Ranger - Sketch

501 Favourites
An unused sketch for a book cover.  This is a pretty typical example of how I start paintings. I use a combination of lines and broad strokes of value to capture the idea as quickly as possible. Lines are great for defining details and capturing gesture, while broad strokes of value create atmosphere and lighting. A limit of 1-2 colors is plenty and manageable.

Hello ! I really love your art, especially your beautiful landscapes, they make me dream.

Recently, I found a colorful version of this drawing on Pinterest. It is your work, or fan-made version ?

Another lovely work! I really like how you draw females, especially in armour/battel gear. They always look so cool and practical.
