This piece is the third character that I have created for personal work; a dark magician with cool looks and a gloomy, cold personality. I wanted his costume to not be too armoured, but to be more modern-looking, and I intended to have the space featuring some magical steel on the wall, and so I started doing research and finding references to help me on my way.
Here are some costumes I found on GQ web. One of the outfits is actually by my favourite fashion designer, John Galliano. So I tried to aim for the
same feeling in my character’s clothing design (Fig.01 and Fig.02).
3D Work :
I started in 3D first of all, because I wanted to get an exaggerated perspective, and I figured 3D would help a lot. So I went to Maya, where I started to model some simple basic shapes as references (Fig.03).

"Making of Orc" by Abraao Lucas I like to draw illustrations that explore strength, anatomy, etc., so I decided to draw an Orc because it embodies characteristics. I wanted to explore these elements by showing that even though this warrior is alone he is not
intimated by his enemies.
"Making of To The Waterfall" by Wanchana Intrasombat I always draw inspiration from everything that I am interested in at a particular moment, such as movies, fine art,
eating noodles etc. For To The Waterfall, the concept idea came from a doodle that I had done in my spare time.
