As you know I always say focus on the value when painting and this one is pretty much the same.

Watch the digital painting video tutorial, painting Venom and back light.
Below are step by step images process to watch along with video instruction. Step one, this is a previous drawing that I already have. Step two, I select what kind of composition I want then I zoom in and crop. Once I cropped, I paint the figure with medium gray to get the base value I can start off with. Step three, now I can add a Venom color, grayish purple, then I paint in basic light and shadow on his muscles. I paint his arm muscles which are shoulder, triceps and biceps. These are very important when doing comics book characters. Step four, I refine lighting more and simplify. Finally, I can add hightlight and hot spot onto the focal area. Then I am done!
