Digital painting tutorial Frost giant concept art with a little witch casting spell on it. This image takes me about a little over 30 minutes to finish.
Most of my concept art or illustration is about telling story. In this one, I have an idea similar to David vs Goliath again. It is a story of a little little girl get lost in snow forest and run into a Frost Giant. I think if you look at the image, you should be able to get the story.
In this tutorial I start with choosing my color palette and composition. Once I have some vague or rough idea, I can then start to explore with shape on my canvas. Then I tackles on the character design with the three quarter lighting. In this image I play around with cast shadow from the big tree and forms of these characters. At this stage, I only focus on big shapes and lighting to get the overall look and feel of the character. Once I get a rough idea on the bunny character. Then I start to add more detail like snow bunnies and owls and go back to polish both of the main characters. Then the rest will take care of itself, I will just add the detail to the story as I go on painting.
This time though I will have a solid idea of what I want to paint. But sometime, I will just let the visual shapes and color guide me as I go.
Again I usually start my image from shapes and build those shape up along with composition in mind. The lighting and value.
