Character illustration of a witch I created. I sketched, colored, and rendered it completely in Procreate. My primary aim with this piece was to explore fabric folds and smaller detailing in the costume design. Done as personal work.

I started with a base sketch of the body and pose and then dressed it in layers of clothing with overlapping sketches. Once I had a design down I liked I moved to lineart and then a value map (right). When I felt happy with that I continued on to color my grayscale piece. The coloring took me some time as I had an idea for the original color scheme that didn’t end up working out. I had to play with it quite a bit especially since all the colors I chose were pretty dark. As a final touch I added in a background for some pop.
