Vali The Leader (Happy Christmas!)

Hey everyone, I have just finished a character concept and thaught to share it with you - but since it's Christmas time I want to be generous. Just a small gift from me! I wanted to show and help you (especially you beginners) how I did this painting from start to finish. It's always nice to see different approaches. I have written the most valuable information and my tips in the WIP. Also I want to give you something more -- I have uploaded also 2 underpaintings I did that I use sometimes either to get some texture, or to start off the painting. One tip I can give you if you don't know how to use them is to tweak their size and angle, sharpen them, desaturate them, change the Hue & Saturation and adjust the Levels. ;)

Oh, just one last gift, I have also uploaded my color palette. It's quite similar to Xia's but I have added some things that I find quite useful while I'm painting. Hope you find it useful as well.

Let me guys know what you think, especially you my brother Xia! Hope you see some more improvement. Your feedback helps me and motivates me a LOT! :)

Love the Art Work Vali. And thanks for the freebies. Hopefully more of those who are further ahead than the rest of us will follow your lead and share their knowledge. The more information shared, the more we grow, the better we get. Thanks again.
