light and shade in artificial scenery

Postby Lazur » Fri Apr 14, 2017 9:53 am

Sneek peak to the process of building up my poster for digital graphics subject at the university.

From left to right:
original concept, permanent markers and wood finish on packaging paper
pencil drawing on plywood
permanent marker on glossy print foil
two rendered images with blender
a composite of the previous two
the raster image traced with inkscape

Original size is 350 mm / 1000 mm, had cut off the header part on the top -two of the photographs taken had them.
Will have to print out the final result, still I'd like to add in some details and end up with a grubgier, more industrial look as on the first image.
Have to figure out how to manage it, since filtering may be a bit processor melting at this scale.

Fantastic!
Have a nice day.

I'm using Inkscape 0.92.2 (5c3e80d, 2017-08-06), 64 bit win8.1

The Inkscape manual has lots of helpful info! http://tavmjong.free.fr/INKSCAPE/MANUAL/html/

Your project is inspiring. o.o I like how it started from traditional media and ended up digital. I think this is a good example of what a creative mind can do. :)

Thank you!

Do you follow that route and start with traditional media first?

Oh you paint. Can we see some of that?

You're welcome! :]

Not all the time, but I do. Recently, I've been working on an anime-inspired portrait. It started as a pencil lineart, that I, then, edited with GIMP and Paint.NET. It's still a work in progress.
I've found that sketching and planning is better with traditional media. It makes me want to work harder since there is no Ctrl + Z in the real world, just an eraser. Except if I'm using color pencils, crayons, markers or ballpoint pens. :lol: Also, I like working with a limited amount of color, like, for example, red, yellow and blue (yeah, traditional painter's color theory.)

While I had my try at traditional painting, I do digital painting mostly. About showing them, I don't know. There's a topic about using Inkscape with other programs. And I do like using more than one medium/program to achieve what I want.
