Watch as I create 3 female character portraits from imagination. Each took about 20-30 minutes. I wanted to mainly explore different hairstyles since I noticed I tend to give my characters the same look. These were really fun to make and portraits are something I could sketch all day non stop.
In this video I create 3 black and white thumbnails at about 20 minutes each. The theme is an old favorite castles and mountains! This is a very typical thumbnailing process for me when I'm brainstorming concepts. Starting from background to foreground I'm searching for large masses using very restrained values that produce pleasing compositions.
