Join Bert Monroy for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a texture on a shirt, part of Bert Monroy: The Making of Times Square, The People.
In places where you are getting very close to the subject like in this…particular case here, we are looking really close at the blouse.…So we see that there is in fact a fine weave in the blouse right here.…So we are getting real close so we can see that and we see that there is a very…fine weave that's visible. The fabric itself right through there.…So we can start to see it in these different places and we can see how it's…taking on the contours of the fabric as it folds.…So we need to create that kind of an effect.…
Now in another movie I talk about creating that pattern. Here we are going to…actually apply it to a fabric.…So I have another file here where I've just created some simulations of some folds.…Now, we are not going to see the fabric in the dark areas, but we are going to…see it going around the light areas, because in the light areas we will see…through it and see that darkness underneath and so on.…So we need to go in there and apply it.…First we have to decide exactly how these fabrics are folding.…
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.
