Sketchbook (Day Four)

I don't really have much to say about this sketch. I just wanted to do something different and make a bunch of little things that would have a cohesive look in the end. I started with the dresser on the top right, and all of the set's themes came from that and grew out of themselves.

Tree with Osprey Process shots

I'm still going to post my daily sketchbook page later, but right now I just wanted to post some process work of a project I'm working on right now. I did some thumbnails of potential images, and decided to do the one on the top right. 

I then began the piece: this tree with an Osprey eating a fish in one of the upper branches. I decided to go with a cooler color palette with some warm hints. I am planning to spend another 2-3 hours on this and will post the final when I am done.

Sketchbook (Day Three)

I had a little time this morning, so I thought I would post my sketchbook page a little early. A few weeks ago I overheard a conversation I thought was interesting, and so I quickly jotted it down in pencil into a comic. Then, I came back to it after several weeks and decided to go over it with ink. and a little ink wash. I ended up getting rid of the words, trying for the feeling with very basic shapes.

Sketchbook (Day Two)

Here is day two of my daily sketches. This time it's from my digital sketchbook instead of a paper one.
I was really in the mood to draw a tree, so I started one with the trunk and went where it wanted to take me. My only goal was to create a tree that was abnormal, and it ended up feeling sort of magical and a little mysterious, which I liked.
Anyways, I just had fun with it. See you tomorrow.

Sketchbook (Day one)

I have decided to post a page (or more) of my sketchbook each day. To start things off I will post this little painting I did yesterday. 
My friend (Ray Zhao) told me to paint someone about to fall, so here it is. I tried to make it super harsh and dark. I also thought that using strong diagonals and intense red would help it seem more dangerous. 
I hope you guys enjoy it, and I'm looking forward to keeping up with this everyday.
