HALO 3: ODST Process by Cryptcrawler HALO 3: ODST Process by Cryptcrawler
Full view for details.

Im extremely fortunate to have others interested in what my process is and I really havent delivered up until now for really a myriad of reasons.
The first being that I only work on 2 layers and the work tends to evolve very quickly and Im simply not in the mindset to stop my groove and take a screencap.

The other reason is is that I dont want the friggin mess in my folders! Its too much clutter and the 2 very fragile little braincells that are left in my skull simply cant be bothered to find out why it would even be a relavant wip to keep anyway!

Well we all happened to luck-out on this comission becasue I had to keep WIP shots to send in to Bungie to discuss changes, these jobs commonly are heavily directed and have the input of many people to make them all happen. Bungie was really, really awesome to work with, they really helped me pull the best out of this composition given the timetable for the final.

Ive gone ahead and numbered them just in case there are any questions.

Thank you very much for taking the time and interest in my art, it means a lot.

Very best wishes to you!

I love the way you work, I hate to apply colours later in the process and use too much levels! My big problems are blendings, for shapes and colours. How do you do that? Do you use the smudge tool? and also do you use options like overlay and multiply?

I really think that your work done in 3D, because no WIP pict
The render/coloring in the painting (this and another) are magnificent, just like 3D render
It proof me wrong, I think. Isn't?

Great works!!!
