I had to do a little drawing for The Killing, I COULDN’T HELP MYSELF. 
The Killing was such a wonderful show and the ending was so, so perfect. I adored it, so much so I just had to doodle something for it. I ugly cried my way through the entire thing, it was beautiful. SO MANY FEELINGS. “I never had a real house to grow up in. You know, home. I never belonged anywhere. And all my life, I was looking for that thing, you know. Thinking that it was out there somewhere. That all I had to do was find it. But I think, maybe, that home was us. It was you and me, together in that stupid car, riding around, smoking cigarettes. I think that was everything. I’m sorry. I should have known that you were one person who always stays. And you were my best friend.”Linden & Holder <3

Hi everyone! You might remember last year I released my Skillshare Character Concept Art class and that went down a storm, over 2000 of you signed up for it and it received 100% positive reviews. The support was overwhelming so thank you to everyone that took the class!
It was my intention to release the follow up on Skillshare.com again, but the site has changed considerably in the time since my first class, and it&#8217;s not the most straight forward option this time. 

The new tutorial, which is indeed a direct continuation of my first class, is now available through gumroad instead!

It&#8217;s 36 minutes long and gives you a pretty good general overview of my average colour process. I&#8217;ve tried my best to explain things as thoroughly as possible for any beginners watching, info on layer ordering, colour choices, layer modes etc. I&#8217;m sure most of you will understand what I&#8217;m doing and why I&#8217;m doing it, but I haven&#8217;t assumed that everyone will know by default. So explanations a-plenty! 

The full size PSD is included, with the B&amp;W character from the previous class and the new colour version so you can toggle between the two. My brush pack is also included, which is available all the time regardless (you aren&#8217;t paying for it!) but I&#8217;ve included it in the pack as well for convenience.

The tutorial is $9 and available to download right now! The only real difference between my previous Skillshare class and this new tutorial - is just that there isn&#8217;t a written guide to accompany it, and that&#8217;s reflected in the price. 

I&#8217;m totally open to releasing more tutorials and there will be freebies along the way, so if you have any specific requests then fire away! I should probably say that the next tutorial I have in mind will be all about painting skin! I&#8217;ve talked about it as much I can in this video, but a more in-depth tutorial is certainly on the cards.

I’m Selling an original! Something that only happens once in a blue moon being as I rarely (never) finish traditional work. 

Anyway, this painting has been with me for a while and I recently added the finishing touches. I love this thing and it pains me deeply to sell it, hence why anyone crazy enough to buy it might need to consider selling a kidney to fund it.

Around 2-3 hours I think? Photoshop CS6 &amp; Cintiq.
