Random Doodles Pt.2

For this one I wanted to show you roughly how I go through making my title backgrounds.

In my last post I showed you this design which I had been working on for the title background of an Arabic makeup series I want to do.

Once I’ve drawn roughly what I want I take a picture and work on it in Photoshop, I tend to make several versions of a piece till I settle on my favorite.

The first few tries are always rubbish, but after trying a few times I finally get it to look how I want it to.

Normally when I finish working on a piece I leave it alone for a few hours and then look at it again.

When you’ve been working on something for a few hours you tend to miss all the flaws and it’s only by taking a step back or getting a second opinion that you’ll see what needs improvement.

My main beef with this one is that all the patterns I had drawn had just gotten “lost”, also I wasn’t overly fond of the colour.

I wanted the colour to look like the light from a sunset in the desert on a palace wall, and this just didn’t quite cut it.

I had a similar issues with this version.

The colours were just too much and not subtle at all, also the patterns were completely lost and not as noticeable as I wanted them to be.

I finally settled on this one,  I might tweak it a bit more before I use it in a video but overall it’s got the feel I’m looking for :)

    I prefered the last version too, although honestly I like the original much better, it shows that you drew it from scratch. Or maybe it’s just me in love with black and white.

    Looking forward to Arabic tutorials! :D

    I like the original and the last. :D This is so cool. I love how you just use photoshop to tweak everything. :) I like how the last looks very metal copper-y. LOL.

    I’ve got to say I’m really impressed by the amount of effort you put into your videos, I’m sure it’ll pay off one day :)
    I really like the first & last versions, what effects did you use in Photoshop to make it look metallic?
