A completed drawing for a book cover I have been recently commissioned for. The characters were created and designed by the author Anthony Briggs Jr. Feel free to check out his website here www.talesfromyod.com
I always like to get the drawing of a painting to around this level. From here i can plan the color pallet and lighting of the scene. Of course as a painting comes into creation, it at some point or another takes a life of its own and changes will naturally develop.
