This week is the final week to get the competition pieces I have been posting on about for the last two weeks ready for submission today before five. Now I got the first illustration done and added an overlay layer of colour to the tonal value because I felt for the subject matter its characters needed to look and feel vibrant despite how dark the backdrop got but I feel it brings out the characters better.
|There are elements I would change in this but I think it’s at a good enough finish to submit to the competition that I hope gets my style recognized.|
I had started making very good process on the second illustration in terms of tone but liked I ranted about on facebook a couple of days ago I lost all that PS work and only ended up with a small recording from screenflow to archive what could have been a strong piece. But considering time I doubt I will even get it up to the standard I had imagined it to be. Still I will send if off as a line art drawing if worst comes to worst
anyway until next post LATERS ;)
Now I usually would restrict myself from putting up some of my early or just rough work because I have a perfectionist mind set when it comes to character design or cartoons. If the design looks out of proportion or just ugly depending on the subject I leave it alone for more than a while. Which is exactly what I did with this tablet doodle I started back in 2010 but it never was as cute as I wanted and the deer just irritated me every time I tried to redo him partly cause I was too lazy to look up anatomy and movement of the creatures back then.
I am a real sucker for this type of character design that’s partly reason why I am a Brony (le sigh).
I don’t hate most of these early designs as I should they have some nice quirky merit to them
Now today after finishing my illustration Crouse in university and altering my style and media the doodle is much more closer to how I imagined it to look like. Its not perfect but I think it archived what I set out to do two years ago (Cute and innocent).

Its crony but true when I say practice makes prefect and you will never get exactly what you envision if you do not put that extra work in which is something I have leaned throughout my years the hard way sometimes still do. ^^;
until next post LATERS ;)
