Well folks, it's about time I created my own little sketchbook here at ConceptArt. So... ehrm.. here it is!
Edit: Misunderstood sketchbook rules, did a bit of fumbling around, found out I had done everything right, left the thread as it were :-)
I'll start off with a little project I'm working on nowadays. It began as a sketch on paper, namely this one:
I decided I liked the creature so well I wanted to try giving it more form by painting it digitally. As I said I'm still working on it, so I'll post images as I go along.
I started by importing into my paint prog and laying down the "outline":
Sadly, I don't have time (at the time being) to work continuously for hours on end, I'm limited to approx. half an hour a day or so of painting, resulting in bad continuity, bad focus and concentration, and little progress. Anyway, this is as far as I've got now:
I decided to make the creature's limbs a bit more "believable" than the sketch suggests. Keeping the original limbs would probably make the creature more "comic", but I don't think that's what I'm after - anyway I can probably express some sort of comedy when I get as far as the face of the creature.
Keep watching this space, more coming up!
