It’s been quite some time since I did a scenery tutorial so I decided to do one (:
Today’s scenery will be inspired by this photo:
For this scenery we’re going to start out with a black background.
The first thing we must determine is what angle to place the head at. I drew a line on the picture and my doll to help figure this out:
On the picture you can see the line is about a 45 degree angle, so then I just had to rotate my doll until it was also at the same angle.
Then I moved my doll to the center of the scenery, because having symmetry always makes a scenery look better. So now we’re going to work on her left arm. The first thing you should notice about this arm is how close it is to her chin. The next thing you should notice is the angle of her arm.
Taking these things into account, the arm should be placed like this:
Now we place another arm in to bend it like this:
Now we move on to the right arm.
When doing the first part of this arm you have to be careful that the head does not overlap the left arm:
Now this is where it gets tricky. It’s really challenging to put the last part of the arm in place with out covering the other parts that you want. So I put the arm down a few layers, but I had to keep it above the first part of the left arm (or else it would go behind the other head).
This is a sacrifice I had to make, but it is easily blended in. Now I have to cover up everything I don’t need. Let’s take a look at what I do need:
Keeping in mind what we do need, I’ll cover up what we don’t need.
Now I am well aware that this does not look to fab, but once your put clothes on it’ll look a lot better (:
Now for complex poses it's best to use objects as clothes, like I did above. Now just add a few items, maybe tying in a theme, and a tile:
"If only we had more time..."
And tada! you're done! I hope you enjoyed this tutorial! How did it compare to my previous ones?
