Digital painting tutorial saber tooth cat and woman environmental concept art. This tutorial shows you how I paint a concept art scene of ice age or doomsday scenario world that cover with ice and snow with a woman and saber tooth cat. This is a speed painting of an ice age female hunter. You can scroll down further to see step by step images with instruction.
First I will visualize the world and what should be in it. I decide that snow, rocky mountain and freezing cold ice river would be good fit for the scene. Then I will arrange the composition with big shapes first and see how they interact in the scene. At this stage, I will simply thing which would be in foreground, mid-ground and background. Then I decide where to place the characters by looking at the existing shapes I arrange. I decide that it would be best if I place the characters in the foreground and have them partially hidden in shadow.
Here is the painting so far, it is not quite done yet but almost there.
There are three major things I usually focus on when I paint a quick scene.
1) Shapes or correct drawing
2) Value of the overall image. This cover all light and shadow all the way to conveying depth of field.
3) Edges and textures. This helps visually define shapes and forms, also whether is it a solid objects, soft or hard, hair, particles, etc.
Thanks for watching hope you are enjoying the video.
