I’m much less happy with this one than the first one, but I’m going to stick to this, through good and bad. This is number 2. Maybe if they keep not going well, it’ll just prompt me to do more of them to get better.
A little while ago I posted a digital comp sketch image. Here’s a snippet of the hand drawn progress of this piece.
Decided to try a new approach to developing ideas for illustrations I want to do. I’m going to do digital comps using reference photos, color, and some light photoshop work to get my idea solidified before I even start drawing. I feel like this may make the “blank canvas” a little less daunting when it comes time to actually start drawing. Here’s a teaser of what I’ve got working. I’m planning on taking my time with this one, and with trying to balance work and family life ahead of personal artwork, it will likely be some time before this piece is finished. Fingers crossed that I get to the finish line though.
