This is the 2nd part of Esben’s Leyendecker tutorial. In part 1 you got to see him sketch out the concept of the character in Leyendecker’s style. In this lesson he takes Jett and refines the sketch further before completing the piece by painting it. As you watch you’ll get insights into Esben’s thought process on painting along with style tips and photoshop tricks that artists can use to replicate a more traditional look.
