After many hours of work, I finally finished another piece for Salt Lake Comic Con this September! Introducing Jedi Merida! Because you know that deep down, you really wanted to see it. And just for fun, I posted my process.
SKETCHING. Nothing is more important than starting off with a sketch. I usually trace over my line work in photoshop to help preserve the original idea I had.
After completing the basic line work, I started some basic painting, mainly to see where I want the color palette to go and what looks best. I also played with lighting.
After settling on a color palette, I refined the painting and added some more details, i.e. the family crest, blush on the face, etc. I also changed up my lighting and refined that.
After some more tweaking and finally deciding that it was too much to paint a tartan design on a time crunch, the piece is completed!
