This is the editorial illustration I made of Sauron, from The Lord of the Rings.
It was made for the Swedish montly magazine Kollega (Collegue in english translation). I wrote about the illustration and the assignment a little more in detail on my blog. Read more here http://canvas.nu/stefanlindblad-blog/?p=1495
First made first drafts sketches in my paper sketchbook making studies for the look of Sauron, then moved over to Corel PHOTO-PAINT to draw and coloring it from start to end using the Brush tools in Corel PHOTO-PAINT. And my Wacom Intuos tablet.
