photoshopping is so exhausting

You’ve got it all
You lost your mind in the sound
There’s so much more
You can reclaim your crown
You’re in control
Rid of the monsters inside your head
Put all your faults to bed
You can be king again

(heavily inspired by this clip)

Making It Work by suchfun

For the Sterek AU Fest. Project Runway AU. Rated T. 8.7k words.

Stiles can’t believe his luck when it turns out that yes, this challenge actually does involve them working in teams.

He goes right on back to believing it when he’s paired with Derek.

Do you have any tutorials?! Or like your process of sketch, line flat color, shading, fully done. Etc. I'd love to see your process? when I get to see step by step of beautiful artwork, helps me understand how it works and improve!

Here’s my process.  Rough sketch > Grayscale shade > Color

I separate the layers into 3 main part (hair, face, clothes) and I put Clipping-mask on each of them, then set a new layer (clipped to the main layers) into color mode then start with a flat color into a more complex mix.

I had to make this dummy because mine are worse than a jungle [here]

The main idea I put clipping mask is to safe time so that the color layer doesn’t mess with anything outside of the main layer. 
(clipping-mask is not necessary if you don’t like restriction, it just me hating to spent extra time erasing the color that smears beyond the subject) 

The most time consuming part of this technique would be the grayscale shading, it’s like a foundation of your drawings, composition, anatomy and light source. The color part is to emphasize the focal point by using saturated color (main focus on eyes, nose, lips) then desaturated color (for everything surround it). There’s also a mix of cool blueish color just so the skin doesn’t look too flat and it also gives a cinematic feel. The last part would be the most fun/frustrating part, it’s adding the details such a skin complexion and color adjustment.

Pardon me, my explanation is kinda sketchy, I forgot to keep track of the coloring process so it’s quite complicated to explain. I’ll make a better tutorial next time! =)
