To maximise the realism of your character illustration we recommend using high quality photo references from the #1 reference website www.human-anatomy-for-artist.com
My aim in this tutorial is to show you all the steps of the work I did on this illustration.
Well. I started with some character concept drawing to find the best pose for the illustration I had in mind.
I placed the pose I did like the most in a new document and started to draw rough and big paints just to have an overall Idea of the color balance and composition.
To have an exact reference of the bricks perspective I created a poly model in Maya
and than I started to paint the background following the model perspective lines
