Transformation Time

in art •  2 months ago


"Something weird happened. I don't know what it is, but I think I like the results."

This is a toony style full detail YCH (Your-Character-Here) commission for ForrestTheBoar on Twitter who won a little YCH auction I had put up on one of my other sites. He unexpectedly turned from a boar into a bat.

My Layer Layout

  • Foreground Folder
    • Lineart layer
    • Highlights layer
    • Backlights layer
    • Shadows layer
    • Color Folder
      • Detail Folder (Masked to Base Color layer.)
        • Quaternary Color layer
        • Tertiary Color layer
        • Secondary Color layer
      • Base/Primary Color layer
  • Shadows layer
  • Extra Sketch layer
  • Fine Sketch layer
  • Rough Sketch layer
  • Canvas Background layer (Neutral color like grey.)

  • Canvas Prep/Rough Sketch

    Layers Used:
    Canvas Background layer
    Rough Sketch layer

    I start off with the neutral colored background and the rough sketch of the potential character over it.

    Note: The first few steps' imagines may look funny because again, this was a YCH, so it was presented as such like what is shown with the bottom image of this step. Though, some of the rough sketch lines are missing since I somehow wound up deleting them.



  • Fine Sketch

    Layers Used:
    Fine Sketch layer

    Then after the winning client submitted his idea and details, I sketch in a finer sketch over the roughes.


  • Lineart

    Layers Used:
    Foreground Folder -> Lineart layer

    After the sketches, I lineart over the sketches.


  • Base Color

    Layers Used:
    Foreground Folder -> Base/Primary Color layer

    I used the contiguous "wizard" tool to select areas outside of the character's parameters, invert the selection, then fill with a neutral color. I always do it this way to avoid gaps in my base color had I just selected areas within the parameters.


  • Detail Color

    Layers Used:
    Foreground Folder -> Color Folder -> Detail Folder -> (Folder's color layers)

    Add in the character's other colors.


  • Shadows

    Layers Used:
    Foreground Folder -> Shadows layer (Layer Blending Mode: Grain Merge; Opacity: 50%)

    Add in the shadows.


  • Highlights

    Layers Used:
    Foreground Folder -> Highlights layer (Opacity: 65%)

    And add in the highlights.


  • Background

    Layers Used:
    Canvas Background layer
    Background Shadows layer

    Then finally, whiten the canvas background and add a little shadow under the character.


Then we are done!

Enjoy the transformation!
