Daily Sketch - C-3PO and Darth Vader Sketch Cover Process!

Today I decided to sketch the Golden Robot himself C-3PO. I had a lot of fun drawing this guy, I really like rendering metal, I would like to get better at it. Also I decided to put up some of the process for the Darth Vader Sketch Cover. Let me know if this is something you guys like to see. I would also like some suggestions as to what you would like to see in this website. Hope you guys dig it!

Tools I used:

  • non-photo blue mechanical pencil
  • Sakura Micron pen
  • Pentel Pocket Brush
  • Watercolors
  • Photoshop for color adjustments and FX

C-3PO

First I start with a real loose sketch to get the layout how I want it and little by little I start to tighten it up.

Then I ink it up!

Finally I put some colors down. I experimented with watercolors this time but it wasn't so easy. The watercolors were stubborn and did not want to stick to the paper... For the light saber and other areas that cover the logo I used gouache.
