Pinocchio's Workbench

Well hey there folks I wanted to post up a little something before I leave to go on vacation, I have to leave my computer and will be on the road most of the time which doesn't allow me to upload anything. So I thought I would post a lil sketch of a illustration I thought would be fun. I will soon finish up and create a clean line drawing so I can scan it in and DIgitize it :) Let me know what you think. The lighting scheme is going to be a moon lit scene coming from the left side where the widow will be.

Come Home

Well here is an illustration I did for a song about a father and his prodigal son. More symbolic than I usually do but its good to try new ways to create mood. Let me know what you all think.

Progression Is Good

Well I wanted to share with you guys my process for some backgrounds I just recently finished. Enjoy!

Layout:1 Glacier Lake

Stage:1 Sketch: mostly trying to get composition and perspective correct.


Stage:2 Value Study: Here I was trying to nail the overall tone of the piece and make sure the composition still works with the values now laid in.


Stage:3 Color: For this one I used watercolor and prismacolor to get the details sharper.


Layout:2 The Runaway

Stage:1 Sketch: Again I was trying to find an interesting composition and get the perspective right.


Stage:2 Value Study: Here I am trying to set the mood and the focal point with contrast


Stage:3 Color rendering: For this one I was inspired by the Winnie the Pooh Backgrounds. I used Inked lines with watercolor washes.
