I don't usually do non-humor pieces, but I thought the battle scene competition would be fun to work on . . . . with the motivation of getting free stuff.
The premise is [since] G1 [toys] are fricking bricks, the challenge is making 'em look alive. The G1 boxart homage is not a coincidence. I even took time to study 'em to get a feel for 'em. Note that the objective is not realism, but its gotta look like there's a lot of [things] going on.
Onward to the tutorial!
- 18 cons, 22 bots, 40 total (as usual, 'bots had numbers)
- composed at 3000 x 1500 + pixels, over 50 layers and around 100 megs
A word on composition: when working with lots of elements, group the elements in [a] hierarchy (foreground, background, etc.). Notice how certain bots are grouped together by size and viewing distance. It helps [with the] clarity of composition.
Also, once you're done, take your time to review the work and look at it with fresh eyes. I took 2-3 days just to make minor tweaks; I added the 3 changers during this time, [and] even adjusted the composition a bit of the figures in the center area to 'get it right').
- Repeat [the previous step], but [using] yellow for inner circle;
- [Use] white for the center
- Use the radial blur [tool]. Add in white or black specks prior [to this step] to create [a] debris effect.
[You] can also [out]line the outer circle with black, [to] give it harder edge.
