I recently did an art trade with Captain Seawolf on Deviant Art. I normally am not a huge fan of the site, but I was looking around and came across an art trade that looked interesting. So I offered to join in on round one. I felt this was a good time to work on my process a bit. When dealing with someone else's idea, you have to be careful. In this case, the character was already thought out in someone's head. They knew their personality, background, and what they ate for breakfast. So how do you internalize someone else's character, and interpret it in your own way? The only way I know how is with lots of drawing.
