Well for my second illustration project at Cal State Fullerton we were given a "Great Disasters" project in which we had to illustrate some great disaster from history. Except for the fact that we were not allowed to do 9/11 or the Titanic, something our professor got sick of seeing to much, it was a pretty open assignment. Knowing me I like to take advantage of such freedoms. I had created a pretty long list from my research and settled on doing the Hindenburg disaster and since the real cause of the fire on the Hindenburg is still a mystery I blamed: WW II Gremlins!!!
My professor managed to talk the Dean of the Art Department in letting me do the piece with a digital under painting just as long as I did more traditional methods in the creation of the final piece. So my plans are too do the under painting digitally, apply a layer of color pencil over this for the base color, then apply a clear gesso over that, add another layer of color pencil for more texture and detail and perhaps some acrylic over that.
Anyways, I would like some feedback on the composition that I have so far before I start on the under painting and then after once I have the under painting starting to progress. As always feedback in any form is welcome.
