Lacey Highwater process by Spidersaiyan Lacey Highwater process by Spidersaiyan
As a sort of way of saying thanks for the DD yesterday, I thought I'd post my process for making the piece, for anyone who wanted to see it. One thing I forgot to mention in the process, but I did, is I flipped the picture horizontally a lot; especially throughout the sketching phases...It made it much easier to catch mistakes that I would overlook otherwise! Also, I used Paint Tool Sai throughout 95% of making the character. I used Photoshop to make the map, and to create a gradient from green to orange, which I overlayed on the character on low opacity.


As for the map in the background, I loosely followed the first half of this tutorial: [link]

Finished piece:

Once again, thanks for the DD...I'm honored to have gotten one, and it really made my day!

This isn't really my cup of tea, but now that I've seen all the hard work you put into it I can appreciate it a lot more than when I just saw the final version.

Aaaargh, I'm so jealous.
I lack technique, skill, patience, control, intuition and every other possible aspect necessary in art to draw anywhere near this level of complexity.

Blasphemy! You could do the same, if not better...All it takes if practice, and motivation! :D

If only I could build up the time and will to practice to exertion.
