Chivalry: Medieval Warfare Summer Sale Illustration composition breakdown. (process giffinal illustration)

I received several questions about the weird black lines that appeared during the process gif posted earlier.  The gif probably moved too quickly to figure out what they correlated to, so I broke the composition down into a series of gifs.

Every aspect of the illustration was intentionally built to form a shape or line to draw the eye to the center top of the frame.  You put them together and it draws your eye directly to the volleyball!

I was largely thinking about Kali Ciesemier's articles about composition and informal subdivision (check them out if you haven’t already!).  I was never formally trained as an illustrator and in a lot of ways I feel like I’m mostly trying to emulate things I like and make what feels right to me, ha ha.

Chivalry: Medieval Warfare Summer Sale Illustration Process gif.(final illustration)
This was one of the rare instances I did an illustration 100% digitally and it wound up being fairly involved.  I thought some people might dig how this thing was built!
The palette was largely based on this photo; I wanted something with a poppy saturated rainbow of color depth.
(Yikes, sorry for the multiple posts, guys! I couldn’t get the gif small enough to actually animate on the dash. :/ )

2 Kawaii 4 U process gif. (final illustration, as print, as tee)

Still in Japan for a few more days,  but I put this together right before I left so I’m gonna post it now for you guys!
Here’s the Kawaii design, from initial concept to sketch, color mockup, and finished design.  I’m really glad it resonated with people!  The number of people who stated a desire to get it as a tattoo was astounding (which I’m cool with by the way, please send me photos if you get it done!)  Anyway, thanks guys!

Lion Queen process.
Put together a process gif of the thing I posted yesterday.  The initial sketch was 2.5”x3” because everything I draw is teeny always.

Kaia and Dhio painting, animated process gif.
I made a little process gif of how I made the previous painting.  Ha ha, I have this bad habit of digitally noodling with real media stuff until it looks digital.  Gotta looooosen uuuup
I should probably mention, the actual painting is super tiny, maybe 4”x4”.
