How to draw Ifrit creature design concept art. Ifrit (efreet, ifreet, afreet, afrite, and afrit, عفريت)—are supernatural creatures originally from Arabic and Islamic cultures and literature. They are in a class of infernal Jinn noted for their strength and cunning. In this concept sketch, I did a quick an hour version of Ifrit in my own imagination or interpretation. The main goal of concept is to convey a visual representation of a design, idea, and/or mood for use in films, video games, animation, or comic books before it is put into the final product. In this tutorial, I just basically sketched a creature concept for Ifrit without any prior thumbnails or plan. I just grab pencil and sketch pad then go with it.
In this tutorial, you will learn to draw Ifrit creature concept design in rough sketch stage from step by step easy to follow instruction. The process shows from basic sketching to finish drawing quick character design. The tutorial demonstrates how to put rough idea onto the paper sketch and create character concept art for all level artists.
In Final Fantasy series, Ifrit (イフリート) is a Fire-elemental Summon which appears in several games in the series. His signature attack is called Hellfire, or sometimes Inferno or Flames of Hell, and deals scorching Fire-elemental damage to all opponents. He is one of the most frequently appearing summons and is often a rival to the ice summon Shiva. Like most re-appearing summons, Ifrit changes his appearance in each game, but remains somewhat similar in each game although he curiously appears more and more “beast-like” and less “humanoid” as the series evolves. In general, Ifrit has brown skin with long horns and claws, covered by a simple kilt-like covering around his waist.
Below are step by step how to draw Ifrit. Step one, I sketched his head, horns and upper body really roughly. Step two, I sketched both his arms out. Step three, I then add his facial detail with lion liked feature. Step four, I can then draw darker line with detail over the rough sketch initial idea. Step five, I added detail on his upper arms and torso. Step six, I drew more detail over the rest of the initial sketch. For next step go to Photoshop painting tutorial Ifrit.
Here is a video demo that have similar process on how I draw. It will help you understand my conceptual process more.
