final for an oorlark:he's getting chased!
I finish by adding some reflective light and speedlines :)
Pencil sketch (from my sketchbook>scan>photoshop) ;then Colour on separate layer
Tone plus detail,then little texture
Start to work on putting my creature in a place/scene/background. I started by just “sketching” with color and then used reference pictures like forrest and caves.
final image of shayal concept:
This one was all done digitally from start to finish :D and as with all my painting ,it was done with my mouse J
First thing I usually start with is the head when I’m painting like this cos I love painting them!
In a way the head defined how the rest of the body would work out, I did have a picture of a hunch back creature though
I’ve clearly seen what its going to look like so I just start adding more tone .
Then background..as I continue painting I see other things that can be added so I do!
After lots of experimentations with layers of background colours n stuff, I settled for this J
