I started working for a new client. I am super happy and will soon be able to publish, who it is.
Until then I can at least show the studies I did for the 3 illustrations I did for them.
I wanted to get more efficient this time, so I studied an artist who is famous for being efficient with brush-work and shapes.
I really love the way he only focused the details in his paintings on the main - focal -areas.
So I did studies and sketches, trying to do the same. I also applied the knowledge I gained and the used the brushes I created, on the assignments by my new client.
So here are most of the studies and sketches I did for the job.
I found out, that there is sort of a quick way to make something look finished. And it is by giving it a clear shape. If a shape is clear and sharp, it looks more fone, than a mushy, vague shape. So comitting to a shape is a great way to safe time in the design process.
Anyways, if you have questions, feel free to ask :)
The sketch from memory
I have joined "Hire an Illustrator". It is a community of very skilled illustrators, looking for job opportunities. Go check it out!
This is my latest illustration
It was done as a christmas-present for my brother. Also I just really dig Warhammer40K.
This is a Blood Angel apothecary, which is perfect for my brother, since he is a pharmacist.
This time I started using a new technique, namely Channels.
You can use the channels for red, green and blue seperately to add strong color notes. I used that especially for the background, but I can't wait to use them for other things too!
Have a great new year!
This is my blog.
I will share information about workflow, my insights into image-making or just general thoughts and rants about being an artist.
