I recently played the video game Ryse. I enjoyed it so much I had an urge to draw a little bear themed soldier 😛 I scanned my sketch in and finally got round to working on it. I created this value painting using a Wacom Cintiq 13HD which was kindly lent to me by a friend for the weekend. It was really interesting to use and made line work much easier. On the flip side I did find it a bit too small to work on, if I were to invest in one for myself it would have to be the 24″ version.
I would like to refine this guy a little bit more in the near future. Try and design an interesting motif for his shield and add some colour!
