Digital painting tutorial painting wizard elf.

Digital painting tutorial painting wizard elf. In this tutorial, I will show you a step by step digital painting for a character that I did for Paizo Publication. The character is part of a Pathfinder series.  This is a step by step process of how to create a character for a fantasy genre game.

I usually receive description from client for character concept illustration that I will be working on. This character assignment, I have to design a female elf caster. This is a female elf wizard with dark hair and orange-gold-colored eyes. She wears long red robes and holds a gnarled wooden staff. She’s holding an orb of magical golden fire in one hand.
First I will sketch some thumbnails base on the description. But if I already familiar with the subject, I will just dive right in. In this tutorial, I am going to show you the character design and illustration process.  Again I would strongly recommend that you focus basic values or lighting then the rest will follow.

Here is a final character design for Wizard Elf, Iliara Starcloak.

Below are step by step how to paint a female elf.  Step one, I sketch a basic female body in a casting action pose.  It is very similar to gesture drawing but with more detail.  Step two, I then assign color to skin tone and dress.  Step three, I paint her hair then add lighting to her body.  Step four, I decid to repaint her skin with slightly shift hue toward more pink/purple.  Then I paint more light and shadow onto her face.  Step five,  I give her overall value using lighting.  I just use normal mode and paint with color.
