Character and Monster Design Tutorials -Updated February 3rd
Hey everyone! I posted this in my sketchbook a little while ago, and it seems some people found it helpful. I just remembered we had a tutorial section, so I figured I'd post it here too! It's more of a process breakdown than a step by step tutorial, but I hope you guys find it helpful. Lemme know if you have any questions.
UPDATE: Just wrote up another step by step, walking through a different process for drawing characters in photoshop. Let me know if anything is unclear
UPDATE 2/03/2012: Just adding another tutorial I've written up here on my King Dodongo piece.
ALSO: For those of you interested in brushes, there are some great sets at this link, all you should ever need.

Just uploaded another. I figured as I use new processes in my work I'd share them in this thread with everyone.

Jaspy you make it seem so easy.
Beautiful work. ::ice-cream:: For you.
Outstanding work. You make it seem fluid and natural. I can tell you're a fan of Justin Sweet and Vance Kovacs.
Interesting tutorial. I've always liked your art, it's cool to see the way you work!
Excellent. And extra points for Mistborn.
Very cool, this will help me greatly, thanks. Gonna have to try it out.
great post! thanks a bunch!
By the way where can i get that brush? its awesome
Thank you! These are very helpful!
Its a nice method when applied directly with scribbled concepts. Something i'll adopt for sure, thanks.
I Love this
Thank You, Jasper !!
Love. Where does it come from? Who lit this flame in us? No war can put it out, conquer it. I was a prisoner. You set me free.
Tons of Tutorials
I keep forgetting about textured brushes for some reason, thanks for the inspiration!
This is very helpful! Thank you for sharing. I like that last step in the first example, with the second light source. I wouldn't have thought of that.
Awesome, very helpful!
When we use photo ref like this, like to just get the pose right or a little help with anatomy, should we give credit to the photographer, or do we need to ask permission, etc?
Hey everyone! Glad these are helpful for some of you! I put a link up top to some solid brush sets, so if you find your own brushes are lacking, check some of those out!
jsn Hey thanks! When using photo ref in this manner, there's no need to contact the creator/copyright holder. The final illustration in no way resembles the photograph. Nothing is copied from it, just a quick check on female anatomy.

sweet tut ill be using this now,
Ty for tutorials, I found them to be really insightfull.
How much time did you spend on lizard tutorial?
Are there some signs when you're starting to draw that point you towards using/defining color first, instead of doing b&w and color definition after?
