Just something I had done for fun months ago. I did revisit it the other night and repainted Mercy a bit more than before. Though now the SoothSayer looks out of place without having a similar repaint, but still showing it. Might go back one day and do the SoothSayer or not, who knows. As far as Mercy I did a repaint for her but largely didn’t touch the wings too much. When doing the repaint I tried to keep to the original work. This is not simply adjustment layers. Used paintbrush, mixer brush and others to achieve the end result. More could be done (and probably should be done) but its finished as far as I am concerned for a for fun showing (so guess not a complete repaint )
Added Photoshop file (the layers are messy) : http://www.filedropper.com/gemsofwarshcomm -The old Mercy is labeled ‘Mercy original’ at the top of the layer list. Click it on/off to see the changes.-
It is a minor repaint (meaning could use more work but I don’t spend great time on for fun/free work). I also try to keep often times close to the original work. Otherwise its not a ‘repaint’ but a variant. The original used harsher shadows/lighting I smoothed and softened that out especially. I also changed the shadows/lighting lightly across the chest and midsection given the angle of the light source. And added a bit of that same difference to the hand holding the staff. Of course not the only things done and one can view the Photoshop file to see the rest.
A key thing to remember about repaints when doing them. While you can change some things (usually minor fixes), largely the work remains close to the original. IE if you repaint a family photo. You do not suddenly make your grandmother a gothic biker. You adjust the shadows/lights, fix some flaws seen in the capture, etc.
P.S. I do tend to merge some layers and did in the Mercy paint folder. Though largely its heavily broken apart, which I usually merge as well once I am okay with it. I left it unmerged.
