Colour comps for the magic box first month. I’ll be honest, I found this really, really hard – partly because I needed to do research-which I’m normally very bad at. Like most artists I know, I’ll use google images to pull up images of things that I need to draw – but this first home work called for atmosphere – and it’s not something I normally research so was really stuck. In the end I researched the things in the pic (Buddhist monk, Tibetan doors, and tibet in general) to get some ideas for colours and sort of started from there. I’ll post these and probably think about them a little more.
Ok, if you’ve followed me on my blog or on twitter you’ll know that I’ve been in something of a battle with digital drawing – occasionally digital drawing wins a fight but the war always goes to analogue.
I’ve never had any formal art training, beyond O-level (in 1986, which I failed) anything I’ve ever learnt about art has been self taught – though ‘taught’ is a rather grand word for ‘messed about until it looked right-ish’.
