This piece started out as a quick creature sketch for 'Legendary'. We were considering haveing some kind of Ogre in our game but soon had to drop it. I liked the gesture of the character sketch and decided to develop it into 'Spring' for a series of personal pieces based on the four seasons. There is a detail of this piece in the 'Digital' gallery section.
Original sketch (45minutes-1 hour)
Color Sketch (1-2hours)
Final fullsize line art(6-7 hours)
Final painting(15 -17 hours)
Also...I posted the piece above on ConceptArt.org and someone complained that the anatomy of the lower leg doesn't make sense. Actually, it makes perfect sense. I posted this sweet anatomical illustration to describe exactly how Mister Spring's legs really work.
