Here's a preview of what goes on behind the scenes. My process work is very simple. It just takes three basic stages!
|STAGE 1: Thumbnails|
For this particular commission, I had to draw an elf which resembled the client's friend. The necessary details that I had to add within the piece were the squirrel coat of arms and the two swords. I really enjoy this stage of the process because it allows me to draw loosely and freely. I don't have to worry about the details. I just have to make sure that the thumbnails portray what the client may want and that they were understandable. Drawing thumbnails are great composition studies. I always make sure that there is clear directional movement in the composition. You can also use this stage to determine your lighting and shading.
|STAGE 2: Line work|
|STAGE 3: Colour|
So there you have it. Pretty basic stuff!
