Emerald Eyed Gaze

Here is my first idea for doing a fantasy barbarian character.  The first step was digital then I printed that out and light-tabled through to pencil sketch on top.  Next was scanning in the new sketch to compine with the original digital sketch.

The next stop I played some more, sketching in photoshop to refine a few aspects that had taken shape in the step before.

Finally, I found the courage to transfer the sketch to the sketchbook.  I used coloured pencil and washes of watercolour at this stage.

Lastly I used acrylic white and a few more washes of watercolour with further details in coloured pencil.  This was a great lesson that began as daunting but now I am looking forward to attempting further pieces with hopefully a better result.

Thanks Mike for sharing your techniques.
