Part 2 of my process update of Ryuko Matoi, Kill La Kill Fan Art. Very simple process and small number of layers. The line art layer is on top of the Master Mask Layer. All the base colors layers are clip masked over the Master Mask Layer. I locked each base color layers in transparency mode to only paint the particular areas cleanly. The Face is painted with soft round brush with only opacity sensitivty on. I dabbed the brush on the face very softly like airbrushing. Senketsu Eye is treated the same way with soft round brush. I kept everything dark and neutral in value, that way I can pull and push the value and contrast of colors easily at a later step.
Sort of going for my art style version of Ryuko. Slightly more mature in proportion
Ask me questions in the comments below regarding the process. Please share this among your friends if you find this exciting and useful!
love you work and proportions... this kind of poses are still difficult for me. you mentioned that your line art is on top of your master mask layer. this make me think that all your line would be dark or black like around the hands and hair but around the skin and parts of the red hair your line art is has a value resembling the color it is next to. how did you manage that? thanks for the feed back.
I don't understand the masking part. I guess you colored in a grey tone for the whole figure, then set it as a masked layer to keep all the other colors trapped in, in the other layers, right? Then you just colored every flat color in the appropriate place. You have all the layers on top of the lineart too, right? What is the blending mode of the colored layers? And the grey flat one at the bottom? Are there more than one mask layers on here? Thanks for any help.
