Laying Down the Idea

For this image, I've started to thumbnail various ideas. I liked them all equally, so it was pretty hard to choose. In the end, I went with the fight scene. Unfortunately, it was also the most complicated one.

Visualising the End Result

I've enlarged the chosen piece and filled in the main blocks. Red's pose has changed a bit because I wanted to show more of his cool sword.

Unsatisfied with the background, I changed it to match like Samoyede's forest. It was much more fitting this way too, since a boss battle between these two happened in there.

And thus, detailing starts. Adjustments were made on the way like the angle of Beluga's right revolver. Also, Dahak's pose has completely changed. It's much more dramatic this way.

A second render pass has been done on the image as a whole. This was also a good time to add effects like the bloom.

Finishing Touches

Fog, fireflies, embers, more bloom finishes this picture.

All in One!

As always, here is the fun gif animation that summarizes this whole process.

If you're interested in the (suuuper slow) progress, I tend to host a stream at Picarto and Twitch.
