Working In Photoshop

Now I was ready to do the fun part, as you can see in the picture "render" it came out of the oven looking far from finished. I started to do color correcting, painting over lazy parts and mistakes in Photoshop - added some wrinkles around his eyes and small details like moles, corrected the cheeks, added light bounces and subtle color changes to make his skin a bit more interesting. I used basic brush setups, mostly using a simple round brush. People say that 2 minutes in Photoshop can save you 2 hours of work in 3d. And I strongly agree with that, especially when it comes to making still images. Some people consider it to be cheating, but I think that the thing that matters is the result not the tools. The painting over was done in fairly high resolution so brush strokes weren't too obvious when I scaled the image down

After I was done with the character I added atmospheric effects around him like little bubbles of light and smoke particles around his stick. I was also thinking about making an audience behind him, but then I realized that this piece was about a man and his connection with music, so the backdrop idea died off naturally
