Character concept design

 
Concept art tic: it always better to develop the face of the character away from the form and body shape. Of course there is a way to render high quality sketch from scratch, but you will probably be told to develop several more. That is why it is better to draw the faces separately. A lot of the personality is put in the faces and their emotions.

Here are the faces.

N2. I really like how the 2nd done came out: started with blocking the values from start.

N3. The 3rd one came out really good too. It has plenty
  
of details on his mask.

N4 - Number 4 has a little bit long neck, but in the rest he turned out well. The same technique was used on N4: blocking the colors from start and just playing with the value.

...A little skin reflection. Better to use some texture on the brush - like I didn't

And here we are: we've just created 4 character concepts. It was a lot of fun to do this. I hope you've enjoyed it like I did and really learned something. So practice a lot to master your skill in painting; the speed will come in time.

It helps to have talent enough to draw faces and bodies, unlike me who struggles and is never happy w the results. I admire your talent. You are lucky that it must be a wonderful feeling to see your talents results. Thanks for the tutorial. John R

I was never good at sketching and drawing either. I'm pretty sure you'd need to be at least a little good to get these kinds of results. Great for you, always a delight to read your tutorials. Thanks for sharing this!

I agree with all of the above saying that without the drawing skills that you obviously have, our examples would be vastly inferior! Really nice tutorial and a beautiful result.

I still can never figure out how people seamlessly blend their brushstrokes. I know it isn't the "smudge" tool.
