Process - High Oracle Naseem by Nightblue-art Process - High Oracle Naseem by Nightblue-art
Process for [link] , please hit "download" for full-size.

This would be my ideal process when everything goes right: figure out stuff in sketches, no flip-flopping in painting stage, and everything just kind of falls into place.

This is my 8th WoW TCG, and I've done a few more since painting this one... unfortunately, this orderly kind of process is not typical for me.

Hopefully with more practice in sketching, I can stop myself from trying to jump into painting stage before I'm anywhere near ready.

I was thinking about how you said you can't help your urge to completely paint out your line drawing in your paintings-- a little trick I use is to use a mask to 'erase' parts of the sketch as I paint on top of it on another layer... that way I get rid of the sketch and clean up only the areas that really need it... I used to waste hours on cleanup before I thought of it...

You know, that's a great idea. Maybe I should at least keep the sketch on a separate layer :P Right now I usually don't... haha...

I used to do the same :P Now I usually end up knocking it back to 10% and paint on top and mask out whatever's left.

This is so very awesome and helpful. Thank you for posting! It's great to see your progress. How many different layers did you have by the time you finished it? I know some artists that work on one and some that work on several.

For this one I was able to keep figure and ground separate until the polish stage. There are not a lot of layers overall because I didn't flip-flop as much :) I typically paint on one layer, often duplicating the layer and paint on the new one to preserve the older version as a layer. Most of my photoshop files are huge with a mess of disorderly layers, as a result.
