Creature design tutorial Atlantis guards. Draw creature design Walrus Centaur warrior of Atlantis. This tutorial shows you how to draw and paint a creature design of a Centaur Walrus the warrior of Atlantis concept art. This tutorial shows you from drawing step to rough semi-finished painting. You can scroll down further to see step by step images with instruction.

In this tutorial I start with a rough idea of madness something something in Antarctica or Ice Atlantis (it isn’t real guys, seriously). I first trying to get the background together. And they are just a bunch of silly sheets of ice, shouldn’t be that hard. Then the crazy creature centaur Walrus of some sort. Then I use the back lighting, slightly 3/4 of the way. At this stage, I only focus on big shapes, lighting and base to get the overall look and feel of the character first. Using lasso tool can be very advantage because you will just focus on light and shadow. The shape is already set by the lasso selection boundary so you won’t screw up for real. Once the big shape is set then I can design the detail of the armor, etc.
You have to first take care of the big shape then rest will take care of itself, I will just add the detail to the background and characters as I go on painting.
I use a lot of lasso tool painting technique in this video. Hopefully this can be really helpful to you all.
This time though I have a good 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.
