How I Create Concept art? [Process]

How I Create Concept art? [Process]


Hey guys
嗨 你好 New video coming
又更新了一个视频 This is a new video about digital painting
这个视频是关于数字绘画的一个新的视频 It’s about how I create concept art
主要是有一点点偏向于概念设计 Emmmm
emmmm And a little bit about illustration
这个插画方面的东西 This is an artwork that I done recently
这也是我最近画的一张图 A lot of friends from internet ask me about composition,
然后我看到好多朋友会问我很多关于构图, Creating story and Environment design.
创作和有场景啊一些方面的问题 Actually, this is a very complicated things
那么其实这个东西非常复杂 It’s very difficult, uh, to be specific
是很难,恩,针对性的去讲 like, you ask me” How do you make a composition?”
就是说,你问我说一个构图怎么做? Or“ how to creat this ”
或者说是这个场景怎么画 In fact, different ideas and different contents will have different expressions.
其实不同的这个题材, 不同的内容, 都会有不同的表达方式 So, I think I should be one of this type :
那么我觉得我是应该是属于那种就是 I learned a lot about different approaches
恩,学了很多的这个方法 Or techniques
或者说技巧 So,when I face to different task,
那么在应对某些不同的题材 or style,
不同的内容的时候 I will have a lot of different ways to deal with it
其实会用非常多不同的手法来处理 So this is actually related to your experience
那这个这其实跟你的经验有关系 and your knowledge or technique
也跟你的知识体系有关系 so
其实说到底就是说 If you know the basic law of this thing
你如果知道这个东西的规律 You know what it is
知道它的内容 You can actually use any method you want to show it in the end
那么其实你用任何方法最后都可以把它呈现出来 It’s just different steps and processes
只不过它的步骤和流程不一样而已 Some people like to start with black and white
那有的人喜欢先画黑白 And then I color it
然后上色 And then move on
然后再继续 Others like to do the composition first
还有的人喜欢先做构图 Draw a linework first
先画线稿 These are some really good ways
这都是一些非常好的方法 And I do the same thing
其实我也一样 I’ve tried those approaches
我也试过他们的这些方法 Basically, I use it.
基本上,我也都用 But,
只不过就是说 Actually, I’m try different approaches at different times.
我其实会在很多不同的时候尝试不同的方法 Because I like uncertainty when i create an artwork
因为我喜欢在创作一张图的时候尝试各种不同的可能性 So, this artwork shows you a little bit “end of the world” style . (Like ,Mad max)
那么这张图题材是偏向于有点像末日废土风格的,或者说是世界末日 Robot theme.
这种机器人题材 It’s also because of American culture
也是因为美国文化 They have a lot of similar stuff like this.
美国这边他们的这种题材比较多 It’s also interesting to create or design this kind of stuff.
画这种题材也比较有意思 Because I’m not going to draw the fairy
因为我不会画那些仙侠 ——
或者说比较性感暴露的题材 Because of limited ability
因为能力有限 So I can only create some of my favorite stuff or topic.
所以就只能画一些自己喜欢的题材 I believe in every artist or designer
我相信每一个艺术家或者说是设计师 They all have their own themes and their own creative ways
他们都有自己中意的这个题材和创作手法 I’m actually going to change my approach at every stage
我其实每个阶段,我的方法都会变 Sometimes, black and white first,
有的时候可能是先画黑白 Like,when I started my career
就比如我刚入行的时候 I did so many black and white stuff
我画黑白比较多 And then I think this is too common
然后我觉得这个太普遍了 and we saw a lot of artist doing this way,
其实现在看的多了 So,I think if you’ve been able to do really good black and white
但其实我觉得如果你已经能够做的很好的黑白的话 You can actually try to use color start it
其实你可以直接用色块开始画 It’s a better way to train
这是更好的一种训练方式 This artwork
这个图 I did a process
我做了一个过程 That process video was not recorded
那个过程视频没有录 But I did a simple process
但是我简单的做了一个流程 This is something that I think about before I make a picture
这是我在做一张图之前我会去思考的东西 I’m going to use a lot of different triangles to make a composition
就是说我会用非常多不同的三角形来去做一个构成 Or to determine the structure of a picture
或者是来确定一个画面的一个结构 em
嗯 I didn’t think too much about the topic in the beginning.
