Another illustration here.
Step1. thumbnails and sketches
Not much done with sketches except i went straight to the thumbs.Step2. Pencils
Yet again straight to it, it was like i knew exactly what to do.
sample colours then once ive found them start finalizing and smoothing things out. added the candles and worked in the shines from the light to the armor, wanted to give a feeling from the colours of the Fountain, thats why i chose the more colourful background. the pages the Kent Williams did for the Fountain comic with the Spanish Conquistadors were my favorite and i had the book open next to me while painting.
after the image was finished i tweaked the colour balance a bit the brighten the pic a bit and done.
