Ain’t clitoris that big red dog

Thats clifford babe. Clitoris is that guy who flew too close to the sun and his wings melted

no no you’re thinking of icarus. Clitoris is a part of a song that is repeated after each verse.

No that’s Chorus. Clitoris is a candy made from the root Glucyrrhiza glabra.

No. You’re thinking of licorice. Clitorus is Sherman Klump’s dad on the Nutty Professor.

Building Simplicity - 11/11/2008

Posted by Natiq Jalil on Sunday, June 12, 2011 Under: Retro blogs
I am sometimes asked how I do what I do. This isn't a question easily answered in words. So I thought that I might share a little bit of the madness with you. This is how I went about completing the poster art for Simplicity, one of the main characters for 'Full Circle.' I used photoshop CS3 and a WACOM Graphire (which I am sure wants a break after dealing with me so often). This piece took me about 14 hours total to complete. Hopefully, the results are worth the time. Please feel free to tell me what you think...

I always start out with a rough sketch in blue. Why blue? Why not?

Simplicity-1-Line-Art 

The first thing I color is the skin, always. I color on a new layer in Multiply, so I can still see the lines underneath.


Simplicity-1dark-skin

Next, I usually do the bulk of the clothing. In this case, a dress and sandals.

 Simplicity-1dark-skin-and-dress

Now I do her hair. I rarely ever sketch the hair out exactly the way I want it for some reason. So I kinda create it here in this step as I see fit.
 
Simplicity-1dark-skin-and-dress-and-hair

At this stage, I add design elements to the clothing and build the nearest background elements, to make sure the image still has balance. Or at least, that's what I tell myself.
 
Simplicity-1dark-skin-and-dress-updated

Now, I'm making the executive decision to simplify my life and spare you the boring details of building walls on a computer. At this stage I build the rest of the background from nearest to farthest, and add any tiny details I missed before. Drop in the logo, sign my name, throw a tat on her foot and voila! Finished! Tired as hell and want to sleep for weeks.

Simplicity-1
 

Well, if you made it through all of that, thanks for spending time with me. Let me know what you think. If you didn't make it through it, I don't blame you. Once again, I would like to thank my homegirl, Sasha, in Florida, (who will probably never even see this blog) for letting me use her nickname to complete this character. Please feel free to leave any comment, critiques or questions you feel like. Thanks again for visiting.
