With the New Year around the corner I thought about an image that would kick off 2015. I have been randomly watching Samurai Champloo late night so it’s pretty easy to see where the costume design is inspired from.
Ever so often I like to try digital painting with the short brushes it really has an effect on my character designs.
Cartoon Network recently premiered a mini series called Over the Garden Wall. It was surprisingly dark and very well done. I came across the Tumblr community’s take on the two main characters Wirt and Greg and decided to do my own take on fanart for the show.
My slight obsession with Sketch Dailies continues into the summer months apparently. The daily theme the other day was Wonder Woman. I am not to sure as to the genesis of this concept, I would like to revisit the design in a more detailed design at some point.
With World Cup right around the corner I wanted to do a sketch of a character based on the home team colors. I ended up scanning it and finishing the entire concept in Photoshop. Ever so often I like to post a visual walkthrough so people can see the steps I take in my creative process.
After the image is redrawn in Photoshop, color values are added afterwards a heavily dithered and distorted background image is inserted in the background.
Ever so often I like to post a visual walkthrough so people can see the steps I take in my creative process. Once the final sketch is done it’s scanned. After scanning the line art has color values added along with gradients and shadows based on light source. It’s always fun to think of something loud for the background sometimes.
