Concept art character design digital painting process step by step

Concept art character design digital painting process step by step. Female warrior design continue.

Well, got a few hours to work on it a bit more. And I try to take the painting as far as the time allow me. I was working from the bottom up and try to get the big picture together before I go in for the over all detail. There are lots of problematic areas to be resolved...proportion, values and temperature are really the keys, as far as I am concern at the moment, to make it look alright and take it to the finish line, I hope I can pull it off. Been a busy long week so didn't touch it for a while. I have to pull it thru this time...:P
