Of course I did the values in black/white first, then did some colors on top in a Corel mode called 'colorize'. Leaving the colors on, I went back to the layers underneath and kept painting more in black/white. Every so often, I would leave the colors off so I could paint much faster using the eye-dropper tool, zoom out and adjust how it looked from far away, zoom in and tweak details, back out and so on and so on.
I have to add that I did this character to get the attention of Blizzard Entertainment. And I'm glad I did for another reason. Their designs have much attitude and really push how exciting characters can look. I may do another one if I have time, but I'm very anxious to get back to my Voltron series. We'll see though...
Remember we are learning together, pushing through frustration, and developing problem solving skills. Make time for your art and cherish the time you have to do it.
Until later, Cheers!
