 100% for the highlights while I threw in some blurs and sharpening along with a tablet stroke light a few layers for the eye-light streak.

Maybe from the cinematic that runs just before the final showdown would be the closest comparison, not sure tho since it's all outta my head. xD

A couple blurs and exposure effects along with a little sharpening since it heightens the contrast.
