Trying to spend more time on illustrations. Sketched out a few possibilities before hand. (thought I would include for process purposes.)
I typically will sculpt a base model in Zbrush to take away the guesswork of the forms and light and will use a screen grab for the line art that I do in photoshop. The rest is all just digital painting. The thumbnails were originally intended for the end result to look more child like but throughout the process I lost a lot of that and went a different route.
