04. Volume + outline:
On my first post of the year I wanted to show you what I’m doing at the moment. Most of my spare time is spent painting Dwarven Heroes. It is still very early but you can see more or less some different stages on the illustration. I’m still unsure if I’ll keep some of the original line at the end. I quite like the outline look but I’ll have to see how it blends with the rest of the illustration when is finished.
After giving volume to the dwarfs I’ll start bringing the background to life; I’ll save details and textures for the final touches – saving the best for last!
I’m throughly enjoying painting this illustration, I’m taking my time and not rushing it a bit. I suppose it is the advantage when you work on something with no deadlines. I have enough about deadlines at work!
As I mentioned on a previous post, I have a lot of ideas for future illustrations I’m sketching; but I’ll save those for another time
Next month this blog will be a year old. I’m planning something special and it will involve you -Warhammer fans. I’ll keep you updated!
