Process in making the Digital Art:
• To begin with, like I always do in my previous posts, I do a rough sketch of the character. I find the face a little peculiar, so first I sketch the face base on the card, its in the upper left corner in this sketch. Just copy the design base on the card. Next on the upper right I tweak some features in his face. Third in the lower left corner, I stylized the face of the character. And finally the last sketch where I am happy with how it looks.

•Second in the process is take that sketch and define its outline. We could also say an inking process but digitally.

•Third in the process is adding Mask Layer underneath the outline.

•Fourth, adding Shadows. This is my favorite part on my process. Just a grayscale output.

•Fifth, with a multiply layer on top, add your local colors. In this case I put like a pinkish color for the body, green colors in the clothes, brown and gray on the pickle axe.

•Sixth, this is only my own preference. I add an overlay layer on top of the character to lighten up its color. And also add color to the background for clarity. Shadows underneath his feet.

•Just slowy add overlay on top of another overlay layer.

•Seventh, render the colors to your heart's content.

•Adjust some color quality, brighten up your character.

•Finally, I add some border and Splinterlands Logo for finishing touch. That's it we're done!

Absolutely! A huge thanks to you brother and also my mentor. I learned a lot from you and I hope someday I can pay all this gratitude. I will be starting a much more complex design and you will be the first one to view it soon. I will be away for a couple of months or so, to really focus this goal in my mind. To deliver outstanding quality. This will be my last fan art entry for now, in the contest. I hope people will see the true value of this contest and for the people behind this, I will mention @castleberry here, a brother of kindness and hardwork. Bless of luck in our journey here! Have fun on HIVE! It's for everyone, community and for the people who build this platform.

Great as always, dude. Loved the colors, specially on the candle. Very different from the card itself and it is very significant.

Keep them coming for I can watch them all day long!
