So anyway, I went out and took some pictures around Bellingham late last night.
***Also - Just want to say thanks to all the folks that have followed, liked, reblogged, and all that in the past week or so. Means a lot!
I was playing around with some new techniques last night and came up with this. Actually, it was just a test render that I decided to do some post-work on… I’ve been doing little thumbnail studies of Sparth’s work recently, and the way he plays with light/shadow and scale is just mind-blowing. So I guess this is me trying to capture those qualities a little better.
I didn’t plan on this being something I would post, but I really kinda liked where it ended up. Wish I would have spent more time modeling and arranging the little settlement though.
Sketch dump? Sketch dump.
About once every 3 months I see something that triggers my deep seated desire to get better at Warner/Disney style line-drawing, which looks deceptively simple but is so incredibly challenging (imho) to do well because you have to have such a confident line to pull it off.
Like, you guys have seen those expression sheets from Frozen, right? Best. Fucking. Drawings. Every mark is literally perfect.
Anyway, I actually do like some of these (some of ‘em are preeetty wonky though), but you should see my rubbish pile : )
I think I just need to slow down and think about where the lines go, and practice for like ten thousand more hours. I seriously tip my hat to the people who can do this style well.
