I’ll be posting another piece tomorrow, so here’s something to build up the anticipation:
While SpAEmakesArt.com remains my primary blog and website, I’ve been posting doodles and sketches over on tumblr. If you’d like to see some more sketches, work in progress shots and unfinished things that don’t land up here, go take a peek over there. But don’t forget here.
Most of the art I’ve been making lately hasn’t been for public viewing. But here’s some stuff I can show –
Concept for a poster for Manafumi‘s Japan tour, World Colours. I kind of like the abstract mix of colours, but this idea wasn’t suitable. I tried experimenting with a more standardised bishounen look for this, and as a result the character looks generic, and not much like Manafumi at all!
So I tried my hand at some proper sketch studies…
Here is the result of about an hour and a half drawing off photographs. By the end of it, I was more focused on trying to represent what I saw correctly, in tones, rather than actually pushing his features around and experimenting with style. It was good practice, but next time I think I’ll go for a more caricatured approach.
I’ve also started up a livestream channel. I don’t have a schedule yet, but I do plan to livestream more sketch sessions! I’ll be posting notice of this on twitter.
One last picture – here are some concepts for a logo for Women in Games:
Playing with shape and form more than anything at this point. Hm.
Tonight’s sketch, because even when there are no life drawing classes on I apparently must still draw naked women. I’m thinking I need to change the colour of the sash or go with the original nude version, as the cloth is distractingly bright here.
Companion piece to ferðloca. A couple of hours, no reference.
