Tutorial - Fantasy Renaissance

Hello everyone!

With the year coming to a close I feel now would be the best time to say thank you to all of the supporters who helped to make it possible for me to do what I love most which is draw. Thank you to everyone who came out to the shows and picked up a print or a book and thank you for all of the great feedback from all of my friends, new and old, who were most helpful in providing the necessary feedback to take my illustrations to places I probably wouldn't have gone. Without the right people around you, you will never achieve the right results. So instead of sending out a greeting card I decided to put together a tutorial that I hope will be helpful to anyone else who may be looking for an alternative creative process that they may not have thought of.
I'm a huge fan of the Imagine FX magazine publication and the website so to pay homage to all of their great work and helpful content, I put together this workshop in the Imagine FX style. Let me know what you think!

Take Care and Happy Holidays!

Dragon Lily - Leather Wings Semblance

Here is an image that will be the first of many that will be taken from the linework found in Fields, Decorum, Leather Wings, Apocrypha and Leather Wings Semblance and brought to life in full colour. If there are any suggestions as to what images you'd like to see coloured before others or if there are any helpful tips you'd like to pass along to help improve the colour work please feel free to send me your feedback. I'll be posting the process images of how I coloured this image in the next few days. So check back soon!
