Process Time

Well finals are over and life is better! here was a layout I did last semester but I decided to paint it now. I wanted to give another process post to show what I do. Hope yall enjoy!

Step One: Rough Perspective perspective is the key to making the space believable

Step Two: Clean line line weight variation is important to create more dynamic depth within a flat line drawing

Step Three: Paint color relations are key to creating a harmonic painting. The colors might not be the exact color compared with natural lighting but to create a emphasis and a mood, the relation between those colors on the page must be correct which will make the painting that much more believable

Getting ready

Well hey there folks I have been crazy busy with school and have been painting more. Here is a Vis Dev background I did in painter. I'm debating on whether have the texture lay in on the ground and the wall or not so help me decide. Thanks and enjoy

Step one: Here is the rough pencil sketch.

Step two: Here is the color version done in Painter.

Step three: I dropped it in in photoshop to lay in texture but am not sure whether to keep it or lose it. What do you think?

Gouache is my new best friend...

Well I recently purchased a nice arrangement of gouache paints and have been told they are hard to work with.....I have been having a ball with them!! I really enjoy watercolors but at times I would like to paint a little quicker without being scared of going too dark. I'm working on a group project for a animation short next semester and am in charge up BG's layouts, painting, and color keys. I'm working on some Vis Dev stuff right now. Here are a few of my Gouache studies I have been playing around with the last few days. Enjoy!

Some Plein Air painting

Well here are a few of the watercolor paintings done at Irvine National park ( which I didn't even knew existed) and one from Crystal Cove. I have some more but I need to scan them in in pieces or take a photograph because they are a lil larger. But let me know what you think, (side note: I just purchased a whole gouache setup and will be trying that out coming up so wish me luck I hear it can be tough) Enjoy

Well Hey there folks! I was asked by a very good friend to design a sweatshirt design for their Student Orientation Service also called "S.O.S". So I tried to play on that stranded island SOS theme with a a Shag like style. There might be some difference between the final print and this but I am still playing around with some other ideas. I hope you enjoy!
