Making of Spartan

I did this work to explain to you the use of Photoshop brushes and the software Poser for image manipulation. I referred to a wallpaper of the movie ‘300’. The first challenge I faced was to create a human figure which I did using Poser.

I did this work to explain to you the use of Photoshop brushes and the software Poser for image manipulation. I referred to a wallpaper of the movie ‘300’. The first challenge I faced was to create a human figure which I did using Poser.

Now, though it sounds simple, let me tell you that there was a lot of work involved…

I started my work with the image that you can see above.

However, I wanted my figure to be lifelike and original. So I duplicated the figure and applied saturation mode on one layer and saturation mode on the other layer which gave me the next image

But don’t you think he looks a bit too simple…well, I felt so too…

So I decided to use Tattoos to decorate him as Tattoos help to bring in the tribal look effectively.

I used tattoo brushes and warped it with Transform Warp tool to draw the tattoos which gave me the figure you seen below.

Well, no warrior can be found without wounds, right.

At least, so I felt, and to get the look right, I got the scratch marks, black eye and wounds on his stomach using few brush strokes. Now that makes him look like a true warrior.

The next idea was to present him with ornaments and a shield. I created an earring for him, and duplicated the image of the earring to create a nose ring as well. Well, if you look hard, you will see that the necklace is also a combination of the earring image. To finish the look, I created a few bracelets as well as shield for him. Now, he looks ready to fight anyone who would mess with him.

Now that the warrior was ready, I had to create a suitable background for which I came up with a nice sky texture…

To accentuate the effect, for which firstly, I brought in the thunder effect into the picture which you can see in image below

Secondly, I got the bats to hover around him by using an Adobe Photoshop brush which I applied once and copied a number of times, followed by transforming it which gave me next.

But even though the warrior was ready to fight, I felt that there was something missing. Well, it was my favourite fantasy colour tone which I brought in by making a hue saturation adjustment layer and applying it to the figure, which gave me the final image
