Head full of Space -WIP- by DestinyBlue Head full of Space -WIP- by DestinyBlue
You guys ask a lot to see WIPs and in progress things. Well technically this isn't a progress screenshot, I was experimenting with a piece and I thought it looked really cool, but isn't the route I'm taking the drawing down (because it's frankly not relevant to the meaning or story of the picture) I was just having fun playing around and I love the way it turned out and wanted to share :)

To make this effect:
I used a starscape photograph (with thanks to STScI [link]) and placed it over the drawing I already sketched and shaded, I then set the layer mode to multiply and set opacity to 30%, I then duplicated that layer and changed the layer mode to Screen. I did it in SAI, but almost any digital art program it'll work for. Feel free to try it yourself! I'd love to see your results :)

Yeah, as this isn't working WIP crits arn't rquested thanks as the 'real' picture is a different direction and he face already looks much better than it does in this :)
My brain is exploding with creativity and ideas at the moment, I sketched out 6 ideas the other night, this being one. Just need to focus on finishing one! XD

The cosmos is just so inspiring :heart:

If you would like to see any tutorials from me please vote or comment on my new poll: [link]

YOU GUYS ARE SO SUPER AWESOME AND I APPRECIATE YOU ALL :glomp:

Hi

I have a small question. How do you do the neon, glowing effect.? If a character like light. I can't figure out. I was looking for some guides, but I found nothing.
