Inter Deum et Diabolum by temiel Inter Deum et Diabolum by temiel
Oh Zarael, you BAD angel. :giggle:

I have no idea what possessed me to do him up this way... but I'm fairly pleased with the result. I really think I had just a little too much fun drawing and coloring this... but hey, I really enjoyed the coloring part, which normally is a bit of an afterthought for me. :heart:

Pencil and PS.

Thank you! I was thinking about the lighting a lot... I have been a lot more lately. It's not something I usually like to incorporate because it can be really complicated, but including it has helped me understand it better.

HEHE, thank you!! :D I'm so glad you like them, I really enjoy drawing attractive guys. :3

For the pencil lines, I use a blue-line pencil for a really basic sketch outlining the body contours, and then I make the more detailed lineart in pencil on top of it. I scan in RGB color, and then when I open it in PS I go to the Channels palette and make all the channels invisible except for Blue. That makes it so the blue line is EXTREMELY faint (and in some cases totally invisible). Then you switch the mode to Grayscale, clicking "yes" to erase the other channels, and do your level adjustment like usual. It REALLY helps clean the whole thing up. Here's a good tutorial to give you a visual: [link]

He certainly strikes a very impressive figure! He knows black trousers are complimentary to his wings ;)

I have some crit, though - the anatomy on his torso bothers me. I know you're going for the muscular yet skiny look but I do think the discrepency between the width of his shoulders and waist is too extreme(it looks like it's almost half the width of the shoulders). The other thing that troubles me is on the left arm (his right) - I think it comes out of the body too low (i.e. his armpit isn't high enough). It makes the movement on his bent arm look a little restricted, which is probably why I've spotted it. Certainly this hasn't struck me on any of your other mancandy pics so it's probably just this one, so something to bear in mind, perhaps?

Pleh, I meant to reply to this earlier but my boss started actually watching me at work and then it got buried in my inbox. :faint: Fun fact: Zarael only wears black clothing when he's being BAD. :meow:

I tend to do that particular shoulder-waist ratio with most of my guys, actually (you can see it pretty well in . Zarael's a little more built than most of them (except Donovan, the antler guy... what can I say, Trean has a type), so it probably sticks out most notably on him. This one's definitely not without its errors... the one that keeps bothering me is the fact that one eye is higher up than the other, and that they're uneven distances from the bridge of his nose (doh!). ;) At a certain point while I was working on it, this picture became almost entirely about the coloring (it was certainly never about my MASTERFUL COMPOSITION for example, because I'm lazy and cut those feet off on purpose :XD:), since I tried something slightly different with how I did the shading (and which I've discovered I like!), so... not perfect, but not a total failure either. :love:

Ahh well, then if you're aware of the sgoulder-waist ratio and armpits too low then I shan't mention it again :) Especially as your aims were colour based on this pic.

temiel Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2010  Professional General Artist
I don't even know WHAT my aim was with this to start with... but by the end it became a color thing, definitely. :rofl: The armpit thing kind of comes and goes (*solfieri mentioned once that I tend to do my guys' pecs a little low so I try to watch that), but the shoulder/waist thing at this point is something that I do unconsciously but in the same way that I keep all my facial proportions about the same (regardless whether they're right or not). I'm willing to chalk it up to personal style. Right up until the point when my personal style changes. ;)

This was another one of those ones that I was enjoying drawing just a biiiit too much. :giggle: I think while detailing certain key bits of the anatomy (namely the whole chest area, I'm so in love with torsos) I was actually trying not to grin like an idiot. :XD:

Ah, no, I totally fake them. :D This one is done with three different textures in layers, all colorized, and I think one is on Multiply and one is on Overlay. Then I took a textured brush and used Linear Burn mode to make the corners darker.

VERY glad you like him! :giggle: I definitely like him in the leather... XD

HEHEHEHE!! I was hoping you would, I was thinking the whole time "Hmm, I hope Toni likes it..." :giggle: He ALWAYS gets love from me, probably far more than he's worthy of. :XD: I'm glad you like it, I was actually quite proud of the whole thing (and especially the coloring, somehow I think it came out pretty well).

And OH MAI!!! :excited: If you did happen to do such a thing I'd just be BESIDE myself. :love: If not, of course, that's fine too... but you know I'm a huge whore for pictures of my guys. :giggle:

TCShelton Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2010
Yes! Toni likes it vuury much, indeed. :love: And I agree, I think the colors came out very well. I actually really like how your colors have been going. I think I mentioned before with your Trean background pic how the colors seem more... solid lately. Soft still but less straight-up airbrush-y.

My schedule's freeing up soon so I think I will! (And, y'know, finish the one I've already started. :roll:)

You know what I've been doing more of lately, is layering colors on top of colors. For this one I did flat coats of opaque color on each layer, then blocking out shadows on a low-opacity multiply in the same color, then putting cast shadows; in the lighter areas, I've been doing the light in low-opacity overlay, then color dodge, then linear dodge for the really bright spots. Learning how to use these other blending modes has been really helpful. :D

OOH YAY!! :D I AM EXCITED... :excited:

:icontcshelton:
TCShelton Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2010
That's very interesting. (And neat cause I like hearing how different artists approach things.) I think it's that layering that I'm noticing. So your colors seem less opaque overall. I like it. It's not much different but it gives the colors a little more substance without losing the soft palette.

And I never even really thought to use any of the different blending modes for actual coloring. I'm sort of a one layer on multiply kinda girl. I mostly use the blending options for when I use textures but I might play around with that at some point. :)

:icontemiel:
temiel Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2010  Professional General Artist
I used to do that, but when I was playing around with just the pure digital painting, *ceruleanvii gave me those tips on the different blending modes on the brushes, and since then I've found they can be REALLY helpful.
