DARRRCULA! is the latest image from the RRR creature series. This image was done the same way the other RRR images have been created. Starting with modeling and coloring the head (which was made out of Sphere3D) then ‘snapshot’ the object and using the various brushes in order to add fine details.
I usually try to work in document size that would be 1.5 to 2 times larger then the final image size. When modeling I do give initial coat of paint to the actual model and later I will create a large size texture and use combination of 3D painting and 3DCopy to add the details to the texture. Final color details are added after I snapshot the object (when you snapshot an important object into the canvas, it is a good practice to place a marker and save the object at that stage). If for some reason I decide that the size/orientation/position of the object need to be changed, I use the marker and the 3DCopy function to ‘copy’ the colors from the canvas back into the object’s texture.
Below is an image that shows the 3D object and its texture just before taking a snapshot, on the right is a portion of the image in actual size.
