Snake in the water

Sort of random one this week.  Did a lot of studies so to do something that didn't require too much effort  I did this.  It started with a  screengrab then painted over. I am going to work on studies for September and to keep me honest I plan to stream on Twitch.  I will be under this name so stop by and say hello.

Had to finish this one up before I left for Industry Workshops.  Another character requested by smrvl.  It stayed pretty close to the sketch but I think the sketch is a bit more moody.  The maps are based on some 17th and 18th century real maps -  beautiful to look at.  
That is it for full on characters for now.  I will keep working on them but I want to shift focus to environments and work on a process for them.  
  I was at Industry workshops at the weekend which definitely gave me some food for thought.  I will share some of what was on show in a later post.

Goliath paladin sketch 

Late posting cos this one was a battle.  The request was  for a Goliath paladin by grandbaby-buffalo.  The sketch was but the first step.  Spent a long time messing with the goat.  Could still be more menacing.

Swashbuckler

 Still working on the characters. Barbarian fairy was done for vicar1492.  The sketches are done roughly in half an hour.  After that it lines flat colour and shading.  If I need to render further I would do a value pass - greyscale then colour and soft light layers. I may bring the swashbuckler character further but I still have a backlog of sketches.  For now I will keep working on this process.
