Here are some process shots from this week's challenge: Redesign James O'barr's "The Crow"
As always, you can see the finished piece over at the Rust Belt Monster Collective.
Started by loosely drawing in Sketchbook pro.
Added the trees on separate layers and cleaned up the image.
Brought it into Photoshop and added the Grey Scale values. Lightened the trees to varying degrees to get some depth.
Converted the whole thing to a half tone. Took way longer than I would have liked to find a setting I liked.
Laid the original line work on top of this and placed the whole thing on a paper texture. See the finished piece at the Rust Belt Monster Collective.
