Here are some WIP's of my newest Artwork "Rise of Ayla"
It took me a weekend to finish it :/
1. Step: Rough Sketch and some texture brushes for the background to get a feeling for the whole picture.
Step2: Fill in some basic colors and shading. Now I get the idea for the whole composition^^
Step 3: Making first colors correction! More red and more contrast. Now it looks more intensive.
Step4: Now I painted the Phoenix and some special effects, like glowing and so on^^
Step5: Finished Artwork! I reduced some effects and corrected the phoenix a little bit, so it matched better with the background^^ And DONE *YAY*
