All of the characters featured here in the Fantasy Art Realm are derived first from my Realm Ethereal universe. The Realm Ethereal was born out of my love for superhero comic books and fantasy art. Blending these both gave birth to The Realm Ethereal. A feel for something both supereheroish and fantasy based is what I am for in this “realm”.
All character creations, as I like to call them, are in fact character studies in my process. I often start drawing and these characters eventually emerge. From nothing more than a single word such as “space” or “ocean” or “butterfly” or “green” do these creations first manifest.
Once the character starts to manifest in a sketch and eventually a full composition in a painting, I start really refining the character’s visual look. Once a painting gets through the full detail grayscale phase, it’s time to add color. In this video, I show how I do that. And, because it’s somewhat related, I’m also posting a time lapse video of the grayscale painting phase. Enjoy!
