Well...since some ppl asked me about how I paint, so...here is my semi-realism painting method. This is just a trial design of my OC Helios, I'm still experimenting to find the right look of him which fits with what I have in mind.
Hope it gives you a little idea about how I do it.
By the way, I won't be here until April 20 due to National Exam. OTL Sorry for not replying.

This looks great. I haven't done any semi-realistic digital painting yet. Is it pretty common to work up a full black and white "underpainting" (for lack of a better word, thanks to this "useless" old-school art degree! ) before adding color?
Seriously though, you should've just stopped at stage 3. I don't fancy at all how the lips turned out in the end. Sure, it's a matter of taste, and the final result is really well made and all, but I think that he'd be a lot more handsome if u had sticked to the original shape in the end ^^
warning! this is not a joke! carry on reading! or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!
