making Skaar "the Breaker"!

in #steem-cartoon6 years ago

Greetings Steemians, todays post feature the second of our brave heroes, Skaar "the Breaker"!Skaar2.10.jpg
I began with sketching the figure in Autodesk Sketchbook, with my Huion graphics tablet, I went through a few sketches before settling on the one I would use for the line art.
At this point I decided that "less is more" and came up with this.
Something still wasn't clicking, so I tweaked the original sketch into something a little more "cartoony".
Skaar2.3.jpgWhich led to my final sketch. From here, It's onto the penciling, Autodesk Sketchbook has several tools that provide the exact look of traditional wood and mechanical pencils.
With the pencils finished, It's time for colors! I begin by opening a new layer in Sketchbook, and set it to "Multiply", this way the colors do not overlap the line art. From here, I start the "base coat"
From here I begin to utilize other colors for highlight and shading, still keeping things somewhat simple. At the same time, I also erase the excess colors, cleaning up the image.
Finally, I decided to try something new and add another layer in back of the character to create a color background. I am quiet pleased with the end result.
See you next time, and remember. "Keep Steemin"!

Hey, thanks for the support, and don't let digital art get you down. I'm still very new to it myself, and have just begun to scratch the surface. I'll be posting more images soon with more details on the steps I use.

excellent post! I like the way you give all of us the explanation about your process! I am learning to paint in digital as well. Regards

I highly recommend Autodesk Sketchbook. I've tried other programs, but find Autodesk to be the most user friendly.

Ha-Ha!! I have always liked Hulk, glad you liked it.

Looks great Maggie! Is the Skaar The Breaker part of a story you are making?

Yes actually, I run Dungeons and Dragons games for my family, Skaar is my son's character.

OMG you are such a cool person! I can barely believe you are a grandmother! The fact that you made this work made me think you were in your twenties or thirties! And you even run D&D games! My God such a blessing to be so energetic, keep going, keep Steeming, and a thousand blessings for you.