当然这个题材可能没有想太多 I just want to start off with a balance and arrangement of these layouts
就一开始只是想要一个画面的一个构成平衡以及这些布局的安排 You don’t have to use triangles
你不一定用三角形 You can do it in any other shapes if you want
你可以用其他形状都可以 Why I like to use triangles because
那我喜欢用三角形的原因 triangle is a very interesting graph
就是说三角形它其实是一个非常有趣的图形 obtuse angle
他的这个钝角也好 sharp angle
锐角也好 It’s very advantageous to point out one of your visual centers
它可以非常有利的指出你的一个视觉中心 sometimes, it’s very good to imply some of the conflicts and interactions in the picture
那么它有时候会很好的去暗示画面当中的一些冲突和互动 If you use a circle or a square, you might not be able to have a tension like a triangle
你如果用圆形或者说用正方形就可能就不一定能够像三角形这么有张力 If you use circles
你如果都是用圆圈 or ellipse
那你椭圆也好 It may not work that well.
可能没有那么效果好。 Square
正方形 Rectangular cube
长方体 Maybe the shape is not as good as the triangle
可能它的那个形状不见得三角形这么直接 Because, the triangle
因为三角形 It has a little bit of a conflict in its own right
它本身就带了一点冲突的那个味道 But, Cube or Cuboid not good for this,
你用正方形和长方体的话 Because there is no contrast
这种就是四四方方比较规矩的 This shape might not be expressed
这个形状的话可能就表达不出来 This is a personal point of view
这是我个人的一点看法 My “triangle” system is not particularly complete
我的这个体系其实还不是特别的完整 I’m not sure if it really has a scientific theory
我也不确定它是否真的具有科学的理论 This is just some attempts I personally summarized
这只是我自己一个人单独思考下想出来的 and I’m still exploring
我目前也在持续的摸索当中 I create artwork use this way
我通过这个方式来做一些创作 Or speedpainting
或者说是涂鸦的时候 I’m gon na use this to verify it
我会用这个方式来验证它的可能性 After that
在这以后 I’m going to think a little bit about the general style or topic
我会稍微考虑下大概的题材风格 What should I prepare
我需要画什么题材 I’m not gon na say I will draw a very good linework and start it
那么也不会说我画一个很精细的线稿 I’m just going to start with color
其实就是说我是直接用色彩来开始的 And that’s basically just going to have a color like this
那基本上就是直接会有一个这样的一个色彩 A very fast color palette
一个非常快速的调色盘 And that’s basically just to make sure the content and the story
那个主要就是确定一下大概的内容和故事 Who is it? where is it?
什么人?在哪里? What are you doing
在干什么 What would they do?
他们会怎么样? Simply ask yourself some simple questions
简单的问自己一些简单的问题 After that
在这以后 you think,
然后, 你就想: to do some of the most basic things around this story:
然后,围绕着这个故事做一些最基本的内容 The perspective and the tone. how strong the tone is
画面的透视和调子的切割。调子的强弱是怎么样的 The contrast between warm and cool colors
画面当中的冷暖颜色对比 Detail contrast
对比 also, I will try some different color,
我也会尝试一些我自己不大用的色调 like this character
就说像这个角色 Actually, the color that I started with, we can see that the color is green
其实,我开始的这个颜色,我们可以看到这颜色是绿色的 So maybe someone won’t start with this color
所以可能有的人不一定会用这个颜色去开始 And then, I’m going to think, if this color is green
然后,我又会想,如果这个颜色是绿的话 Relative to this bluish color
相对于这个偏青色的颜色 It’s warm
它是比较暖的 If I use a cooler color
如果再用一个比较冷一点的颜色 It might not be looks pretty, so I’m going to use a brownish color, and make a very interesting contrast
可能不一定好看,我用的一个偏棕色,就让这个颜色会有一个非常有意思的对比 This is warm
对这个是暖的 Cold
冷的 Warm
暖的 And then there’s a cool and warm color
然后前面又有一个冷色的和这个暖色的 I’m constantly doing a little bit of a balance in this color
我不停的在做这个颜色方面的一个小的一个平衡 Including this background
包括这个背景 This is cold
这个是冷的 This is warm
这个是暖的 In the beginning
一开始 I thought a lot about this.
