Witchdoctor by Nightblue-art Witchdoctor by Nightblue-art
One of the practice runs I did for the Witchdoctor 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 think I got relatively close on this one... shame that I don't have the file anymore :( Got too excited and forgot to hit Ctrl + S after coloring.

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

I almost get the feeling he cut his own head off to allow the mask to become his head (perhaps for a ritual to become a superior witch doctor), since the head's colors fit so well with the outfit.

Ohmygosh! The Diablo Facebook page posted pictures of you working on this. I was incredibly impressed. I am so happy to see that your art is getting so much attention. You deserve it! <3

I really love this style of digital art, colorful and painterly, nice work :) Was this done in photoshop?

yup, photoshop with a textured brush. It has to be painterly because there's no time to noodle :P

Totally agree with Kaana, I would have liked to compare as well :P Sadly I could only watch you on Friday and Saturday, but it was really interesting and fun!

Thanks! I have a super crappy quality photo near the end of your first day working on it here [link] , you can at least see shapes and values here and maybe it's better than nothing D: didn't take any pictures on the second day, sadly :(

It's really a shame that you didn't get the files in the end - a comparison of these two would have been fun! :)

I still had time to watch you coloring the Witchdoctor on Friday for a while, and it was interesting to see your coloring technique. The artwork looked pretty cool even in a semi-final stage!

Thanks a lot Moonshadow! I rushed the butcher one more than I planned for, but thought this one turned out okay... wish I had the actual stage drawing also :P Oh well!!! I've had such an awesome time that it barely matters. Hope your con was awesome as well :) It was a great pleasure to meet you!

I had a blast at gamescom, although there were some minor problems when I tried to go home by train later... ah, well - you can't have everything! ;)

Thanks so much for taking your time to talk to me (and for taking such good care of me in the process :D) - it was truly a pleasure, and I really learned some interesting things that day!

Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay, too, and I wish you a safe trip home!
