Mortanas The Crow Process by CrayonMechanic Mortanas The Crow Process by CrayonMechanic
Warning! Huge.

This is the first time I've compiled my horrid painting process. I still consider myself a total newbie, so over time this will become refined. But yeah! As you can see I just wing it, go with my instincts.

This is a totally new painting style for me too, often I blend and start in Grayscale. Here I went into painting and I was treating it like an oil painting.

Nice process! Personally, I sort of wish you had kept the hands and sharpened some more details, but this still looks fantastic nonetheless. :) The Venetian blind shadows are a very interesting final touch. And as previously said, it was a good choice taking the objects out. :> How long did your initial sketch take? :o

I think at the time of painting, due to various circumstances I ended up simplifying the character. One was my lack in hand rendering skill, second was my trying a whole new approach to painting. I think Birdman is kind of my second attempt at this, though with a different character at least.
The sketch took about 5 minutes, I tend to rush my digital sketches as I'm never too sure on what I am painting at first. (Alternately Birdman had a good 30 - 40 minute sketch )

Good choice in taking the coins out. They were distracting to the eye and made the flow of the work a bit awkward. This is great though, the whole process is fascinating. The end product looks great!

Yeah I totally agree, they just were not working with the energy of the pose either. Thanks for the kind words, I've learnt a hell of a lot from this one. I'm excited to move onto the next.
