I have been wanting to develop some of The Worlds a little more. So I decided to create a full illustration based off of some color studies that I did a few weeks prior. This is the Timeless Abyss, and Gair and Piko are celebrating and bonding and being friends after participating in the World K Tournament.
These were the initial thumbnails that I did a few weeks prior.
I decided to stick with this thumbnail for the composition.
Then I sketched over the thumbnail study.
I decided to go lineless with this one, so this step took a lot longer than usual. I blocked in all of the colors.
Then I started blocking in some shading.
Worked on shading some more things in.
I started adding some textures and re-positioned Gair.
Started adding in more textures and refining things.
And the final piece before adding in the lights!
