Azure Process by Andantonius Azure Process by Andantonius
Here's the step-by-step process for my Azure piece: [Link]

Pretty straightforward on this one, started with loose sketching, clean-ish linework on top of that, an underpainting, then a few days in rendersville. :)

Probably around 25 hours total.

You make it look so simple... :lol:

Near the end, while figuring out her tail, there's a giant swirly blue line. What was that for? I'm sure it's something simple, but I just can't figure it out. :)

I love watching the evolution of the wrinkles in her dress... I have a serious thing for wrinkles apparently. I suspect I'll make a superb old person...

haha, yeah condesning a 40 hour painting in to a 30 second gif definitely makes it seem simple. xD

As far as the swirly blue line, that was mainly a compositional thing. I was trying to figure out how to position the tail (the red lines) and after a few attempts realized I was just trying to cram the tail in to the corner without connecting it to the rest of the piece. So I used the swirly blue line to find some of the implied lines the elements in the piece were making, and then was able to use the tail to add to that motion and lead the eye back towards the other important elements, so it fit compositionally.

And yeah, the cloth was fun. Thanks! :B

Wow, I am seriously ignorant when it comes to composition. I wouldn't have even considered how all the disparate elements, like a tail, would fit together in the picture as a whole (let alone implied lines and such). When I used to draw, it was just to get an image down so other people could see what I was thinking about. I guess that just made me close to a beginner in the craft. :)

And that's why I abandoned graphic design as a career path long ago. :lol:
