Sketching

Before starting with the actual drawing, I first of all decided on the composition by creating a simple sketch (Fig.01).

Drawing

Once I was happy with the pose, I started drawing. In order to dress the figure correctly, I defined the structure of his muscles very loosely (Fig.02).

Drawing the Costume

I created a new layer and, keeping the layer with the figure underneath, I drew the costume on the new layer (Fig.03).

Finished Line Art

After completing the costume, I erased the parts of the figure that it covered. I merged the layers and did a very basic hatching in order to add dimension to the drawing. This process was going to be helpful in the rendering stage later (Fig.04).

Creating the Background

I started on the background with one of my texture brushes (Fig.05).

After finishing blocking in the background, I lit up the parts where the figure was going to be placed, and used a soft round brush to create a stone wall (Fig.06 and Fig.07).

To make the background more interesting, I drew a wooden framework with a couple of wheels connected to it (Fig.08).
