Join Bert Monroy for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating the look of stitched denim, part of Bert Monroy: The Making of Times Square, The People.
What we are going to do here is create the jeans that John Knoll is wearing…right here and create it complete with the stitching and all the worn effects and so on.…So right here we have a blank screen and I am going to go in here and create…the basic shape that's going to be the jeans.…So right here is going to be the pocket, this is the pocket area, and we are…going to come over here and create this little down here and just come over and…up and this is going to be a little irregular through here.…
And then close it off right there.…Right so this is the just basic shape of what's going to be the denim.…Now, I am going to go in there and create a series of lines which are going to…kind of follow this edge a little bit, slightly different in certain spots.…So it starts to not look so rigid and basically what this is going to be is the stitching.…So, I am going to go in here and just let me grab these points down here.…Bring it down and then just continue.…We are just going to go in here and just follow along this edge, like so.…
In this installment, The People, Bert illustrates how he created the hyperrealistic portrayals of the dozens of people inhabiting his painting, many of which he drew from real-life friends and family. The course shows how to construct eyes, lips, ears, and other facial features, paint natural looking skin, add hair, apply makeup, and create fabric folds, stitching, and texture to emulate clothing. Bert shows how digital artists can recreate these effects at home, using the tools in Photoshop and Illustrator and a little imagination.
