Last week I did Dean, so this week it's Sam's turn. The prompt was a word - villainous. So I had to try Samifer, and then I had to gif it. I'm still not very slick at this animation business but it's fun.

Here's the final frame as a still picture
DW weekly-2 villainous-1.4
And here's some of the process:
I did it all in Photoshop, in spite of having lots of new lovely paper and pretty pens to try out. *sigh*
I used a cardboard texture as my virtual paper, and used a fuzzy brush for some shading, layered it, multiplied it, added a dash of colour burn and a few lines on top.

Then I futzed with this background from a Season 4 BTS shot of Sam because I liked the colours and the red sign. I used Sam's face in this pic as a rough reference for my Samifer's face too, though obviously the expression is different.

And that's about it. I layed up a bit more to add the red eyes and a bit of highlighting, then saved 4 different versions of the final pic to create the gif.

This is so cool! I really love the shot in the gif just before his eyes go full red, and it'st just the smallest glint of light presaging the transition. And I love how vivid and detailed the eyes are in general, coupled with the subtle red highlights at his nose and lips. Amazing. <333

The eyes turned out well, I thought, so thank you! You are eagle-eyed noticing the nose and lips, I toned that right down :D

I can only post a little bit of the process, it would be too boring to see all the layers and steps :D

And yet MORE smexxy! The animation is super cool. Aren't they, at once, frustrating and fun to make??

Evil smexiness... :D I'm sure with practice I could get better at this animation malarkey... if I had the patience!

I can see it! Nice. \o/

The eyes are so pretty! I love the glowy effect. Animated gifs are such a fun component to add to drawings. ^___^

P.S. I love the process pics, especially the first one, which reminds me of that cool scene in The Mummy where the sand forms into a face.
