Process #1: Chose the first thumbnail. Originally was going to add Sin Kiske but dropped him for composition and time.
Process #2: Re-drawn sketch with better attention to detail and perspective.
Process #3: Lineart and setting background color/tone.
Process #4: Simplified lighting, subsurface, and getting colors right.
Process #5: Painting directly on top of the drawing with finer details, coloring, and fixing up some issues. Final stage before compositing, color toning, and liquifying parts of the image.
Felt like doing a painting of my favorite character in Guilty Gear Xrd chilling on a nice day.
