WIP: The Great King of Evil


Work in progress. Can anyone guess who this is a redesign of?
Ive been meaning to do some fan art/ redesigns of my favorite game franchise for a while. So why not start now? Ive use a few new techniques for this one. Sometimes I think I labor too much into a painting and so have been meaning to try a different approach. So Ive been trying to adapt a bit of a colleague's technique and mask off the silhouette so that I can paint freely and quickly whilst still keeping control of the shapes. I ditched the opacity round brush for most of this (cause it forces me to get into details and I get carried away) and taken up a solid opacity round brush with size pressure (with opacity constantly on 60%). Also used layer blending options to alter colour and add lighter values (coupled with radial gradient to get that spherical fade off). Stay tuned for more.

Planning to ;) Im thinking of doing a number of redesigns of the characters from the universe. This one is still unfinished. Been distracted by many other things, recently the Chris Sanders competition :)
