Title: Ply-Spell
Name: david munoz velazquez
Country: Espaņa
Software: Photoshop

This a Character design for a ROLEPLAY game. It is a Wizard that uses spells to control any kind of yarn.
The idea was to create a wizard able to be efficient on fighting with weapons.

It was made straight away in Photoshop using a little bit of texture images to simulate more detail on some areas. I wanted to give it a feeling of a canvas painting, like a portrait of a hunter.

I will post a few close-ups and a variation of the hut the way it should be when he is going to fight.

Crits and comments are welcome ;)

Best Regards,

David Munoz Velazquez

me gusta el diseņo de tu personaje, aunque debo decir que a el hacha le falta mas brillo para mas efecto metalico, buen trabajo exelente!

Hi all, thanks for the comments and crits.

Cassandra: Thanks, I'll try to keep improving :)

Goro: Thanks mate!

matejkovacic: Thanks, I'm glad you like it.

amusdey: Thanks amigo! About the lack of specular or more naturalistic metallic axe, you are right, I wanted it to be stone made. May be is not very clear now, I want it to be not typically stone material but I think is not clear enough.

Me gustan los detalles y como le hisiste los pelos! :applause:

I love those ''scetchy paintings''! You have rendered out just what is important, and the dark and less important areas are left tobe completed by the eye of the viewer. Well done!!:applause:

dev1n: I'm glad you like it. Thanks.

Odysseus-XB: Thanks! That is what I like to see on a illustration but sometimes I have to control my self to not get crazy doing details and forget this loose areas that are more friendly with the eyes. :)

Very nice! I love how this is rendered perfectly, yet you managed to maintain a painterly/sketchy feel with your brushstrokes.

04-13-2007, 04:23 AM

Hi everyone! Thanks for the comments! :thumbsup::thumbsup:


The hair is painting by hand normally, you can create your own custom brush to give easier more detail..
Here you have a very good tutorial for painting hair and others. ..Tutorials.. (http://www.furiae.com/index.php?view=gallery)

About the strings, this is a way to get an interesting result:

1A. Paint a strong set of strings with the high tone of the colour you rather. Make sure this is painted inside an individual layer.

2A. Take the (1A.) duplicated and invert it so you can get a darker strings, after this you can adapt it as you want to be the dark tone you want to use for the shadows. (This needs an individual layer as well and has to be on the same position...)

3A. Select the brighter one (1A.) and by erasing you definie the areas that would be in shadow.


I hope this is usefull to you:)

Gracias por haber decido como lo hisiste, los tutoriales de Linda son de verdad maravillosos pero increhibles :) :p

04-14-2007, 04:52 PM
thanks alot buddy, that actually helped and it looks kool too!

04-14-2007, 05:03 PM
ok and one more question, in the tutorial u gave me, i went to the hair section and sometimes it says "set brush to opacity" or like "brush with spacing 5%" lol what does that mean!!!?? lol thx

04-14-2007, 07:17 PM
dev1n: Thanks mate:)

shahrouzb: ok I'll try to explain it.

....Open Image Here.... (http://munozvelazquez.com/post/brushes.jpg)

-set brush to opacity: If i understood properly I think it means to set the brush to a opacity that you want. The opacity can be found on the main horizontal bar that appears when you select a brush. Play with the options I have marked on red and you will see the differences and which you rather.

-Brush with spacing 5%: This is an option that you can make use any time you want to. If you press F5 the Brushes menu will appear. Right below the hardness of the brush is the Spacing, you can set it to 5% or whatever you like. Once the brush is set the way you like it, go to the brush option (red "Click Here") and press on "New Brush Preset..." and the Brush you have will be stored on the Brush Presets list, I think should be the last one.
