Description

In this series of Photoshop tutorials, we will go over the process of how to draw a medieval knight using various painting and photo texturing techniques. We will cover the entire process of creating a polished illustration of a medieval fantasy knight. We'll start with a 3D base, which we will use to as a starting reference for anatomy and pose. Using simple line drawing, we will then lay out the basic bits and pieces of our armor. The next step is to photo-texture the armor using reference images from real armors. To finish everything up, we will have a look at different blending and lighting techniques that will help you polish and finalize any digital illustration. After viewing this training, you should have a solid grasp on using photo textures, painting different types of lighting and reflection, and finishing a drawing that looks clean, crisp, and ready for your portfolio. Software required: Photoshop CS6.
