Interests
There have been some request for me to show my painting process.
So this set of journal entries would be basically dedicated to a new idea I started to develop.


For quite some time I wanted to do a series of paintings that would allow me to acquire some skills in painting different skin color characters and some different scenery and animals. This Marana painting is a first in a series of two. The one below is more of an introduction to the character, the second would showcase her in action.

1. Tools: Painter IX.
The brushes I mainly used at this stage are highlighted in blue below. 
I would use a greater variety from the same list in the next steps and especially in the finishing stages to add more textures and details to the painting.

1. Clumpy brush - from Artist's oils default set = awesome paintery style brush!
2. Square brush - with high bleeding value of around 90% = great for smooth surfaces and blending
3. Square chalk 35 - from the chalks default set = great for clouds and textures
4. Variable chalk - from the chalks default set = nice brush for textures
5. Variable splatter - from airbrush default set = just play with it 
6. Water rake - from the blending default set = for blending stuff
7. Fine sponge - from the sponges default set = mainly for hard surface textures 
8. Basic Round - from Zhuzhu's set = i mainly use it to enhance colors and light in the pictures.
9. Basic Round blendy - same brush as (8) but with bleed set to 90-100%
10. Sargent brush - from the default artist's brushes set

11. Z-square chalk - from Zhuzhu's set = for textures
12. Z-texture comb - from Zhuzhu's set = i use it mainly for the paintery brush effect



2. References: I already had a bunch of refs for armor ideas, skin color, etc. These are just some examples of what I have in one of my many reference folders on my laptop.

3. Process: 
Drawing: I already made some sketches & studies in my sketchbook, (unfortunately I don't have a scanner) so I knew what I wanted the painting to be and look like.

Painting: At first I hesitated a bit about my ability to create a good enough African warrior princess character so I decided to do so a little doodle. After actually seeing that the painted sketch looked good, instead of starting a new painting I used the same sketch as a base for Marana's face. Having the original pencil sketches near me it was very easy to re-scale and adjust the modified painter sketch to fit what I wanted to see on the canvas. Lastly, I quickly transferred one of my sketchbook ideas to the painting wip. 

You can view and download it here.

4. Progress thus far:

5. Time: So far, about 3 hours.


More to come soon... 

Cheers, 
Alex.
