Malice and the river of fire. Illustration workflow and process

The illustration above is an old illustration I started 5 years ago. Then I was planning a greater project with the character and the world I began to write. Real life made that project impossible, I had no time to continue it, so most of the sketches ended up in some boxes. Well, enough said about that. This piece was started back in 2008, the first two steps are from then and the rest of them are only 6 months old.
