Diablo 3 Demon Hunter digital painting tutorial

Diablo 3 Demon Hunter digital painting video tutorial and step by step images. Here is another speed painting inspired by a Diablo 3 Demon hunter video demo I saw a couple weeks ago. What attracts me to the character is that the dark mysterious vibe. It looks very cool so I feel like I have to do my speed painting version of the Demon Hunter.

Here is a description of a Demon Hunter class in Diablo 3. They call themselves the demon hunters, a group of fanatical warriors sworn to a single purpose: the destruction of the creatures of the Burning Hells. The demon hunters number in the hundreds and make their home in the Dreadlands so that they can live and train without the interference of any nation that would worry over having such a fearsome group camped within its borders (though at any time over half are dispatched across the world like this girl, seeking hellspawn). There is something in all demon hunters that gives them the strength to resist the demonic corruption that would drive lesser men to madness. They hone this power, for their resistance to this taint enables them to use the demons' power as a weapon. But their mission and their power are not all that bind them together.

As usual, I start out with scribble lines to find the pose. Then I established shape or silhouette and along the way I also try to get the lighting direction on top of it. When I figured out where the light source is coming from, I will establish basic value all around the painting. Once I have the basic value in place or close, I will then refine it more and make sure that it is as correct as it could be. Then I will start apply color and paint over the value sketch.
As for using custom brushes, do not worry so much about what kind of brushes I am using. Just focus on what kind of edges will the particular custom brush produces. There can be pretty much three types of edges from using your brushes, not more. Custom brush strokes can give you hard edge, soft edge and lost edge so you have to know how to utilize them. Thought there are custom brushes that will give you like a stamp on result like tree brushes, leaves, etc. Those are totally in the different category because they will give you actual silhouette of objects.

Fun Fact: I almost decided to join Diablo 3 development team at Blizzard back in 2007, but I was too lazy to pack up and move south to California.  That could have been fun.  Huge impressive company though.  ;-)
