Draw and color woman and monster creature concept Drider, Spider Demon

How to draw drider creature. Manga Tutorial How to draw and color face Character Creature step by step sketch for comics, manga and video game. This character design Concept Art process is just one of those out of nowhere, based on many ancient fantasy epic fairy tale about deadly spider demons. Spider (like snake) are depicted as symbol of evil and have their own right to many scary tales all over the world; China, Japan, Greek, etc.

I am again attempt to find a balance between beauty and creepy, soft motherly feminine and deadly and poisonous. I think life is a paradox, and so do beautiful women. At the time I was thinking along the line of what if I visit hell then I met its' princess. How do I make it so mystical, scary, and beauty. I make a feel concept like this a while back, they are my favorite things to do and paint.

Here is a quick process of drawing and painting Spider Demoness:

1) I do a rough sketch in my sketchbook, once in a while I will scan a batch in. This I just did yesterday, but I feel like painting it so I scanned it in right after. Sometimes some idea just cannot wait. :)

2) After scanned it in, I cropped it to get the composition I want.

3) Then I add background color using overlay or multiply...doesn't matter whatever gets the job done. Then I use darker color to separate the silhouette of the body out from the background.

5) Color them away...get the base color idea of what I want them to look like.
6) Assigning value along with the on going color.

I REALLY enjoy reading and watching your process! Do you prefer to do the sketch, then scan and than color, rather than doing the line work directly on the pc?
Personally with the pencil and a sheet of paper I feel more confortable, and you?

Thanks man and keep posting- you're of great help!

Luca said...

Also Xia just wanted to ask you, when you sketched this for the first time, you did it good straight away? also do you study the spider or any other kind of animal before you start sketching (reference pictures)??
Thanks king! "_"

Personally I found that the best result most often comes from doing at least some research.

It always helps when you got some idea of what you want to make.

I'd like to wine and dine this pretty lady.

XIA said...

Luca> Good question, I personally really like sketching on Sketchbook, but I don't mind the computer sketch.
Either ways, work. As for the ref, Knuckle is right, research is the key to do anything especially in the professional environment. You will also learn something new also.

desain grafis> Thank you sir! You are very kind.

Knuckle> Thanks brother, right on the spot. At least one! the more the better, I second that.

Chris> Beautiful ladies come with a BIG prize. I only suggest hit and run, but don't stay. Because you might get to see the side you don't want to see and you can even comprehend or imagine :)

XIA said...

Chris> I meant can't (mis-spelling again.)

Chris said...

You mean, she'll make me do the washing up?

XIA said...

Chris> Or worse...like "Domestication" is probably one of the worst things ever happened to male specie.
Do you think "marriage" is a male idea or institution? probably not. :)
