I need a reboot, lately I've been doing a lot of concept/production work and very little illustrative work. Sorry :( I wanted to post work that reflected my current goals but I was worried to do it on this blog since it was mostly my illustrative work. I pretty much never update this blog because of it. Anyways, I want to be a little more free about what I post and talk more about my processes.
These are a set of color thumbnails for a storyboarding study I'm working on. I want to improve on my shitty composition skills so I took a movie and tried to dissect a sequence. I'll upload the final product later.
This one started out as a environment study of a shanty town. The technique I wanted to try out here was to thumbnail, use Google Sketch up to set up a rough model forperspective, then pencil and detail it in PS. I find that in a production environment, using Sketch up helps a lot to speed things up. It's free and very easy to use but very limited compared to other 3D apps. This limitation is actually a plus in my books because it stops you from leaning on 3D too much.
