I want to draw dark heroes all the time with their faces hidden by dark cloaks. They have strong bodies, gorgeous armor and hunt humankind's soul.

In the preliminary phase, when thinking about the composition, I tried to diversify the gesture and apparel as much as possible, whilst still trying to keep to the concept I had in my head (Fig.01).

After comparing my sketches I chose the sketch of the death knight in the top left, because the war horse and the floating cloak have a sense of power and influence, which worked with my initial thought and give me space to develop the idea.

The next step was to begin to refine the draft that I had already chosen. I started to build upon my initial idea and, without thinking too much about the relationship between the colors, made use of a variety of brushes to confirm and build upon the relationship between the dark and light areas (Fig.02).
