I find it really intimidating to do a whole piece, so I decided to do it in little steps. First outlines, determine light sources, draw light and shadow areas with lines, doing gray scale and last but not least colors. It's still a really big task, so let's see how far I get.
I also started to do landscapes this week. All from imagination right now. But I will start to do studies soon. Beside from that I tried to draw one character over and over again with different expressions. Also did thumbnails and concepts. Most productive week so far this year. And it has only started :D
