Mostly I'm just putting this up because I really liked the initial sketch, but here we go anyway :D
Adobe Photoshop CS4, about 8 or 9 hours, final overlay texture from cgtextures.com. Pretty much all painted with a hard round brush, with size/opacity set to pen pressure.
Final size - 5k px tall; closeup here at 50% full size.

Final's up here -


Thanks!

I absolutely love drawing like this where the different stages of completion are shown. It just means so much more somehow, like I now know how much effort was put into every step.

hey man been a while :)
Was just looking back at this tut for some help and was wondering, between step 3 and 4, have you worked a bit more on the line art or did you just continue painting and added some line works ' on the fly ' on some important edges ? Not sure if my question is clear...
Thanks for all your tutorials btw, really helps ! :)

No, I didn't really do any re-working of the lines - I may have done some slight re-definition but mostly all of it is still what was there in step 3 - I've just painted the background in now so it looks like the lines are more pronounced.

Cheers!

It's impressive that you use almost no linearts comparing to the precision of the final render.

Awesome work :O

Pretty large work. Does larger canvas makes it easier to draw better? (

Mr--Jack Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2010  Professional
Not really; in fact, being bigger means you have to be tighter with your details usually, but I always like to know that if I wanted to print it out at a decent size then I could, which gets awkward at smaller resolutions.

Hehe; unfortunately the way I work often leaves a step that is just 'paint it!' and is not very helpful as far as technique goes...

Yeah I was really happy with her right from the start; it's always really difficult to get a similar feeling once you actually start painting it in though! And her expression always changes :P
thanks!

Hah, I was actually wondering in this case how you were gonna handle the value changes when you start painting. I often have a nice line art face that quickly falls apart once I put light on it.
