New found love for drawing and Photoshop

I did a quick sketch of an indian yesterday and had a strong urge to color it, so I did! I am currently planning the animation I want to do with this shot and I am looking very much forward to see these colors in motion.
I have never really done much in color, but I am starting to get a glimpse of the incredible possibilities this aspect of the media holds in store. What I find particularly interesting and what I will try and explore with this scene, is first off how the shadow layers on the basecolor can be used to define and enhance both depth and form and second how textures, here the markings on his face and body, can add another dimension of detail and believability of form.

Below the finished picture is a breakdown of my process. It goes from the rough sketch and step by step, simplified a little, to the end result.

Hej Frederik

Kan ikke lade være med at kommentere denne flotte tegning!
Jeg synes at den er fantastisk smuk at se på. Farver og 'stil' går op i en højere enhed!!!
Hilsen mor.

I knew you had weird standards for grading drawings Marie...but -D as a grade kinda disappointed me I must say! I will do my outmost to push it up to maybe a +B, or even a straight A should your harsh critique allow it!

Thanks for stopping by :)

Hello. to me, your native American indian looks more like he's from Asia than the Northern American area. Braids, yes.. Hair up in a club, no. He needs more red undertones as well.
