Portrait painting sorcerer quick sketch tutorial. This tutorial shows you how to draw and paint a portrait of a fire sorcerer for concept art or visual development. I will also show you how to paint fire and bounce light in this tutorial.
In this tutorial I was inspired by 1920 costumes and setting. I first explore with background experimenting with new texture brushes. Then I basic flat brush to establish base shape for the sorcerer. At this stage, I only focus on big shapes and general proportion and features to get the overall look and feel of the characters first before I can design the detail of the character. Once you have a good silhouette and general idea for the character then we can start doing more detail. Int this video, I use a lot of references for costumes, jewelry, and accessory of anything from 1920s.
You have to first take care of the big shape then you can think about adding facial structure using values then adding costume design to the character. Shapes, precision and lighting are essential to any painting.
I use a lot of normal layer and just paint like I would paint traditionally in this video. But in this particular video I experiment with many new custom brushes. They can take a while to get use to. Once you get them right and know where to use them, it will my job a lot easier. Hopefully this can be really helpful to you all.
This time have a vague idea of what I want to paint. So it is about play with shapes, texture, trials and errors. But sometime, I know exactly what I want to paint before I start.
Again I usually start my image from shapes and build those shape up along with composition in mind. The lighting and value.
Tips on speedpainting. Keep it simple first and make your image clear and easy to read or identify.
