Im starting this thread for my junior thesis project. We were assigned to do 4-5 illustrations that involves "location as character", we could pick any book we like. I choose The Journey to the West because there are alot of cool scenes that i think would be really fun to illustrate.
Here is the first scene im doing. The monkey king is at the gates of the underworld, bout to go in and cause some trouble.
I did alot of sketches and finally settled with this one, i added some base color and lighting to see how it would look. the characters (monkey king and the 2guards) are not colored yet.
should i make the guards bigger...? shud i curve the top corners of the door a bit?
any comments are welcomed, composition, color, lighting etcetc. or just tips if u have done a similar scene
