I painted this One Piece-related Roronoa Zoro fanart tonight in Grace's Google hangout with frands. It's part of a series of sketches I did last year that I never painted, but plan to eventually finish completely.
My first full iPad Pro painting. This is a portrait of a wizard character from my comic whose name is Gromthrottle....really this is just something I've been messing around with while building a workflow inside Paintstorm Studio, and before I could work on the next thing that I really want to work on, it made sense to wrap this one up first...even if it is far less refined than I usually like. xD
So tonight I finished preparing the drawing for my next piece that I will be starting to paint tomorrow and I will be recording it for a future time lapse video release...I also thought I'd give everyone a preview of where it's going.
Nowadays my process is on the heavy side when setting up the drawing, but the actual digital paint time is significantly less than before because I've spent so much time up front analyzing and setting up.
Let me be clear though, even though this prepared sketch IS greyscale....I don't actually paint in black and white and colorize....my drawings just end up this way in order to allow me to have a greater textural base on which to start building color.
Anyway, this one should definitely be a fun one to paint. XD
So in the background, while planning and working on a ton of other personal projects stuff, I managed to paint this one. It's a painting of Pirate Captainess Natasha, who happens to be another main character in my comic...
What's special about this one is that the entirety of my painting it has been recorded, and that video will be released shortly. I will post about it in the very near future so stay tuned...and PLZ note...it will be FREE. :D
