Final monster by Artsammich
Final monster
So you can see the end of the process I uploaded.
Monster process
A process example I created for my upcoming workshop at IDEA Academy. I'll be teaching how to use painting to enhance and streamline the character design process. This process is a quick and satisfying one I learned from the masters at Avalanche. You can get a character painting done in 4-8 hours using this process.
Sailor Moon by Artsammich
Sailor Moon
Full Disclosure: I have never seen the show, so there may be a few inaccuracies.
Death Butterfly by Artsammich
Death Butterfly
I sketched this guy a while ago, intending to make fun of the trend of designing a costume and calling it character design. But once the Death Butterfly was born, finishing the painting became a moral imperative. I tried to get more character into the face as I went so it doesn't exactly match the original intention of the piece. The original post it comes from here.
Hearthstone Corrupted Mukla by Artsammich
Hearthstone Corrupted Mukla
Something I did for the latest Hearthstone expansion from Blizzard.

I'll be teaching a 3-day workshop at the IDEA Academy in Rome this summer. The workshop is going to be on how painting can be used to facilitate the character design process, both as an exploratory tool as well as a finishing tool. It's going to be a lot more hands-on training than the workshops I usually do, so if you live close enough to come you should take a look!…

Do you take request?
Artsammich Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2015
I guess I might, if it's something I want to paint/draw anyway. Not enough spare time to waste it on stuff I don't want to do.
