Digital Painting Process Character Rogue Samurai Swordsman Update


Digital Painting Process Rogue Samurai Swordsman Update.

Here is an update on the image I worked on for fun. I notice something I should mention. Usually the first half hour of painting is more like a warm up for me, so does in drawing. During the time, things usually but not always don't come together as well as I expect.
But things started to pieces together after that, it is usually goes really well when I have about an hour in and then taper off after a few hours.
So currently I spend the first half hour doodling and studying on other image as a warm up before I start painting the project that I left off mid way. I found it gives me better result instead of jumping in right away without warming up. I notice that in life drawing also, I usually have to spend about 15 minutes struggling to get where I think I should be. In case you missed, you can look at the previous post for step by step digital painting tutorial Rogue Samurai

Another tip is that I could work on a few images at the same time, then alternate them as I feel like what I want to work on at times. This way you won't get sick of just working on one image. On the plus side, you could found some idea while working on environment for your character concept or the other way around.

Art Tip: "Decide what is in light and what is in shadow and don’t mix them up. Think like a comic artist. Two values, but if they are well thought out and designed and drawn they can look totally real." Craig Mullins

Here is the update images on "Rogue Swordsman" or should I say "Swordsgirl"?
