Digital Artist Magazine Create Fantasy Art with Vectors

  • This tutorial focuses on getting to grips with fantasy art using Illustrator.
  • Initial Ideas and Sketch.
  • Look at pictures for reference and sketch out ideas.
  • Hair/Fur Detail
  • This is the most time-consuming part because it involves drawing each individual hair to give a more organic and natural feel.
  • Face
  • I rework the face, making some of the features bigger such as the eyes and the lips. I also introduce, through a gradient mesh, light from the moon onto her cheek and forehead.
  • Final Image
  • The final image as it appears in issue 33 of Digital Artist Magazine.
  • Published Article
