Dragonfox in the Basement

Copied from Furaffinity:

This is the second picture of my little project of recreating some of the more classic works of the famous Jeremy Bernal.

For those of you who might care to know, back when I first found out about my furryness. When I didn't know anything about the fandom and suchnot. The first furry pron I ever saw was some of Jeremy Bernal's stuff. Considering his attention to detail and marvelous style, he practically became a role model for me. I studied alot of his work, and his photoshop techniques (Reverse engineering of sorts) to improve my coloring skills, and the more I drew, the better my actual anatomy and drawing skills had gotten. And within the few years that have passed, ive sort of been interested in how far Id come.

So basically, this picture beside the original, I wanted to see how close I could get, to his level of expertize. And while its been a massive improvement sense my first submission to FA, its far from the real deal.

And with this picture complete, its likely going to be the last that I try to mimic. Because quite frankly no matter how much I drew it, it still feels like its not fully mine lol

(And for those who will ask, I did not trace in any way shape or form, if you have the original, you could actually see that they are a lot different. I only mimicked the pose and tried to color it with my l33t photshop skillz lol)

Ah good old Jeremy Bernal.

He uses a subtraction shading technique. Simply, flat colors on one layer, then locks the pixels. Then copies the layer and places the new layer over the old layer. Then he sets the top layer to "multiply" then paints the entire layer a shade of gray. Then, he begins to erase the gray to let the flat colors from the underneath layer sow through.

That's mostly what he does to get the basic muscle structure down. Then he adds more detail by adding overlays and blush strokes. Hard brush strokes over large muscle regions to simulate some kind of fur texture.

Any way. I think you did a good job on the coloring technique. I can see you did the same, since I can see the "circle imprints" that photoshop leaves due to spacing when you erased.

The one problem with the technique is that it takes away a lot of saturation from the colors below. Colors loose their vibrancy from the addition of the gray color. After you get the basic muscle structure shaded out, create a new layer and add color to highlights (Areas where the light shows the most). Add hues of blue or purple to shadows, to give that feeling of "life" back into the picture. It helps add depth to a picture when it doesn't seem like it is at first.

I hope I didn't babble too much. And I hope I was able to help out a little. I hope to see more good stuff from ya!
