Soldier number three was, thankfully, fairly straightforward. He went through some variations as well, but nothing very drastic (Fig.09a - d). With the three figures completed, the background fell into place rather quickly. What I wanted was simple - rubble fading away into a dusty background. The best way to paint rubble is to lay down shapes without thinking about them too much. Real rubble falls randomly, so I believe it should be painted kind of randomly too. After getting those basic shapes down a few minutes of quick noodling will wrap things up.

With everything painted I adjusted the overall brightness and contrast on adjustment layers and applied a very subtle noise grain to the whole thing just to give it a tiny bit of texture (Fig.10). And that's it! Hopefully this tutorial proves helpful and many thanks to 3DTotal!

Hi Chase I really like this illustration. I hope someone picked it up for a book cover? I was wondering what kind of "real" time it took to accomplish some thing like this? Cheers Alan

Beautiful piece! I would like to hear how you paint your "hard surface objects" like the guns, do you use lasso tools alot? or how do you generate that perfectly symmetrical machine-made feel.
