Armour study, not trying to perfectly render out the stud just trying to get the gold colour down still more than anything else. Also I'm trying to cut the greyscale phase out of my work flow to try and speed up my working process and improve my colours.

creature pose thumbs. going from medieval type of armor to futuristic (star wars infl) once the level up happens. sketching around for a pose.

robe study
second card for the blood sports.

After my initial card I decided to take my time and draw the pose in with line instead of just using the soft brush to block in. Generally I found that I still have a tendency to try and rush to the painting phase when doing illustrations and not take enough time with the foundation of the image. I wasn't enjoying the process like I used to and I realised why, because I wasn't taking my time and care with my images. Just rushing through them and I feel like taking the time to draw out the foundation of this image helped me understand that and in the end even at this early stage I feel I will have a much better beast image than human one.
second card final. Didn't have as much time as I did for the first card as I had a dentist appointment today, but since i didnt have a greyscale to colour phase it took half the time, I'll probably work on it a little more at some point though.
blood sports 15 study and some livestream sketches
