in art •  9 months ago

Hello everyone! I come to you this time with a brand new piece and character of mine. And I'm about to take you step by step with how I did it! =D

Alright, well with this one and with all my other characters I always start with something from the top of my head and see if I can "feel" out the image prior to any solid lines or form. and this is where I started.

I loved the direction it was headed already! But soon realized that the anatomy was wayyy off.. arms and shoulders don't rotate like that, especially when swinging a hammer, so I went back to the drawing board.

This one felt MUCH closer but still.. very off. SO I went ahead and found a hammer * a meat mallet * and a mirror and went to town pretending to swing a hammer, I had to find the right angle and look for the swing and position and then I finally figured out what was wrong. Both the wrist and the hammer itself. SO then I went ahead and drew up these final lines! =D

I had it!! =D The commissioner loved it as well so then It was time to color!
flat colors!

This whole process takes about 10-20 hours. depending on how long my sketch phase is and how long it takes me to figure things out and decide on color! :)

^^ Giphy for you guys!!! ^^

Loving and digging it Nycto! Dwarf girl for the WIN! You know that legend says that nobody ever sees dwarf women? You should make a separate post and try a headline with, "BREAKING NEWS! Dwarf Women Actually Do Exist...Picture Reveal!" Do something like that and maybe it will catch some interest...maybe not? :D

Upvoted Resteemed, but cannot help your reputation right now because it was damaged to less than 25 by some bully thought police jerks because I was defending a guy on a post. As soon as I get enough upvotes I will be able to continue to help build your reputation with my votes.

Keep up the good work man (edited from: lady)!
