Back in September I shared one of my new Warhammer 40K paintings, Xaeves Split Tongue. Back when I was working on it I had a friend asking me about my process. In order to help answer his questions I took some progress shots.
I always get asked about my process, I think most artists do. Hope this answers some questions for ya!
I start with a digital sketch, based on a quick thumbnail from my sketchbook.
Then I do a pencil drawing after shooting reference and combine my sketch with new information from the reference.
Then I do a drawing on tone paper to help establish values.
I have my tone sketch printed on board, but I left all the background white. I then go in with arcylics and a toothbrush to create texture.
I then jump right into oil paint. Using the arcylic texture to inform as I fill in the painting.
More oil paint!
The final step is hours and hours of rendering the form in oil paint.
I was asked to make some changes, and did so digitally.
