5 – FINISHING TOUCHES
Once the shading and texturing is finished, I’ll see what it looks like all together: all the shading layers are placed in a folder set to multiply above the textures and flats. I then tweak the colours as needed. I often put a wash of colour over the non-shaded areas here, especially in scenes lit by strong lighting. Any extra details like the water spray and highlights on wet objects in this image, or the glow of the Freakangels’ powers are dealt with in this stage.
And it’s done! Ariana handles the lettering and preparation of the finished page for the web.
