One of my favorite projects so far at Art Center was the one for Imaginatomy. I do really enjoy making creatures, so it was right up my alley. We had two real projects that semester (a human ecorche and the creature itself), but at this point I’m just going to post about the critter itself.
Currently being updated. However, here’s the first pass of what is lurking around in my portfolio. It’s still missing a few items, and I need to collect a few older pieces as well, but for now, this is what I’ve got. I will be going through and hopefully adding some more detailed posts about certain items too, so keep an eye out.
So I finally finished up the Crystal Shop image.
There weren’t too many changes from the previous version. I softened the edges on the cast shadow in the foreground and simplified both the clouds and the fabric in the foreground. Other than that, I think I’ve pretty much ranted about everything I wanted to so just enjoy.
So for background painting this semester we were given the choice to illustrate backgrounds for either the children’s book, Jerome the Frog, or The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. I went with The Alchemist mainly because I wanted to do more desert themed stuff. (Maybe one day I’ll even go back and re-redraw VC or something, can always hope.)
Anyway, I ended up picking the scene in the book where it introduces the crystal merchant and how the hill his shop is on has recently been avoided by the local shoppers and that sort of thing. I still have some editing to do on the final piece, but here’s what’s been done so far, plus my awesome commentary.
