More character concept art. This is the Prince of the Black Forest. He also still doesn’t have a name. :(

Finally getting around to scanning some of my work from my concept art class last semester. This little moth dude was what I drew when I got frustrated with the assignment, then he ended up in the final set of characters sketches. He still needs a name!

All I can draw right now are gay swimming boys.

Quick photos of the ‘finished’ (for critique at least) pieces. Critique went well and more positive than I anticipated so feeling pretty good! Looking forward to revisiting these once I get them back from grading.

My poor coloring skills come to bite me again… The colours need more work but my bed calls to me. Decisions, decisions.

Work in progress concept art! I’m about 110% mentally done with this assignment, but dang I like how these look all inked up. Hopefully my poor coloring skills don’t muck ‘em up.

I’ve fallen down the rabbit hole and there is no turning back. 

I regret nothing.

Hey look more colour sketches from class! I love having an Illustration class again; I get 2.5 hours of just pure drawing and painting and whatever I want and it’s more than I’ve had in so long. My teacher said in not-so-many words that my last colour scheme was plain and predictable and, since I’m making my own world here, I decided to take that critique to heart and explore a different palette. I’m feeling pretty good about these and am looking forward to working on the finals. 

Also hot damn it feels good to work in coloured inkwashes. It’s so fast and I can explore a lot more and I colour things so rarely that seeing things I do in colour is exciting to me haha. I need to do more of this. 

Results of my Workspace Wednesday today and planning in class for my next assignment. We have to do 2 ‘scene sketches’ to portray the atmosphere of our story. This is my first time doing little colour sketches in my sketchbook in this manner and I really like it! I have to push the colours a lot more but it’s a good place to start.
