Also sketched out some ideas for the CHOW this week. Won't be able to finish for the deadline but I like the mohawk lady design, might work it up. - The one laying down is from ref, the others are from imagination.
I think the c.o.w. creature is great! It's the first creature design I've seen from you. It may be a bit sketchy and not as polished as you'll usually see around the C.O.W, but I think your concept is very successful. It's nice you've put those notes there, they really show your thoughts behind the concept. The design really serves a purpose.
I'm also noticing the caricatures are getting stronger. They seem more realistic. Which is a funny thing to say in this context, but there's credibility to a caricature as well.. right? Keep doing studies every now and then I'd say. Like that fashion study on previous page - some very strong value placement. You can implement that directly.
Love the etchings. I can imagine it takes quite some planning, especially as the result is sort of a 'reverse' of the drawing. Really pans out nicely in some areas. Think the second etch in #229 looks downright frightening though!
Thanks Anthis for the nice comments. The Betty Page etching does look a bit scary in negative doesn't she! I'm hoping the etching turns out prettier I really enjoyed the COW too, thanks for the confidence boost. Feel like things are coming together now in Photoshop still got along way to go. Cheers again
Here's an update on Aiden. Got to put his mountain bike in there somewhere, was going to put it to his right but might have to change the dimensions of the pic a bit...hmmm
