Welcome in making a speed illustration tutorial. This is actually for tablet users: if you don’t have one – well either it

will take you 10 times longer, or don’t even try, but read it anyway.



So I will create a document and a layer. I will fill the layer with dark green color because white is too shiny to watch.

The next good thing is that you can actually is that you can control the contrast of color by changing the opacity of the

layer.

Begin to sketch with a basic round rough brush. I usually start from the head.

Then comes the head. I’m doing it without painting the skeleton and I also changed the proper proportions so the head could

feel bigger – something like dragon ball z characters.

And I really don’t like to paint with contours – but it is very good practice – gives you form restrains and , well you got

to do it even if you don’t like to.

Messed up with the mouse I guess.

Maybe a good thing will be to drop some value – actually I think that in environments firstly, and not only playing with the

lights before you get to color things is a very good method.

Line drawing is set to multiply that means that you can create the layer beneath and paint on it leaving all the black

(outline) information untouched.

Next step will be the coloring of the character.
Here is my palette.
I’m sticking to “traditional” skin gamma.

Beginning to refine the image: Getting rid of all the rough lines.

Refining the rest of the image – actual when you are doing some big work always refine the entire image – even if you don’t

like it. I mean keep all the elements on the same level of details at a time.

I decided that the hair has to be white.

Some patters for the cloth. I use a custom brush for that, along with warp and mapping it on the cloth itself.


girl


Use soft brush along with low flow jitter and some light color to render the face.

I really like to change those lips and also give some king of ‘expression’ to them.

Soft glow on the hairs and we are done with painting a little fantasy character tutorial.

I hope you enjoyed this one and I also hope I covered all the necessary steps on the painting.