我觉得这个是我思考比较多的 It’s also an attempt
这也属于是一个尝试 I’m not sure about this color
我不确定这个颜色 I’m gon na use it to the end
我会用到最后 But I’ll think about that at the beginning
这一开始我会这么思考 And then, I will put some different colors on it
然后大概的就是画一些不同的颜色上去 this is a phase where you think about the composition of the picture
这个阶段主要是思考画面当中的这个构成 Basic story
基本的故事情节 The second step, I’m going to add a little bit of detail and some texture
第二个步骤,我会添加一点点细节和一些材质上去 This step
这一步骤 It’s about thinking what kind of environment I need
是关于思考我需要怎样的一个环境 And in this environment,
然后这个环境当中 The intensity of the light and which object is the focal point of the picture
它的光照的强度以及哪一个物体是画面比较重要的一个中心点 for the focal point
那么对于这个中心点 You have to deal with it a little bit better than others
你就要去处理的比较好一点 Or just a little bit more details
或者说是比较在意一点 Through some dense comparisons
通过一些疏密的对比 These things are very dense
这些东西比较密 This place is sparse
这个地方稀疏 This area going to have an interesting contrast
它会有形成一个有意思的对比 And at the same time, this is the position of the golden point
同时,这个位置又是一个黄金分割点的位置 This character
这个人物 I think it’s also possible to express a high saturated, high contrast
我觉得也可以用一个高饱和的一个高对比的概念去表达 So I’m also going to think about what’s in the dark side of the picture
那么同时我也会去考虑哪些地方是处于画面的暗部 Where do I need to enhance texture contrast?
哪些地方是需要我加强材质对比 Where the material is not as strong as it needs to be expressed?
哪里的材质可以不需要表达的那么强烈 You can also find some props or trfs
也可以找一些道具 take a look.
参考图看一下 At this stage, I’m basically thinking about these things.
这个阶段,我基本就是思考这些内容。 A state of adjustment and layout
一个调整和布局的状态 And then, slowly, add more details
然后,慢慢的,加入更多的细节 From the previous step to this step
从从前面这一步到这一步的话 I will think about the contrast between the background and the character
我会思考为这个角色背后希望能够有一点高饱和的颜色的对比 so, I add a little bit of the concept of “fire”
那加入了一些这个“火”的概念 I want it looks tense
那我希望它看起来比较紧张 It looks like there’s a color that’s more saturated
看起来有一个饱和度比较高的一个颜色 And at the same time this robot may become the visual center of a picture
那同时这个机器人他可能就变成了一个画面的视觉中心 I hope he’s more important
我希望他是比较重要的 So this is a robot that I want to have a good visual presentation
所以这个机器人我是希望能够有一个比较好的视觉呈现 At the same time, the person next to the robot
同时,旁边的人 I add a little bit of detail
我也是稍微加了一点点细节 Including this table
包括这个台面上 This is a messy repair desk
这是一个比较凌乱的一个修理台 I thought maybe the story is like ,the robot trying to fix a more important prop
当初想的可能是在修理一个比较重要的道具 And it turns to be a small engine in the end.
