Illustration Process! Illustration Friday: Swarm

The first thing I do when creating an illustration is to sketch a very quick, unpolished thumbnail to base my image on.


Next I draw a line drawing based on the initial sketch. I went ahead and rendered the fire before everything else to make sure it would look right, as it was meant to be an important part of the final image. I changed the man's weapon from a gun to a sword to give a more desperate, close combat struggle feel to the image.


Next I do preliminary colouring for the entire image


After I colour the image I add highlights and shadows.


Finally I add in all the small details and have a finished image
