Neither artist was afraid to completely re-work the design and the composition, subjects, and colours change dramatically. It's a good reminder not to be afraid to scrap something that's not speaking to you and that sometimes it's better to rebuild from the groud up.
A few quick film studies, mostly focuing on backlit figures.
Another landscape study I did recently. It took a lot of work to get the rock looking halfway decent, and I'm still not 100% happy with it. I'll just have to keep whacking away at it.
Another study of an Edward Moran painting, The Swimming Hole.
In advance of the upcoming Easter Holiday, a little afternoon doodle of my favourite muppet with some Easter features.
Just a quick 20 min study of one of the houses in my neighborhood.
After doing a couple of of my Wainscott Weasel characters I went looking for nice fur painting tutorials. I found this School of Visual Storytelling demo with Therese Larsson to be the best. It's not a step-by-step tutorial, but the video provides a great overview of her general technique as well as insight into life as an extremely successful (and busy) illustrator; and it also comes with a set of photoshop brushes.. At $20 (£13.30 at the current exchange rate) its a bargain.
A quick Sunday afternoon landscape study from my climbing trip to the Peak District this past autumn. Cannot wait for Spring and sunnier days!
A couple more characters for my personal project: Bagley Brown and a little lost mole.
Working on a personal project in my spare time. Here's one of the main characters - Zeke, a real stud of a weasel.
A quick landscape study from yesterday afternoon.
