Dwarf Process Tutorial by Wildweasel339 Dwarf Process Tutorial by Wildweasel339
This is a short process walkthrough for this illustration here: [link]

I am trying a different style than I'm use to. This is hardly a perfect image, but maybe you too can learn something from my mistakes.

Really great! Love seeing your process and a new style from you. How do like it versus your standard procedure? Both styles are really awesome btw.

Looking at the last two is an interesting illustration of the power of value contrast. In the second-to-last, my eye flips back and forth between the blade and the face -- I can't look at one without being drawn to the other. In the finished version my eye can rest on the face and explore the expression there, and only occasionally wander down to the blade and the tip of the blowing cloak. The moon really settles the elements into place.

Thanks for posting that process! I always learn something from you in these.

Yea the the blade gave me a lot of trouble, and I'd say its still a weak point of the image. Before adding the moon, the image did seem to lack a focus. I probably could have darkened and subdued the blade into shadow more, but the moon is sort of an alternate solution I guess. It serves as a spot light.

Thanks!

Do you always start in pencil and scan?

No actually, I usually start with digital. This was break from my typical routine.
