Ghost Boi | And Drawing Tutorial Steps

in art •  last month


A southern bayou state ghost wolf summoning his flame powers.

This is a flat color toony style commission for BAnthonyLedet on Twitter. It's fun to draw a theme you can relate to considering I'm from the bayou state. ;)

My Layer Layout

  • Foreground Folder
    • Flameballs layer
    • Lineart layer
    • Color Folder (Masked to Base Color layer.)
      • Quaternary Color layer
      • Tertiary Color layer
      • Secondary Color layer
    • Base/Primary Color layer
  • Extra Sketch layer
  • Fine Sketch layer
  • Rough Sketch layer
  • Canvas Background layer (Neutral color like grey.)

  • Canvas Prep/Rough Sketch

    Layers Used:
    Canvas Background layer
    Rough Sketch layer

    Have a neutral colored canvas background, then rough sketch in the basic shapes of the character and his pose.


  • Fine Sketch

    Layers Used:
    Fine Sketch layer

    Afterwards, sketch in a finer sketch over the roughes to detail it.


  • Lineart

    Layers Used:
    Foreground Folder -> Lineart layer

    After client approval, the linearts can be drawn over the sketching.


  • Base/Primary Color

    Layers Used:
    Foreground Folder -> Base/Primary Color layer

    With the contiguous "wizard" tool, select all areas outside the character's parameters, invert the selection, then fill in the area with the character's primary color.


  • Detail Color

    Layers Used:
    Foreground Folder -> Color Folder -> (Folder's color layers)
    Foreground Folder -> Flameballs layer

    Then simply add in the character's other color details.


Draw in the fireballs with an airbrush tool. I use "FX_glow_add" tool in Krita.


  • Background/Final Check/Final Result

    Layers Used:
    Canvas Background layer
    (Various layers)

    Finally, whiten the canvas background then check over the drawing for any details that need editing.


Then the drawing is completed!

Enjoy the pic! :)

What a cool and interesting drawing, @bleuxwolf! Many thanks for sharing!

Would you be interested in participating in a collaboration with a writer to make illustrations for a story which is being published in chapters, in the Steem Network?


Thank you Trin! Probably not right now since I have a lot on my plate at the moment.
