Digital Color Pass

I had planed on this painting to be a semi refined color pass at my final acrylic illustration but I kind of zone out when I get into rendering mode. It turned out to be much more detailed then I had planned but i solved many problems that I'm not sure I could have figured out with Acrylic.

As you can see, I didn't stray to far from my first color comp. I got a ton of great feedback from my friends and an especially great crit from Goro too! Thanks everyone! Anyway, here it is! time to bust out he paint and brushes.

Color comps

Here's a few color comps. I'm not sure if Im really a fan of any of them yet. Though if I had to pick one I'd go with the top left one... the first one I did, of course!

I studied a lot of Nathan Fowkes and Bill Cone for these.

Forest Revision

Last Thursday I attended my first DLP critique. I was nervous and excited at the same time. but I learned so much. They gave me a great critique on my forest piece. I jotted some notes down and tried to fix as much as I can. Here are the results. I still have a ways to go but I think I'm almost ready to start laying in some color.

1 more tree

Hopefully this will be the last design my tree goes through. Time to move onto compositions.

I have no figure drawing class this semester but I've been doing muuuuuuch more figure drawing then i had been doing when i did have figure drawing classes. I think I've been doing something like 15 hours of this a week.... funny how that is.

all between 5 and 20 mins
