my process is never pretty...especially with battle scenes, 1st attempt on the comp idea i have, i always start with either scribbles, or just siluets, oh and i usually make sounds when im drawing like this

Lie setiawan karlaenwarpsmithsuper rough1b

put the layer to lower opacity and scribble again on top of it. its like untangling threads

Lie setiawan karlaenwarpsmithsuper rough1c

lower the opacity again and this time focus on whether the comp reads well, the variation of shapes etc

once its all cleaned up, i like to separate values like this then send it to client, this helps me as a guide not to screw it up later on, which i always still do...

ok 1st wip, i love this part. drawing the lines help me figure out the forms, and adding the details in line saves me headaches when painting later...unfortunately this is also what cause me over render i think ,im sorry brush economy godz im tryinggggg T

then this part is where i add colorz and have mild headache afterwards, coz...colorz duh, i always try to contrast, and kept notes from the amazing jana, about cool warm relation thingie, which ofc i also failed most of the times.
