So, we begin with one Tyrion Lannister. I guess I chose to illustrate Tyrion for two reasons. The fact that he (Tyrion) is major character within George R R Martin’s book series and also I respect Peter Dinklage as a great actor. He portrays Lannister in a way, I feel, no other could!
With this particular digital painting, I wanted to focus on capturing the character in ‘action’, showing emotion through facial expression and body language. As I tend to lean more towards conceptual / comic art, I wanted to portray my particular style of art in this piece and I think creating this work in a limited colour palette really worked with my technique.
The piece was created with Adobe Photoshop CS5 and is the first digital painting I have completed using my recently purchased Wacom Cintiq 13HD, which is pretty damn cool I might add!
