Blocking in the Creature

When I was happy with the mood I started to block in some detail and the initial shape for the creature. The creature's shape was mainly painted with the Hard Round brush. Normally I use a mid-sized round hard brush for the base shape and then start to erase certain areas for smaller details (e.g., claws etc.). This procedure goes back and forth until I'm happy with the overall shape. I also added some details as you can see on the door, the top of the image and the poster onto the wall, although I wasn't sure if these were going to be in the final image. Again I added a new layer set to Soft Light and filled it with a soft greenish gradient on the lower right side (Fig.08).

Creature Details

When I paint in the details for a creature or character I like to work on separate layers for mid-tones and the highlights as well. The technique I used here is described at the beginning of this tutorial. For the details I used the Smudge tool with the special Smudge brush. You'll get some pretty soft-tone blending and some happy accidents as well. If I like the look I merge the layers and create a new one for painting/smudging more details and to add brighter highlights (Fig.09).
