So for this character I had a pretty good idea in mind of how I wanted it to look, I just had to work out the details. After a few concepts I set to drawing it.
Since I knew this would be a character with 2 variations, I drew in as many elements as I could from both characters so I could split it up in photoshop.
Here is the first pass of color in photoshop, I laid down the colors I wanted and some minor values.
And here I’ve gone in and done some surface rendering and further pushed the values. After this step I went through the process of getting all my .png’s saved out for use in-game!
