Sunflower

Another illustration in an ongoing project. Once again I flirted with using Blender3D to explore the lighting (including some transmission through the sunflower petals) and get some nice selection mattes for the later painting stages using cryptomatte. Before moving to photoshop to colourise, warp and otherwise tease the base render into shape. I then moved into Clip Studio Paint to finish the detailed painting with renewed confidence.
