    C.O.W. #294 Glabrezu - Official Tutorial By Si_Swe

    Hey folks, I've wanted to try my hand at doing a tutorial for quite some time now. I figured that since I won a round recently, and had all sort of reference around regarding its process, I'd turn it into one of the official COW tutorials. Obviously, everyone has their own process so take my words with a grain of salt.

    Artist: Si_Swe

    Tutorial for: COW #294 - Glabrezu

    Concept: Greater Tanar'ri, Glabrezu

    To start this tutorial I'm going to embed the time lapse that was created for this piece. It won't be particularly informative, but may give you more of an idea of the process in action. Unfortunately the time lapse only covers about the first 5 hours of the ~7.5 hours that the piece took, due to my time lapse program having a malfunction and corrupting the recordings for the last two painting sessions.

    Simon, this is sweet, man!! See what I did there?
    lol sorry, Bad puns aside, this is a very well thought out tutorial, with lots of words, x_x Always cool to see everyone's processes on their work! Video was a nice touch too, shame you didn't have the rest of the footage, though!

    Def liked the mini symbol tutorial in there, gonna have to give that a go see what i can come up with!

    Art is not about competing against others and being better than everyone else, but it is about competing against yourself and discovering your greatest potential!

    Like your comments about the photo-texturing. Advice on how to create more professional looking work is really invaluable.
