Battler Art – Maneater

in Resources

So a big thanks to TherainED for giving me an initial idea for this monster.  Here is his initial post with the idea.

Obviously I took it in a “slightly” different direction… maybe a bit more monster-y than the image he linked, heh.

A quick sketchbook sketch to get an idea of what I was thinking.

Loose, quick line drawing in photoshop.

Some quick shading and tones.

Here is where I really started getting in there and getting some textures and really fleshing out the surfaces.

First color pass with some hard light and overlay layers.

Final layer with some extra sharpening and some more details fleshed out on a top opaque layer.

After this character we will be moving to a new format that includes a few battlers and some battlebacks, which I am currently calling a BattlePACK.

The new poll will decide the direction for this first BattlePACK, so go vote!

Also, you can download the image files to use the Maneater in RPG Maker
