This is a costuming concept for a character named Grommash in WoW. He’s going through a mid-life barbarian phase, so the design needed to sell a vibe of chaotic and violent energy. Rendering choices go a long way when selling vibe, so I stuck with a sketchier rendering technique using ink splatters and un-blended cross-hatching with this concept. Also, I generally like to take the under-drawing of an illustration to this level of detail and contrast before picking up paint, it gives you the option to let some of that sketchy pencil work show through in your final product. Which in turn helps to keep digital art looking more like traditional media. His belt buckle doubles as a bottle opener, Grommash is popular at Orc parties.
