Eleonor. Portuguese. Artist.

This is a place for everything I find yummy. Usually illustration, concept art, Mass Effect, Dragon Age, Assassin's Creed, Skyrim, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Hunger Games, A song of Ice and Fire - Game of Thrones, etc.

Occasionally I post my own art as well, which is tagged as 'my art' but I have an art tumblr (see the links).

Tag me as 'croissantauchocolat'
I am also 'gravity-zero' on deviantArt.

❝ smallroarpresstoo asked: Do you do sketches before you start your illustrations, or do you just sort of jump right in? Also, how long does it take usually to finish? P.S. Your art is amazing!

nicolasdelort:

Usually I’ll start with a bunch of thumbnails.
Thumbnailing is a great way to keep your composition down to simple shapes and not get lost in the details. If the thumbnail doesn’t work, basing a sketch out of it is probably not a good idea.
When I have one I like, I scan it and blow it up in photoshop, move around the elements until the composition is satisfying (that can take a looong time — move it one millimeter to the right..hmmm no up one millimeter..hmmm still not perfect etc etc)… and when I’m happy with the composition, sketch over it.

Even though mistakes are fixable —to a certain extent— it’s impossible or really hard to make big changes (move something, make something bigger, rotate a character… stuff that takes about 3 seconds in photoshop) once you start the ink process; so the one thing I make sure before transferring the lineart on the board is that the composition is tight and everything is exactly where I want it to be.

So, on the sketch itself, everything is where I want it to be, but certainly not as detailed as it’s going to be in the final. I print it out and transfer it on the board with carbon paper. All I need are the general shapes and then, I improvise a lot of the details.

Here’s an example. 
1. A very basic sketch.
2. Basic sketch after feedback from AD
3. Polished sketch
4. Value mock-up
5. Final

Even though I’m still working on my contribution to LGAL’s Animystics, I figured I’d share some of the process - studies, a first draft of the character, reference photos (that picture of me courtesy of my friend Vítor) and a sneak peak at the current state of the illustration. A lot of work to be done, but I’m getting there!

That sketch you see up there was my first attempt at my little fox. It’s considerably different than the final, but it will be part of the show in some capacity.

I will most likely do a Livestream again as I work on this, tomorrow night. Stay tuned!
