    This Illustration is the second concept designed for the character called Turin Turambar of an entertainment series (under development) inspired by one of the tales inside J.R.R. Tolkien book, The Silmarillion. The first approved concept was a clay sculpture built to create this character main volume and forms. Then, this illustration was made targeting materials, textures and colors. It was first sketched with HB pencil, then redrawn digitally with Adobe Photoshop, printed over Blick Mixed Media paper and later painted with Caran d'Ache Water colors, scanned and given final detail with Photoshop again.

"Character Concept Illustration of Turin Turambar" Digital & Watercolor on Cotton Paper.
This Illustration is the second concept designed for the character called Turin Turambar of an entertainment series (under development) inspired by one of the tales inside J.R.R. Tolkien book, The Silmarillion. The first approved concept was a clay sculpture built to create this character main volume and forms. Then, this illustration was made targeting materials, textures and colors. It was first sketched with HB pencil, then redrawn digitally with Adobe Photoshop, printed over Blick Mixed Media paper and later painted with Caran d'Ache Water colors, scanned and given final detail with Photoshop again. Below, are some of the previous sketches showing the illustration development. The final art presented above was designed trying to maintain the most verisimilitude to the book's description of his aesthetics during a specific part of the story.
Above, the printed design (left) with the final colors (right) and an angrily shredded sketch.
Above, the final digital sketch. The face lost some wrinkles and expressions after printing.
Above, the base sketched in Photoshop to fix some angle distortions of the original pencil sketch. Below, original sketch done really quick on paper.
