Russ by slaine69 Russ by slaine69
discovered a couple of new coloring methods while doing some work for other people it takes half the time and you can focus more on the picture than the colors which suits me fine, as for Russ was gonna have him bearing down on Angron but he's too cool a character to just show the back of him and I tried to make his armor a little more terminatorish too

This is by far the best art of Russ I've ever seen. I love how massive and feral you made him look, which in my book is dead on! Particularly love the way you drew his face, seems to have a bit of Marvel's Sabretooth about him which is excellent :). It killed me when I read that you almost put Angron in here too but didn't, as I've been dying to see those two in the same piece since I first time I read about them. Beautiful, brutal piece!

oh yeah don't misunderstand me , he surely used a sword, but his main weapon is the spear(in fact that was a chapter relic)
(from the space wolves tales by william king and from the lexicanum...see the link down here ^^)

Russ is the Primarch of the Space Wolves, so he should remind you of Warhammer!

cheers dude, I done it all in gray scale first and got the tonal values then used a color burn layer and overlay to slap the color on keeping it as loos as possible the tweaking the levels and contrast until I got the look I wanted

Wow man the detail is fantastic, is your new colouring method doing it in greyscale and colouring it afterwards?
Reply
:iconslaine69:
slaine69 Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2008
yup! seen it done loads before but could never figure out why I was getting it wrong till I started messing with the layer types, this ones got two separate layer of screen and color burn with a lot of dodging burning and contrast tweaking afterward

MassiveFace Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2008
Cool man, I've tried it but I could never get any consistancy with the colours, it turned out to be pot luck weather it looked pants. Your right, I probably need to fuck with the layers more.
