“He took a deep breath. All his research had led up to this point. One spell and he would be whole again, no matter what others said. He would be the first wizard to bring back the Dead.”
This image is part of a series of new portfolio pieces to reflect the skills that I have now. This means that I go through the whole process pretty methodically – I treated last year’s Inktober as the “sketch phase” to generate 31 ideas. For every idea that I decide to make into a full illustration, I make 4 color sketches that help me decide what kind of colors work best with the mood that I want to create. Only after that do I make the full illustration with all the bells and whistles.
