Concept development character

 
This is part 2 of concept development tutorial. As you remember we've started with black and white sketching: the figures and the faces. Our next step will be choosing a character for further production and coloring.

So, here is the character I find the best from this bunch.

Concept development character

Copy it to a new layer (the figure and the face too): leave the background clean: erase or delete the other ones. I have a PSD so it will be easier for me.

The next thing I'm going to do is : I'm going to attach the head to the figure of my character ( I have figure and the head on 2 separate layers.)

So I pretty like how it looks now but I still want to change it a little bit. So create a new layer and do some grayscale details with a mere brush without any settings.

I've changed directly some elements of my character like the head and some details.

So that is probably it for grayscale sketch: let's do some coloring.

Here are the brush strokes and brush tips that I'm going to use. These are just basic brushes PS offers.

Drop some primary colors.

Now the next thing I really don't like to do is to paint some basic elements almost at the end of my process. The Chaplet: Made using basic soft (glow) and basic (form) brushes:
