The Jabberwocky: Phase 5-details and global lighting
Here's just the long rendering process of finishing all the shapes i started. I start by using a large airbrush and filling in areas of light and dark, then, after the light sources are fixed I just go from form to form and add the appropriate lighting. I also add a frimulous bandersnach with a spiral snout under the hero just as little something to add some life the forest. This part is by far the longest and I tend to put on a podcast, and just fall into a groove. Call it 'combing the flea' or 'mowing the lawn' or whatever, either way it's detail-oriented, systematic and can be a little boring if you don't have enough decisions to make, but can also be very therapeutic.
