[Demonhunter Image by Xia Taptara via his blog]

The idrawgirls.blogspot.com site by Xia Taptara has a wealth of cool inspiration that I have looked at before. He has a new video up showing him speeding his way through a painting of the Diablo 3 Demonhunter. I will have to learn this technique, flowing from really rough layout, through values, then washes of colour and drawing closer to details while retaining the texture and painterly nature of the piece.
