This is the first part of my tutorial, which will cover how I created 2 of my latest illustrations titled "Awakening" and "Phoenix Rising"
Paraphrasing the brief, I'm asked to paint "a woman with wings made of fire."
Here are the finished paintings. I've made them available for free download at 8x10 inches 300 DPI, you can make your own prints! fav.me/d7hd2zrfav.me/d7h9cvf
You can download the PSD of these paintings and see the layers, adjustments, progress, and all that fun stuff.
It'll be perfect if you want to follow along the tutorials.
It's available here for free:drive.google.com/file/d/0B2v-b…
Or you can buy it from DA to support me. ^^
In part 1 of the tutorial I will discuss how to research and gather reference, and how to create interesting thumbnails.
I will also include lots of samples, step by step, and any brushes and plugins used in the process as downloadable content.
In this part the only downloadable is the Thumbnail/Ideation brush available here:drive.google.com/file/d/0B2v-b…
This is my first tutorial, so if you have any thoughts and suggestions, please comment, it will help me and everyone who enjoys these tutorials.
Stay tuned for the Part 2: Color palette, light and form, and concept design!
