I am pleased to announce that I launched a Patreon account!
What does this mean:
- More content...
- More interaction...
- Most importantly growth!
This will not affect my public weekly posts.
This week I've been focusing on cleaning up this illustration. I went ahead flattening all my previous work then painting over, cleaning up the shapes and tones. Decided to work with the two light points; a natural night source streaming in from a near window, and the primary warm light filling in from a doorway.
Introducing some lighting options here to the 'Reading Room'. I feel like I am at a cross roads on this piece, one direction is to push through and drop down to it's foundation then rework the piece through using my current progress as a strong base. The other is to set aside the entire work as a solid concept, go back to ground zero and re-establish a new base.
For now I'm going to take a step back. Next week will be some stand alone sketches or studies.
Making some progress on the Reading Room illustration I'm working on. Now on the process of blocking out the scene, adding some details and objects to fill the story. Soon I'll have to make a strong decision on how to light the scene and the overall color composition.
Decided to put 'The Walk' aside for a bit. With the risk of it being lost in the mound of unfinished work.
Here is the next one: 'Reading Room'
I've got a work in progress for you ladies and gents this week. I plan to continue this idea into next weeks work.
