Fire Witch

Tonight I finished my #Fire Witch design. It is a #digitalart piece completed using #Clip Studio Paint. This is part of the series I have been working on. You can see other pieces that I have completed by clicking here or here.

Fire Witch

I need to build a fire simulation in Blender to add some more affects. I’ll then add it to YouTube like the others. I am about to do some more traveling so I will be away for a while.

Love to know what you think so far.

Forest Witch

I created another digital art piece combining Blender and Clip Studio Paint. This is the next installment from last week’s post. If you haven’t noticed, I’ve been witch themed for a while now. Makes me almost wish for Halloween again.

Process

The design is about 40 layers most of which are corrections and refinements that I made as I went back over during the polishing stage. I just paint over areas I’m not happy with and use another layer. Don’t judge. Each to their own right?

Blender Enhancements

I uploaded the finished .png into Blender and added some additional lighting effects. This was a lot faster this time because I saved my last project as a template. All I needed to do was change the lighting colors in my volumetric cube and upload the new illustration to replace the old one. The longest part is actually rendering the animation.

Below are some of the other versions.

The Concept Art Idea Book 2

I am excited to announce that I am working on my second Concept Art Idea Book. My very first book was released back in 2017. One of the things I’ve noticed as I build the newest installment is quite a lot of artistic growth over the past few years. It’s only when you start to compare your recent work with some of the older works that you really notice the change. Very thankful to all the artists out there who have shared their insights, challenges, and contributed to helping me become a better artist.

You can find my first book at Amazon.com and it’s available in both paperback as well as eBook formats.
