THE MUNSTER MASH - 8 steps to making my idea feel more real.

8 steps to making my idea feel more real.

THE MUNSTER MASH - M2 Extreme sports of the not so distant future.

Tank + Bulldozer + racing = HIGH SPEED EXTREME JUMPING TANKS M2

 I know I am showing my age. I loved this car growing up, wanting to catch a glimpse in the intro or anytime used in the car. The early show was black and white and colour wasn't revealed until later series / when colour TV was invented. So, like most things I do, they have my influence in my concepts.. Now I don't totally feel like that now, but thought it was a cool idea to give them an identity.

Below are the colouring steps:

These were painted over 4 hours after a 45 min pencil rule out of the main design, bolts and details.
1)Scan the linework in and resize (crop) to suit what you imagined. I see no problem in resizing things to get your image working for you to get your concept 100%.

2) Get the basic colour for the associated areas on The Munster Mash (TMM). One of my favourite parts. This is when it becomes more real. Then motivates me to make it look badass.

I have only been using Photoshop for 2 years. It is an achievement for me to be using it. I read ImagineFX and have for a few years before I even picked up a pen and used a tablet. But it has motivated me to begin with. Top magazine. Always hours of tutorials, I still go back and use. Even from when I started reading in 2011.




3) Colour all the areas of the (TMM) add hazards and munster badges.


4) Add roughed brushes to (TMM) and give a variation.


5) Then I play with the hue, add a basic oily diesel look to (TMM) .


6) I like to add basic shadow to (TMM) .

 7) Then add some small shadows to give (TMM) more depth



8) Resize to fit the page final touch ups on shadow, and brush the background to give it more depth .

The final result (TMM) THE MUNSTER MASH.
