Creating a Creature Concept Piece

In this series Sander will take you through three steps to create and complete a finished polished bird concept. He starts off with thumb-nailing and initial thinking, then takes you through creating different color palettes and scenarios for the selected thumbnail. To finish it off, a final polish pass is done to emphasize the details and bring out the full composition of the design.
