I decided that my first project is going to be a fanart- one of my favorite bishies, Griffith.
First step - the messy sketch. Too messy... I had to redraw the helmet and change the portrait details. After that, I put the flat grays, the basic light/shadow areas and more details on the face.
I applied the color and added more layers with different blending modes. I changed the colors few times, and I decided to adjust the shoulders a little bit . I put more color on the background and armor, an warmer light and colder shadows.
And finally, the textures and the color adjustments. That's it!
