Creature Concept design step by step paint over line art

How to paint ogre dragon.  Creature Concept design step by step paint over line art. Here we go again, I am digging out some of the sketches that I did and try to give it a better version or finish it up.

This time, it's some sort of giant dragon type of creatures. It doesn't really look like a typical dragon, just a variation of its kind. We do that a lot when we try to concept creatures and see what kind of stuff we can come up with that look different, but not totally far off.

It was totally fun because I haven't really done any creature in long while.

It's still a work in process and hopefully I will finish it up in a couple more sitting or approximately 3 hours of thinking and couple hours of painting. :)
Here is what I have so far...

How to draw Hulk 2

How to draw Hulk side view. Learn How to draw Comics character The Hulk
Here is another attempt of drawing Hulk. I was having too much fun playing around with drawing and studying muscle groups.

This post contains two videos. :) First video demostrates how to draw and sketch a SuperHero Character Hulk from side view. The video demo shows you a bit of side view male anatomy (arm muscle groups) and dynamics in the positioning of the figure and the details.
Second video is about applying color and paint over. It shows you how digitally color and paint over Hulk drawing. This drawing video demo shows you a bit of essential foundation of digital painting such as values and color on the HULK.

A bit about Hulk, he was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, the character first appeared in The Incredible Hulk #1 (May 1962). The Hulk is cast as the emotional and impulsive alter ego of the withdrawn and reserved physicist Dr. Bruce Banner. The Hulk appears shortly after Banner is accidentally exposed to the blast of a test detonation of a gamma bomb he invented. Subsequently, Banner will involuntarily transform into the Hulk, depicted as a giant, raging, humanoid monster, leading to extreme complications in Banner's life. Lee said the Hulk's creation was inspired by a combination of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and Frankenstein.

Bounce light or Under lighting tutorial

Bounce light or Under lighting tutorial from experiment and painting around.

I thought I finished the "Agent Pink" (Anime girl) since the last post, but I could not help looking back at the piece I did prior to this "Rogue Sword" aka Samurai girl here Digital painting process character. Then I thought how would I make it at least up to the par or could it possibly be better in term of artistic execution.
So I had to repaint the "Agent Pink" and it take me a while to figure out how to turn this one in to something that is NOT realistic looking but a good looking piece.
So I start playing around and give it under lighting or bounce light, changing the background color, then everything sort of comes together in the end. Then I really like how the bounce light I painted turn out, especially on her green form fitting suit. Then I struggle with the face so I thought I changed her expression and it works! It takes a lot of experimenting, thinking and time. You can go watch video and step by step process draw and color Anime girl step by step on the previous post.

Hope you guys also like the latest version of "Agent Pink" (Well, I thought I would just give it a new name)

Bounce light by definition
Light bounced into a reflective surface (a wall, a ceiling, a studio umbrella, a card) to illuminate a subject with softer light, reducing harsh shadows. The color of the reflective surface will determine the color of the light bounced into the subject.
Bounce lighting can also be created by reflecting light off a ceiling or an reflective floor. Given that bounce lighting can only work through reflection, it also, by definition, tends to be used in more confined, smaller areas where such reflection is possible. Larger areas can’t trap light as well and, therefore, are not the best spaces for it to be utilized.

Bounce lighting is a form of ambient light because, like ambient light, bounce light indirectly illuminates the central object. Not only does it create a more natural feel to a scene, but it also lends a degree of warmth and serenity to the picture.

Here is the one with the bounce light: "Agent Pink"
anime girl, hitman, bounce light
Here is a bigger version of "Agent Pink"

Figure study female form step by step process

Figure study female form step by step process.

It's been a while since I did painting study of female figure. So I decided to do one or maybe a few quick figure painting study of a female body form. It was kind of rusty to begin with, struggle in the middle since it's been a long while. But after a couple hours in, it seems a bit easier but the result comes very close to what I want. I just want to study simple form of painting, not really going for the all the way realistic approach.
Note to take on this one is that, I should have established more edges to get the image looks really painterly and smooth.
I should try again soon.
I start off with drawing or sketch to constructed the shape and form where I will be painting over. I am looking for the post that are interesting enough to look at rather than static. Then I use soft edge round brush to establish values then skin-tone for the figure. As it progress, the softer look become more define using hard edge round brush. I hardly use any custom brush on this one, it's just a study to sharpen my skill on figure painting.

For beginner, you might want to look at the How to draw female body torso step by step (This one explain how to construct a body in the simple way for anyone to understand and how to draw woman figure hip pelvis (easy way to construct body and the hip which is very crucial in conveying feminine figure). Also gestures figures video tutorial and learn how to draw woman sheet.

Also check out the video tutorial go watch Drawing body muscle torso anatomy tutorial. And Drawing arm muscles bicep tricep There will also be some basic include there. Then you could try out the following tutorial.

Digital Painting tutorial video and step by step Court Lady

Digital Painting tutorial court lady video and step by step.


I know it's been almost a week since I update any drawing or painting...been busy with the Manga comics. And of course work at ArenaNet :)
Now, this tutorial turns out nicely. One of my better ones. It doesn't take long and turn out the way I want. Surprisingly that doesn't really happen a lot because we all want to push it even further as an artist. The more we paint and draw the more experience, we tend to see more mistake and how it should have been better. Anyway, here is a painting of a court lady...part of a small project I am working on.


So if you like this video here are some of the video that have similar content just a bit different in presentation digital painting tutorial sleeping beauty. Another is Digital painting female character red and the recent pieces Drawing Tutorial Zombie ninja character
But if you are looking for more specific study of anatomy then watch Drawing body muscle torso anatomy tutorial. And Drawing arm muscles bicep tricep There will also be some basic tutorial links include there.


Also as I mention values (shades, light) comes before colors. These are the more fundamental video that you should watch Learn digital drawing and painting (this one focus on face of a female profile and emphasis on values establishment.) How to draw woman top view from the slightly top angle, not extreme just a little tilt. How to draw Manga girl character (don't be deceive by the name, this one show how to establish values really well.) And at last Sketch character design Villain (A male character demo focus on facial design)

Mecha Mega Robot update almost done!

Mecha Mega Robot update almost done!

Here is the 4th of the Mecha MEGA Robot visual character concept art process UPDATE (there are previously posted of part 1: Mecha Robot step by step drawing, part2 Painting Mech process tutorial and part 3 Giant Robot drawing and painting process). I try as much as I can to finish it up this weekend but unfortunately...I can only find a few hours to play with it. I amped up the Machine gun, changed and tweak the design a little bit on the bottome half. It's been a really fun session creating mech since I haven't really done a full launched Mecha in a long while. A few more painted session then I think I will call it done.

ART tips: Talent is often overrated, and often deceive you. Whether you have it or not, forget that it's there. Practice, practice, and practice is only one sure way I know will make me the better artist.

The Mega Mech is almost there
Here are step by step recap
