In this tutorial I start with a rough idea of a warrior monk standing in front of pagoda or an Asian castle. I first explore with shapes with lasso tool then using texture brush to paint in the selection. I am using the texture to convey materials and also light and shadow. Then I explore what kind of lighting direction do I want. At this stage, I only focus on big shapes, lighting and base to get the overall look and feel of the character first before I can design the detail of the costume. Once you have a good silhouette with lighting and good form then we can start doing more detail.
You have to first take care of the big shape then you can think about adding design and little detail.
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 struggle a bit in the beginning because I only have vague idea of what I want. 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.
