Create a Bug like NPC – non playable character
Today we are going to design a character maybe for a video game.
I will use my Wacom tablet to do this one; and maybe some PS effects and styles; will see.
The idea is to create a Bug like NPC (non playable character) enemy character.
So let’s begin.
Create a new document 1024×768 and a new layer.
Use some gradients on it to create our background.
Here is the result:
Pick this brush with these settings and begin to paint.
Well, we get something like this.
No custom colors, just the colors from the original gradient image.
Create another layer ? character layer.
Then we need the base concept of the character: forms and basic shapes.
Use basic brush for this.
Use basic hard edged brush.
Well that is it about the design.
Now add color to the character.
For this I’m going to use this kind of brush and brush settings.
Ad more and more detail, refine the edges of the character, it is very important.
I’ve changed a little bit of the design. Add more and more details to the body.
Add simple light source to the back of the image and add atmosphere.
And we are done here.
