Battler Art – King Gilgamesh

in Resources

For the last bi-weekly battler post, I really wanted something cool.  I really wanted to emphasize the brutish nature of the Flesh Eater tribe from the Azurian tropics.  So I started with some rough sketches and a good idea in mind.

I had some key words written down, and I felt this pose hit most of them pretty well.  From here I went to actually drawing the character.

After roughing in some lines and values, I started to drop in some colors.

Once I got to this point, I made a new layer of everything underneath and started painting directly on top of it.

Obviously that is quite a big jump!  I also redesigned the mask slightly, I was thinking about making him corrupted by Sloth, but then the story didn’t quite turn out that way.
