Concept Illustration process tutorial, painting woman, Blondie with double pistols. Work in progress.

Concept Illustration process tutorial, painting woman, Blondie with double pistols PART 1. It is a work in progress of an illo that I am working on as an experimental personal project.
This one starts out as a quick concept idea of action pose. I just want to dome up with something different that what I usually do by putting more movement and shadow casting onto the figure. Also I want to spend longer time than 20 to 30 minutes (That what I usually do with almost all of the Free Video Tutorials on this blog), and actually do some decent painting sketch and growth as an artist. Anyway, you will probably more of these longer sketch from now in recent post. Hope you guys can learn from it the same way as previously are or better.

Anyway, here are step by step process: From line drawing sketch to under painted color sketch.

step 1)

step 2)

step 3)
To be continued in the next post: Part 2

Looking amazing so far. Can't wait to see the finished drawing, Xia.

Just wanted to drop by and say that you've really inspired me to start drawing again. I've always had a talent for it, but I was never an expert.

I've learned a lot on this website and hope I continue to do so in the future.

I will continue to do so until someone banish me from the web. :O
I am glad I can help the potential...may someday you will get what you wish for. Good luck and thanks again.
