I've been thinking for a while about something that is too detailed to concisely express through a Facebook post, yet engaging enough to follow in a blog. I finally came up with something that y'all might kinda sorta be interested in: showing the concept sketch for a piece of art, then explaining how it
I should also note that since the night my computer enjoyed a glass of champagne, some things haven't run quite the same - for instance, the connection between my computer and scanner. Fortunately, I hooked my scanner up to my sister's computer and it's running swell, but Em's computer doesn't have any imaging software, so I now have to 1) scan the image using the Scanning and Camera Wizard, 2) save it as a bitmap, 3) open it up with MS Paint and save it as a jpeg, 4) email it to myself, and 5) download it onto my own computer and doctor it up in Photoshop. It's... kind of awkward.
Anyway. Onto the goodies.
This is my sassy fairy. She was one of the few that didn't change much between sketch and final.
Well, her wings changed a little to better reflect her mood. (BTW, I think this to myself about a thousand times a day at work.)
Here's one where I made a few tweaks to make it more engaging.
For the final one, I moved the lion's head up a little and adjusted the bunny's position so she was bending over more... I thought it made their poses a little more dynamic. I also gave the lion some curls and a swishier tail to give him more personality.
(I'm not sure who the chick on the bottom was supposed to be.)
In the final one, her expression changed so now she looks more like she knows what's going on and maybe even has a hidden agenda. I didn't really intend for this to happen; it just kind of turned out that way. I guess that's where my mind is...
Also I made the elf's feet bigger... he already had such big hands and head, I didn't want him to fall over.So that's all for now... more to come later! (I promise I'll try to be better about updating this blog!)
