Hello guys, how you been doing?
This week i thought a lot about this character from @Splinterlands and i came up with this idea where The Pyromaniac is having a real hot burning meal and i think it would be great to share the whole process with you, guys.

Here's the original idea:
you can see some of the sketches here

To make it look good i had to take a picture of myself posing and simulating the light i was gonna use in the piece... so, here's me everybody:


Using photoshop i desaturated the picture and brought some contrast to make it more easy to sketch over:

After the rough lines were done i started to draw the bold lines
