Medieval: Week 3: Andrew

Not a whole lot to report this week.  I started with the 3D render from last week, switched it to grayscale and started painting right over the top in Photoshop.  Some people like to paint completely in grayscale and then add all the color right at the end with an assortment of layer styles.  I prefer to get the color started a lot sooner.

Something I’ve been wrestling with on this picture is what all these giant shapes should be made of.  Initially it was all over the board but I think I’ve settled on silver, bronze, glass, and stone.  By grounding the image with a few recognizable materials I’m hoping to create a greater sense of realism and age.
