Draw character design tutorial Ogre shaman. This tutorial shows you how to draw and paint a character design of Ogre shaman. 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 an Orge. I first explore with exaggerate human shapes with the big broad hunch over back. I am using basic flat brush to establish light and shadow. Then I explore the pose and where the light would hit on the figure. At this stage, I only focus on big shapes and general feature, lighting and base to get the overall look and feel of the character 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.

You have to first take care of the big shape then you can think about adding design and little detail. Lighting is everything in painting.
I use a lot of normal layer and just paint like I would paint traditionally in this video. But with a lot of help from custom brushes. 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.

Tips on speedpainting. Keep it simple first and make your image clear and easy to read or identify.

Things you should focus on primarily.
1) Shapes and general feature
2) Lighting and mood
3) Overall Design and look.
