been two years in the making, but I finally got around to cutting together the final video of my making of Jay Z illo! One thing to note is how seamlessly Photoshop and Painter work. I did this illustration when I was still becoming comfortable with Painter.
That being said, I spent a good bit of time rendering Jay using Adobe Photoshop CS3. I worked the background and painted over Jay using Corel Painter 11. Also, I used several different picts of Jay Z and lighting shots of myself to get the mood of this one. If you look closely, you’ll catch them.
Here is how the finished painting appeared in the magazine.
Note: The soundtrack is pretty tame, but you might want to turn it down if there are kids watching, a few words got by me.
Now I need to get ready for my Painter 12 tutorial tomorrow! Hope you can join me, I have something special planned! if you like this piece, Please comment and Share!
