My 2nd class project down. Along with the thumbnails and a handful of wips from along the way. Scales are hard. I have this bad habit of just sticking them on top of the critter, and forgot to make them flow around the form. Also been a long ass time since I have drawn a traditional like dragon.
Due to me being out of town for Monsterplooza, while I was able to upload my page for last Thursday to the main site, I was unable to post the link. Pages are always upload on Thursday even if I don’t post the links.
First piece for a class I am taking this spring. Some of my choice thumbnails, to the over all build up of a piece. This would have to be the most polished I have ever worked a piece, but wont be the last. Pushing lighting, value, form and details. Figuring out the hard things like anatomy, foreshortening and perspective.
Painting I have had in the works for a while. I started the sketches for this last year around the holidays. I learned that next time I will draw out all the parts on tracing paper, instead of some of them, so I know where they all lay on the board. Now to clear coat.
Some sketches with watercolors form my smaller, 3x5 moleskin. The birds I drew while standing in line for like an hour, and then later painted mostly with Imidazolone Brown glazes. The forest is mostly Quinacridone Magenta. I really like all the Quinacridone colors I have tried out, I dig the amount of layering I can work into the glazes.
