DOTA 2 - Character Art Guide
Full PDF HERE.
Man, this is exactly the kind of stuff I’m talking about when I mention value range! The Witch Doctor before and after page is a really good example of the importance of starting with a dark value and working up. The “before” is a pretty common result of working light to dark, or starting with a value that is too close to the middle of the value range. Everything looks kind of washed out, even when working with saturated colors, and lacks volume.
This is an amazing reference overall, gonna pour over the full PDF when I have a minute.
oooh this is really helpful!! i think i’ll make some minor coloring changes according to this, i think it’ll help a lot
