Vaakia Process by Mr--Jack Vaakia Process by Mr--Jack
Okay, here's the process of one of the WoW TCG cards I did for the Throne of Tides set.
(It's a big file, so be patient and let it load, or try the 'download' link if it's not working)

The final PSD is about 6000 x 4000px, and I ended up with ~10 layers + a couple of adjustments. The whole thing probably took around 9-10 hours or so.
Here's the final image; enjoy!

I just want to crawl on my knees at you and beg you to take me as your apprentice and to teach me the way of beautiful fantasy art.

In other words, I love it :D

I've always wondered how these were made, though I wish there were some traditional art ones
VERY very nice! :D

Thanks so much for posting this piece!

Sadly, I got away from drawing right after college, but am just now getting back into it and trying to figure out this new fangled digital world ;-) When teaching yourself, it's a tremendous help to come across tutorials, tips, tricks, etc from the pros.

Thanks a bunch!

This blows me away! Your illustration has perfect composition while looking animated, tight and clean lines, smooth shading, great textures, lighting... damn this piece just rocks!

Thanks for demonstrating your process, too. Very helpful!

Do you put most of the layers of color above the lineart? It's obvious that the first layer is either a multiply layer or below, but I find it difficult to tell with the others.

This is amazing! I am very interested in getting involved with this type of art. I love painterly effects in Photoshop. After you do the line art, do you keep that layer set on 'normal', or do a different effect like 'overlay'. Thanks!

Ah can't edit a comment - question after watching it again, the background wasn't really in the back, was it? Is that actually a layer in front of the figure?

I thought I was going totally in the wrong direction, by doing very rough sketches at first.
