Winter Battlefield - WIP by bluemattersoda Winter Battlefield - WIP by bluemattersoda
Just a fanart of Battlefield 2142 which I never finished. Well, here's to unfinished art!!

anyhow, I was working on a new process to digital painting with this piece, which was to use grey tones to draw the picture, with detail, and then adding light coatings of colour and more detail. Kinda like Ryan Church.

But it failed. Epically. It just doubled the amount od time used to paint, with no real technical improvement.

anyhow, as you can see, I never really finished the detailing, though some bits are already finished. The hand and gun in the foreground obviously never got into the whole colouring stage.

Well, enjoy!!

Even if you didn't finish it, it's very well done.

Add to Battlefield Series -[link] Fav Collection :)

Its really nice considering how it gives you the feeling of "ok time for war" feeling.

thanks for the comment, but sorry, no i probably won't be doing more 2142 stuff. I'm trying to concentrate on original concepts. But doing fanart is great technical practice, so there's probably still room for fanart and tributes! Thanks for stopping by!

Lol true, or u could use the idea and redo it. Id probably do it in a kinda more film aspect kinda ratio. with the hand up front. U know like the first person sequence in the Doom movie?it is a cool idea. I never actually played 2142 before.

I really wish I could do things like this. If I could, I would spend days on single images just to perfect the detail.

I see that your form is getting clearer and clearer now, your shapes getting more define :). And your conveyance of depth is to be jealous of. AND THE CLOUDS! :O_o:

this is really cool, another option you can try with going from greyscale to color is to set the greyscale layer to multiply and put a layer underneath it and set that to multiply , you will be adding the color on the underneath layer. Might be something to experiment with a bit.

That is how I colored my hungry painting, not the greatest painting in the world (it was my 4th digital painting or so) but working in greyscale first did teach me a lot about values and things which I still need to work on

Actually, I started off with duotone paintings....its actually good practice to do uncoloured digital work....I suggest you give that a try, work on the painting without worrying about colour. And thanks heaps for the advice - i'll see how I will apply it!
