Quick, rough sketches inspired by GW2. Mesmer and Sylvari.
Here’s the grayscale render as well as a few color mockups that I did for the background.
As for process, I rendered everything completely in grayscale. I then went in and started laying colors on top. I used multiple layers for overall color, highlights and shadows with several repetitions and finally went back with a regular layer on top and added some finer details.
This probably won’t be my Sylvari’s final look, but I really loved how the one I made for the stress test looked and had to paint it. I’m going to go over it for the glowy bits that show during the night, but I’m happy with the normal look so I gotta show it!
