I’ve not had to do much digital painting lately so this weekend I decided to paint a little mascot for my local BNI chapter. Fortunately they are called the ‘Viking’ Chapter which gives me something cool to work with. I always start a project like this by sketching a basic shape using good old fashioned pencil and paper. When I’m happy with the shape I usually scan the image in or if I don’t need to capture too much detail I just use a camera and grab a quick shot. When the image is in photoshop I then start a layering process that you can see in the little animation at the bottom of this post.
