mrgrumble Glad you like the colors. Here's the final update; I painted in the details and scuffed him up a bit. I feel like I cheated though. The smoke was made by use the water and blur blending tool...and I was always taught the those little blender thingys were a cheat. Shrugs.
I like the design of this last one! You should polish this one! watch out for the perspective on that shoulder though on the right one. Keep sketching and figuring things out. That's the adventure of drawing, right? Holla!
I still plan on finishing up that tinman concept, but today I decided to redo the one from above of the two trees with the two birds. I just wasn't feeling it at all. It was feeling blah to me. So I redid the whole thing. I've been looking at James Jean a lot lately and you can probably see the influence. I'm still working on it..just need to get some reference of the hands and the bird...and then finish up with details.
ho! that does have a james jean feel to it, but i think it still remains quite a Snair vision one thing that i find really gives james his unqiue 'look' is his great mix of media. alot of pen and ink with acrylic on top and layers of washes...if your trying for that jean-iness perhaps you could try that instead of straight digital? dont havet o at all mate, cuz i think its lookin mighty fine as is
