This is (unsurprisingly) another of my ImagineFX Forum weekly competition entries. Here's the brief of the competition:
|Simple pencil sketch|
Brief: "Hellboy needs a girlfriend, a female equivalent, design his perfect companion."
Pretty straight forward! I started with a couple of rough pencil sketches till I came out with what you can see in the first image. I then photographed it and created a more refined digital line-drawing.
Before going on to do the proper colour, I decided to try adding very rough quick colour, just to make sure I was happy with it, and work out the lighting.

I was quite happy with the final illustration, but I wanted something of my own that wasn't based on someone else's ideas, so after the competition I re-worked the character into a more conventional and unspecific female adventurer (which you can see as the final image).
