Time to make another one
Shaping up to be a good one, I think once the highlights come in it's gonna look awesome (because they always do once the highlights come in)
I just fucking love making these
And time to work on another one because what the fuck else am I going to do
little update, the highlights on this one might take a bit longer than usual
And another one finished!
I'm just gonna keep making these until I fall asleep and then start again in the morning
I think the colour scheme is probably gonna work out really nicely on this one, the mustard yellow works better than expected
Finished the boy and I'm very happy with how he turned out
I changed the background on the first one I made of these because it shows off the actual ship a lot better.
I love making these and I have a lot of time on my hand anyway
I will keep making these until the end of time and nobody can stop me
This one is gonna take forever though
Pretty happy with how the snow speeder turned out!
At this rate I'm gonna run out of audiobooks to listen to while making these, gotta get me some more
Next one is gonna be the child from The Mandalorian and I can already tell I'm gonna love it so much when it's done
going very very well so far, still missing the highlights and colour balancing and stuff but I already love the child so much
I finished the child and I love it so much!
Doing Jango Fett next, because I love doing shiny surfaces in this style and also he has a neat design, and also my best friend loves him and he's basically my main audience
This one's gonna be tricky to get right though
Every single one of these goes through the same process where I start work thinking "If I get this right it's gonna be so good", then halfway through I think "Oh god I'm not sure it's gonna work" and then I start adding in the lights and go "oh no, wait, this is gonna be awesome"
Anyway, the boy is nearing the end and I think he's gonna be a very good one
Finished the boy!
And so the work begins on another one, Rey this time
And here she is! didn't take half as long as I thought she would
Next one up: Count Dooku, this time trying for a closeup
Aaaaand he's done!
and moving on to BB-8 because I am going to make these until I'll be able to focus on literally anything else again
this dumb little soccer ball droid is going to take me forever but I love him already and it's worth it
This little bastard was a lot of work but he was absolutely worth it
And, because I have absolutely nothing else to do these days, time for another one, this one will, again, take a while
I'm really happy with this one, the highlights work wonders here
@sousaphone this is the way
@FuchsiaShock Eventually I will have to make one with the child as well
@sousaphone all of these are amazing.
@FuchsiaShock thank you! I love making them and I've gotten really comfortable with the style since I made the original posters
@sousaphone how come the palate on the left goes away over time with your art?
are those colors you mean to incorporate as you go forward?
@adasauce yeah, I usually make a colour palette for these that doesn't stay in the final image, but basically all of these use five shades of colour (and maybe 3-4 for an additional colour like the orange in this case) and it's good to keep them handy on a separate layer. They usually change a bit over time though, I almost never get the palette right on the first try
@adasauce Basically, in this case I've already done the orange bits and the darkest colour, now I add the shadow colour (second darkest), then the lighting and the brightest highlights
@sousaphone Mia these are amazing!!
@WoozleWuzzle Thank you so much! I absolutely love making them!
@sousaphone would love to use it as a wallpaper <3
@olivia I don't know if mastodon compresses the image quality, but I can send you the highest resolution I have if you want :)
@sousaphone Do you have the full size version of these uploaded/archived anywhere I could download them? Mastodon has a habit of resizing and downgrading images in order to conserve space and I'd love to use these as wallpapers.
@radicalrobit I hve some decent quality jpgs of them, but I could also put higher quality pngs in a dropbox or send them to you directly if you want
A cool and chill place for cool and chill people.
