Butcher by Nightblue-art Butcher by Nightblue-art
One of the practice runs I did for the Butcher speed painting I did at Gamescom. I scewed up and grabbed the wrong folder in the rush to get off the stage before the lights went back on, so I don't have the live session files :\

But here's what I planned to do. I don't think I was able to take it as far on stage, but hopefully I was somewhat close.

Practice: 2 hours of painting over pre-drawn clean linework.

I just fought this guy today with my friend.  A terrifying behemoth, he was, with a hunger for flesh.

Thankfully, he was just as dumb as he was in Diablo 1.

This painting is really, really amazing and I was blown away watching the live drawing at gamescom =D wish I would have such great skills too. By the way, did you paint the colour just over the black and white painting here or with special layers? (I just saw the black and white drawing) would be awesome to know how you coloured it, because I really suck at colouring =D

Thanks Alistoir! I used an overlay layer to add color. How that works is if the value on the overlay layer is at exactly 50% gray, the value of the layer underneath will be unchanged. The lighter the overlay layer is the more "blown-out" effect it will have to whatever is underneath.

If you are having trouble with color theory, I would recommend this book: [link] , James Gurney's Color and Light.

Hope this helps :D
