A snowscape tutorial for my Advanced Illustration class. My first tutorial, of a character, for that class is in a different format. This time, I'm being different. Hopefully it works out.

    Alaska, 1980s Snowscape Tutorial Alaska, 1980s Snowscape Tutorial Presentation Transcript

    • “ Alaska, 1980s” Walk-through Tutorial By Carly Matlack
    • For my work, I set a one-point perspective vanishing point in the bottom left. Only basic shading is necessary to illustrate the general shapes of the landscape. Make sure there is an established background (mountains, sky, shack), middle ground (the middle 3 telephone poles, trees, hills) and foreground (closest telephone pole). This will help to create depth. Start out with a sketch...
    • The Sky The sky is usually the easiest part of the image, especially when it takes up less than half of the space. I start out with a flat gray color (about 40 or 50%), then I take a lighter color and blotch in some variation in the form of thin, blurred clouds.
    • Mountains – Pt. 1 Mountains are not as easy as they look, but aren't complicated. I start out the mountains by blocking their shape.
    • Mountains – Pt. 2 Rough, light shading is added.
    • Mountains – Pt. 3 I shrink my brush size and make vein-like shapes for areas on the mountain where there is no snow.
    • Mountains – Pt. 4 Refining the shading.
    • Mountains – Pt. 5 To finalize, I add lighter spots.
    • Hills – Pt. 1 These work just like the mountains, only much more simplified. So, what did we do for the mountains, first? Block out the shape.
    • Hills – Pt. 2 The ground is covered in snow and these hills are smooth in shape, so shading is easy. Put in light shading near the bases, since the light is coming from above.
    • Hills – Pt. 3 Smooth out the shapes.
    • House – Pt. 1 Think of the mountains again: basic shape. However, we have to pay attention to the perspective. Make sure the roof is correct.
    • House – Pt. 2 Simple shading.
    • House – Pt. 3 Drawing in light/dark lines to define the boards. They're not very noticeable, but subtle details make things work.
    • House – Pt. 4 Add a shadow from the roof.
    • House – Pt. 5 Darken the roof and cover it with snow.
    • House – Pt. 6 Since there is a bright light coming from inside, take a light gray (10 or 20%) and block out the flat shapes of the windows according to the perspective.
    • House – Pt. 7 Add frames for the windows and door with snow on the tops.
    • Tree – Pt. 1 Block out a rough, jagged shape with a dark gray. Trees aren't as simple as the other parts, though, so I make sure to use reference.
    • Tree – Pt. 2 Add snow to the branches.
    • Tree – Pt. 3 Add shadows and refine.
    • Pole – Pt. 1 Silhouette using a dark color.
    • Pole – Pt. 2 Highlighting and adding lines for a wood texture.
    • Finishing – Pt. 1 Add cables, shadows and lighting (from the shack).
    • Finishing – Pt. 2 Creating a new layer on top, I fill it in with a medium gray. After lowering the opacity to around 61%, I erase over top of the shapes in the middle and foreground.
    • Finishing – Pt. 3 Another layer is added. This time, for snow. Respective sizes of the brush are used for the back, middle and foregrounds.
    • Brush settings – textured_washbrush Used for everything but snow
    • Brush settings – formé_énchantillonnée_3_3 Used for snow