最后改变成了一个小的引擎 So after this step,
这一步骤完成以后 More than you need to think about is:
更多的你需要去想的比较多的 Your elements of the picture should not be too scattered
图不能太碎片 There are a lot of details
有些地方细节太多 You can erase the details of some place, or some places need to fill in the details.
你可以擦掉这地方细节,或者有些地方补一点细节。 now
到这个时候 You can see I added some characters
你可以看到,我加入了一些人物 A lot of characteres
非常多的一些人物 It’s about having them interact with each other
就是让他们有一个互动 This is a visual center
这个是一个视觉中心点 So this characters, this characters, that one, these three types of people
那么这些角色,那些角色,这个角色,这三种人 I want to have a visual guide to it
我希望对它有一个视觉上面的一个引导 You can see
你可以看到 This is a very interesting three arrows
这是一个非常有意思的三个箭头 So these three arrows contain a triangle
那么这三个箭头包含出一个三角形 And you can actually view it this way, this character is right at the center of this triangle
其实你可以这样来看,这个角色正好处在这个三角形的中心位置 Then there is a very good visual cue
那么就会有一个非常好的一个视觉上的暗示 A visual guide
在视觉上的一个引导 And you can also add some details for some small items or something that you’re interested in
同时你可以给一些小的物件或者你比较感兴趣的东西 Make them looks more interesting
让它看起来有更有意思一点 And deal with the light, the atmosphere at the same time.
从同时处理一下画面的光线和气氛 The last step, nothing special
那么最后一步,也没有什么特别 Just add more details
就是添加更多的细节 make the texture clearer
材质的处理更清楚一点 You can look see the material in this corner
你可以看一下这个角落的一些材质 I spent a little bit of time on it
我花了一些时间来刻画 Although ,this place is in the dark
虽然这个地方是在暗部 But there are also materials
但是其实也有材质的 And that includes these places
也包括这些地方 You can’t leave the dark part with no material
你不能让暗部没有材质 The dark part requires a certain amount of detail.
暗部需要一定量的细节 So
所以 Including the background, the middle part
包括背景 ,中间的部分 You have to add a little bit more detail
你也要稍微加一点细节 There are some places that are not particularly good
有一些地方并不是特别好 But
但是 Because of the topic and style,
因为本身这个题材的原因 It’s a sense of doom
是一个末日的感觉 This style is decadent
这种这种题材比较颓废 It’s more broken and dirty
比较破败和肮脏 So,a little bit dirty is ok
所以,画面稍微脏一点点也OK It doesn’t matter
没有关系啊 If you’re going to draw a faerie style, kongFu or something that’s a relatively clean style
如果你要画一个仙侠风格,武侠或者说是比较干净的题材 That’s not going to work
那这个就不行了 This is definitely a little messy
这个就绝对会有点乱 There are too many marks on the stroke
笔触的痕迹太多了 If you want to continue working, you can continue.
如果你还想继续画,也可以继续 Finally, I give this role
最后,我给这个角色 You can actually see the shoulder that I gave the robot
其实你可以看到我给这个机器人的这个肩膀 He’s got a little robot on his shoulder
肩膀上面给他加了一个小机器人 I want to be able to lead the picture and make this looks a little bit warmer
我希望能够引导一下画面,变得比较温暖一点 Be cute
可爱一点 This guy is smoking
这个人在抽烟 I painting the cigarettes
香烟也是我画的 This picture
这张图 I didn’t use photobashing, it’s all painted
我没有用任何素材拼贴,全部都是画的 So if you have time
所以你如果有时间 You can do more and do better.
你可以画的更有细节和更完美 If you don’t have the time,
如果没时间 I think that’s enough.
大概点到为止就够了 Because sometimes you don’t have much time to continue,I think.
因为有时候你并不一定你有那么多的时间去画 So, this is my steps and my thinking
这个就是我的步骤和思路 I hope you like it! thanks!
希望你们能喜欢! 谢谢!
