Alexstrasza the Life-Binder by shoomlah Alexstrasza the Life-Binder by shoomlah
I just recently blasted through Dragonblight and was rather fond of Alexstrasza's look- that combined with my friend Marissa cosplaying as her at Blizzcon got me in the mood to art again. I KNOW UNHEARD OF since I never post anymore. Apologies. :)

Would it bother you horribly if I asked how you went about doing your line art?

I really like how the super duper clean lines look, and I try to go for it, but they look...angular. Clean, but angular.

Any tips?

shoomlah Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
I think I have a natural tendency to draw angled curves? But one tip I think I can give is, rather than drawing a corner or kinked curve as one stroke, draw it as two smooth strokes that overlap and then erase the excess- that gives you more control and a smoother appearance to your finished linework. :)

I also quite like her look, she's about the only thing in WotLK that sticks out of the bland norse-looking theme, and you've drawn her quite well!

Your cartoon style always reminded me of Mike Krahulik (guy who does Penny Arcade) or John Kricfalusi (Ren & Stimpy). I like your cartoon drawings rather than realism.

Is there any way you can do a tutorial for that coloring you did on this?
Reply
:iconshoomlah:
shoomlah Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
I suppose I could! What exactly would you be looking for, tutorial wise? My methodology with this sort of thing is pretty basic, but I have been thinking about recording a Photoshop session at some point to show people how I work.

Your methodology would be of great interest. My understanding of coloring is so rudimentary that I cannot for the life of me figure out how you did such wonderful, smooth colors.

From what I can see it's cel-shading with gradients, and it would work well in both PS or Illustrator.

By the way, I can't help but love the stylization here.
