Fantasy illustration of a magician
Drawing of a Draenei from the Warcraft-universe as TCG illustration.
Since this piece is a TCG art, I had to take extra care to create an illustration that is readable on a very small scale. I started with a rough sketch first. Some details, like the hairdo of the figure, I wasn't happy with yet and revisited on a more detailed sketch. Like usual, I continued with a greyscale sketch to pin-point contrasts.
I was happy with the color palette from the get-go, so I drew my first shadows on the color sketch directly. I continued rendering from there on out. Close to the end of my process I colored parts of the robe white, to give the whole picture a better visual balance.
