How to paint Samurai woman. Learn to paint Samurai woman step by step process with instruction. In this tutorial you will learn to draw sketch and digital paint over a comics style woman, female samurai or swordsman character design illustration.
This new step by step tutorial is a work over the old drawing of mine. It was a drawing tutorial I made a year ago I think. Now I am slowly picking some of the old sketch, drawing or concept that are worthy of going all the way to possibly finish stage using variety of method or style.
It’s a good exercise for once in a while you should pick some of your older work and upgrade it or redo it totally (if the idea was great but bad execution). But this rogue samurai sketch is alright to begin with so I am just going to paint over the sketch and take it to the finish line, hopefully.
So basically I am focusing on repaint her face and tighten or clean up the rest of the environmental background.
Also, there is no painting video, just step by step. I need to step up a few knots and get better as a painter, most of the time recording can be very distracting. I want to be able to think, analyze, and observe the work without putting in any brush stroke during the course. Which often take as much time as actual painting itself. So… Thinking and planing is hard.
