So I believe I'm done with the Frodo and the Rock Troll picture... at least for the time being.

I decided to try another piece using the same techniques - mainly sketch, then values, then color overlay, then painting and refining. I also decided to attempt the Manga Academy's 100 theme challenge. Here's the rough sketch with values blocked in of the first theme - Magical Girl.

I plan on adding more stuff that will make her more... magical. :X

Also for those that haven't seen, here is the final of Frodo and the Rock Troll.

It doesn't look that much different from the last post, I know, but I did do quite a bit of work on the troll's face and some on Frodo's hair and face.
