Poison and Roxy Process by Robaato Poison and Roxy Process by Robaato
Here's the process gif for that Poison and Roxy I submitted a bit ago!
Batter Up+ by Robaato

A few things to note, so you guys can get an idea of how I worked this piece out:

-Sketching usually takes at least about 5-10 minutes. As you can see, it's pretty loose before I actually refine the lines up.
-The line art itself is not that clean at all! It still retains some sort of looseness even beyond the base sketch. I've learned that usually you don't have to have super clean lines all the time, even when you wanna work on a fully colored "sketch".
-Colors were flatted and I applied subtle color variation in the skin before shading. 
-I used a Multiply blending mode for shading on this. Sketchbook Pro only has 3 blending modes in addition to normal: Multiple, Add, Screen. So you have to get a bit creative and think a bit backwards with the color you choose to apply your values with, especially with Multiply as it tends to saturate things rather quickly if you're not careful. 
-Rim lighting from the right was done with 2 layers of using Add and different colors. 
-I made the image pop a bit by duplicating my line art layer and blurring the duplicated layer. It gives the image a soft feel while retaining your hard edges. 
-This Sketchbook Pro coloring process involves more color-picking than my usual process in Photoshop.

I guess that's all for my commentary! Download it, save it, pick apart the frames and hopefully you can learn something from this!

:peace:

How do you put in color without losing the outlines and without going outside the outlines?

Beautiful use of colour.
Seeing it in a work-in-progress is even more impressive.

I've been wondering how people get that look! Thanks for the tip!

Good to know that you don't have to have super clean lines in order to have a good finished piece, I'm always having trouble with sketchbook pro when it comes to clean inking :lol:

They're both fictional game characters. If you want them to be male, then go ahead. If you want them to be female, then still, go ahead. It doesn't matter what gender they are.

Very beautiful composition.  The process shows that your execution of the palette and lighting are as strong as the two lovely ladies in the scene.  As usual, you never cease to amaze me with your art.  Keep up the good work!Clap I am a dummy!

I have a question on the sketch. you said it takes you around 5 to 10 mins for your sketch. now is that for all or most of the sketches you do or just for certain ones? It usually takes me around 2 hours on a sketch because of details so I am just curious on your process?

Just a weird lil question.. I know there are rumours that Poison's a transvestite.. But is Roxy..?
(Asking because you gave Poison a different body structure and expression in comparison to Roxy, unlike most artists I've seen draw these two.)

Very cool, thanks for sharing! I really like how Roxy looks different from Poison (her larger eyes and cuter face), don't think I've ever seen anyone make them look different before.
