So while working on a call for SciFi and futuristic art I created this beauty. Here is a small glimpse of the work process for you.
This is a basic sketch that I created using a (free for commercial use) stock photo. I like to use photos so that I get the proportions right. It also allows me to get the pose that I want. It also saves me some time. The robot’s hands are completely free hand drawn.
I use a LOT of layers so that I can color different areas in any order I like. In this case, I did the robot hands first, they took the most work. I’ve never had a hard time with fabric and backgrounds so I saved them for last.
All finished with the background which is digitally painted. I have found that I can use a lot of photo composite skills in my digital painted/drawing work which is nice.
And if you would like a copy of this for your own, well good news you can now purchase it directly from me at my online store.
