Jump (Final)

Ok it's not quite done, but it's really close. I just have to run it by the lovely Sara for one last critique.

Jump (WIP 1)

I've carved out some of the background and I'm now scratching my head about the greenery at the top. It needs some experimenting I think. I haven't quite got what I want yet. Mostly ignoring the figure and her rope for now.

Jump (Color Study)

I've worked out the color study for this. The magenta is so fun that I don't care if it's blinding people. Now, on to painting details and textures.

Jump (line drawing)

I had Sara look over the last sketch and she pointed out the angle of the head was incorrect. I fixed it and I'm hoping this works a little more naturally. She also coerced me into doing a more challenging background, which is probably a good thing ;)

Jump (Sketch)

I worked through several thumbnails while developing on Sara's theme of "tomb raiding". This one ended up retaining the most energy when translated to something larger. Now on to fixing up a line drawing, ooooh fancy.

Alley Final

Here's the final for my first Sara project. Onwards, to number 2! So far, the sketches are shaping up to be some actiony tomb raiding excitement. More to come soon.

Alley (WIP 2)

I'm getting closer to being finished. I'm just now starting to tackle the details and textures in the buildings.

Alley (WIP)

A quick update before bed. I'm really getting into this! I've progressed a good bit further since the last post. I nailed down a lot of the basics. Now to go in, clean up and add detail things I've been avoiding. That left arm on mr. foreground dude is still wonky. Still too short maybe? The hand certainly needs to evolve past lobster.

Sara, I know you're going to rib me about the lady, because I have a feeling she's starting to look like me. I was trying to fight it, but at some point I just caved. Woe is me, my weak will.

alley prelims

An illustration I'm working on for my crit/portfolio buddy Sara. So far I've worked out the line drawing and some initial color ideas.
