    More thumbnail practice, 10 - 20 minuets each. I've had some people asking about my process so I included a step by step. I like to use a few different processes but here is an example of the one I use the most.

    Step 1: Find an interesting silhouette. I just go crazy with the brush and eraser to find interesting shapes.

    Step 2: This is a combination of creating a new layer with a clipping mask and using the same energy throwing down random marks within the silhouette.

    Step 3: Refine my design and clean up the silhouette.

    Step 4: Post effects, and done.

    An update on some personal character concepts and their color thumbs. I'm leaning towards #3.

    I've been working on some more studies. Time of day / light studies from photo ref and a rendering study also from photo ref. I came to the conclusion after doing these light studies that color is another part of any image that you have to design as well. I't never occurred to me to really think to design my color in the way nature has designed color. I would just pick colors I thought looked nice or just think warms and cools. I hope to be able to apply what I've learned with these to feel more informed about my color choices.

    Awesome suff. Those light studies look great. Your figures are getting better and better. Those muscle mapping excercises are awesome. Seems like a good excercise. Keep them coming. More anatomy studies!

    Wow the thumbnails are looking great and I'm loving the texture in one of the studies up top with the skin

    Great idea with the lighting practice too, I think I'll try that one too my self sometime

    A suggestion I'd make is that some of you color choices seem a bit flat, like for the colored orc I feel like a lot of shading is done with darker values of the same colors, especially in the skin it's noticeable. I'd suggest that you try incorporating more colours into your shadows and highlights such as perhaps tilt the shadows on the orc's skin to a purple or a blue and tilt the highlights to a yellow. This way, the colors will pop more, but again of course it all depends on environmental lighting.

    Carry on !
