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 :)
