Hi everyone,

I would like to share the trailer for the project I have been working on during the last nine months.

It has been an honour to work for such legendary IP as Star Wars. My work here was to make concept art for characters, vehicles, towers, and even UI and Map elements. Give it a try, it's free for iOS and Android.

  • Mood: Optimism
  • Listening to: Origa, Zaz, Mistery Skulls
  • Reading: Blankets
  • Watching: Tumblr Artists
  • Playing: Smash Bros. 3DS


Lechuza by Novanim
Deciding the palette I will use for my character Lechuza. Done with chinese ink, traditional brushes, fine liners, and color added in Photoshop. You can find more of her and my other character Paloma here……

Any feedback is very welcome :D

Hello. I thought it is my responsability to share my process from time to time , so here it is
, Done in Photoshop CS5:

0.(Not in the picture) I make a lot of thumbnails in order to choose a convincing composition. I chose a very simple one this time.
1. Rough lines.
2. Sketch.
3. Final Lines.
4. Gradient silhouette (I somewhat define the main lightsource on this step)
5. Defined volumes, lights and shadows.
6. Added detail, texture, and cast shadows.
7. Added a simple background. Notice how I generate contrast between this background and the character placing light values next to the dark ones.
8. Added color on a different layer in "color" mode.
9. Added rim lights, bounce lights, sparks, corner glows and many others.
10. Using an adjustment layer called "Curves", I play with the different tones of the picture, until I get a satisfying result.

I hope you find this useful

Cheers to all!

A little experiment with chinese ink and photoshop gradient maps. She's Lechuza, a character I created some time ago. Part of the same world my other character Paloma lives in…
Please share your thoughts on this one, all feedback is appreciated.
