Being stuck in an airport for 4 hours gave me time to edit a slew of scans. There’s more to come, trust me.

(ROUGHLY) THE PROCESS OF A LARGE ILLUSTRATION

  1. The client wanted his character to be a “hydra” version of the original design. I’m always happy to do a little creature design on the side, and brainstormed some quick concepts for where and how to fit the multitude of heads and limbs.
  2. After cementing the basics of the main character, I drew thumbnails to figure out the poses and general elements of the picture.

    ART TIP: Get in the habit of doing thumbs for larger pieces and save yourself from hours of grief!

  3. Refining the sketch from the chosen thumbnails.
  4. GO HERE FOR ANIMATION IF PICTURE FOUR IS STATIC. 

    This commission was a collaboration between M. and yours truly. I did the initial sketchwork, background and final rendering. M. painted all of the figures up until the final frame of this .gif. Near the end I forced her to change directions on the palette and undo hours of work because I was unhappy with the colour-harmony. I still feel bad about that, but I think the result was worth it. 

    ART TIP: Do quick value/colour studies beforehand and block in larger elements before adding details… and save yourself from hours of grief!

drafts/sketches of Sauron sacrificing Númenóreans who were The Faithful

This is for my first assignment for my printmaking class this semester where we have to do a relief print of a classic book. Same assignment I did last semester with The Little Prince. Though I’m not sure if I’ll be able to do it but I really want to so I can add this work to my thesis. But my other plan was to do a print of the visions scene from Macbeth (I’ll post my sketches I did for that later). 

- Rough draft (I did this in Procreate, finally got my stylus!<3 *w*  )

- Thumbnails I did in class today

- Headdress design (though I don’t know if I’ll keep the horns)

- Original thumbnail when I was thinking about it during a lecture

new stuff~
