Fire Emblem art commission
This was a commission work of two characters from the Fire Emblem game. As always, I start all my commission works with sketches which I send to my clients. In this case, character height was the main thing that I had to change before I proceeded on to the next stages of the drawing. I also send the lineart to my clients for approval. The last thing I do is work on colors. In this case the coloring method I used was cell shading (it has subtle shading).
I did two sketches in this case: the first one for a rough compostition, and another that includes the changes that the client wanted. Most changes happen in this stage and typically I end up making two sketches (usually with minor changes).
