Digital painting tutorial dwarf against wolves concept art

This tutorial shows you how to paint a scene of a dwarf ready to fight a pack of wolves concept art and speed painting. The final image takes me three to four hours to finish. Usually before I begin painting a concept, I have some kind of story in mind. It makes my job a lot easier if I imagine some kind of event.

full post here:

If I am blank, I will start with where first. Then I will figure out what kind of a place I want to explore today. Then do some research for the environment I want to study and paint. Then I will try to imagine who is there and why or what happen. This will give me more information so that I can make up some exciting story or moment to amp my visual. Once I have some vague or rough idea, I can then start to explore with shape on my canvas. Then the rest will take care of itself, I will just add the detail to the story as I go on painting.
Sometimes though I will have a solid idea of what I want to paint. But sometime, I will just let the visual shapes and color guide me as I go.
Again I usually start my image from shapes and build those shape up along with composition in mind. The lighting and value.
Tips on speedpainting. Keep it simple first and make your image clear and easy to read or identify.
Things you should focus on primarily.
1) Shapes
2) Lighting and mood
3) Edges and depth of field.
