I just remembered this morning that I never posted my accepted entry to the Darkstalkers contest on the blog. I had a lot of fun working on this and want to thank Udon for the awesome book. If you haven't seen it yet you should go check it out here. I have a couple more doodles and ideas of other characters that I was toying with for the contest that I will post but I need to dig them up first. I was also wondering if anyone would be interested in seeing my rough ideas for this image? I have quite a few that show how I work in the beginning stages before I take it into Photoshop.
not the most beautiful sketches in the world but you can see the progression of the idea starting from top left and moving horizontal left down to the bottom right where I took it to photoshop to finish. I try to keep these kind of sketches really quick and really rough so I don't get attached to anything more than the broad strokes and the big picture of what I am working on. Normally won't spend more than a couple minutes on each image.
