Hiya guys and gals....I'm Kyri of Darkpath Images...Don't get too scared now. This is a pic I did for the up and coming Opera game based on the John Woo films. I started off by sketching out the characters Sean and Christi in my sketch pad.
They where then scanned in and the first step was to put flat colour them. I used a pic I had painted to texture them, then shaded using the cloning tool at different opacities.
Next I used the smudge, dodge and burn tools and finally neatened them up.
For the background I used a combination of photos and artwork. I used a pic I did of the opera character Mark, firstly making him blue on a black background then setting it to "screen", and changing the opacity.
I played around with the photos, cut and paste, dodge, burn and the filters. Then textured up the roof. Finally I neatened the whole thing up, phew, and there you have it.
