In this workshop I will show you how to create animation and game art from a sketch to finished illustration with the most popular apps available for professionals.
This session is for anyone starting their digital art journey creating 2D art for comics, character art and game assets.
Character Concept Process
Exploring Character Art Styles. El Azteca Moderno - Frank aka Tenuch
My creative process starts with sketching in Adobe Fresco with pencil brushes. Sketching is especially important when the character doesn't yet exist as an image. All of these sketches were drawn with Adobe Fresco.
In this example with El Azteca Moderno, I want to capture the image of a young adult/late teen character on a quest. We see lots of sketches exploring different art styles, body types, and elements that make the character recognizable in the story plus fit two different mediums, comics and gaming!
Time for some ink, nope, not yet!
Once we have a style that fits our story and character, we are ready for inking with vector brushes. The first image shows where we settled on the art style, the details and the features that reflect the young adult/late teen age.
Just when you think you are ready for the next step, a new ideas comes along and now I need to draw that instead! And so the process starts again, blue sketches were drawn on Sketchable App on Surface Book 2.
Let the inking and colors begin!
My character art influences started with comics, so most of my character art has an outline for the clothing, gear, character elements and details. Sometimes I create art without outlines or very little linework and that depends on the storyline mood and project requirements.
