GM - Fan Art Masterclass (2009)

Here's a how-to I did for GamesMaster magazine for their 219th issue (Jan 2010). In terms of layout, this is my own personal version with some extra features. I hope this will be helpful to you guys!

What I really appreciate is the two completely different styled characters shown. Having something demonstrated in multiple ways helps to provide a sense of variety in what can be done with a particular technique and it's really helpful as well as just plain interesting!

Do you do each flat color on its own layer, and then shade on the flat color layers, or do you have all of the flat colors on one layer, and then make a new layer for shading/highlight/etc?

I would keep the flat layers flat, and create new ones above each to colour on, and I'd flatten them on the flat layers once Im happy with them. If I need more highlights, or shadows, colour, or anything, I'd simply create a new layer to do it on and once im happy with it, I'll flatten it with the rest. These days I try keep my layers to a minimum.
