Country paint

Spent a day developing this from a thumbnail. I began with a series of quick thumbnails, and then developed the best composition. I worked in colour from the start, as im trying to practice my colour mixing in photoshop. It feels like i have more control over the mood and atmosphere, rather than if i was working mainly in greyscale (as ive been doing with a lot of my environment pieces). Cheers for looking.

Pencil Sketch - Poster composition

A pencil tone study of a poster i'll be painting as part of a university assignment. im still tossing up whether to do it digital or acrylic. i havnt touched acrylic for many months and this would be a good excuse to get in some more practice, but digital is faster. hmmm...

Finished Space Opera scene

I decided to call this one quits. Im getting waaaaay too caught up in the fine details when really, i shouldnt. Im happy with the colour palette, and the perspective is pretty spot on. I think its a real step forward for me.

Finished Greyscale... on to colour!!!

Hey dudes, finshed off the greyscale study and am now onto colour. I figure the rest of the details can be applied to the colour paintover. I am having trouble painting people and objects into 3d space. So i need to practice that over the uni break with pencil and paper. Cheers for looking
