Making of Bronze Dragonby Kerem Beyit
In this tutorial we are going to color a dragon portrait.
Like I always said, it's impossible to make a good painting
without a good sketch, that's why if your drawing is not as
strong as you'd like, you should go ahead
and buy a sketchbook before taking up photoshop or
tablet or any other stuff like that.
Here, I create the background with my flame brush, the drawing
is in the multiply layer. First I form a dark background and then lighten
the parts around the portrait with the same brush, this will help us
see the figure clearer in the future.
Using my texture brushes, I applied the texture to the background that I created,
though I am careful not to apply at the same intensity around the
figure. The best way is to open a new layer and go crazy with the texture
(apply it as much as you want) then erase the parts that are too much.
