Black Stallion Project Progress

As mentioned previously I was taking Painting Drama, and this is part of my final project based on the Black Stallion.

Black Stallion Thumbs

The initial thumbnails were based on some random splatter and scribble based compositions and developed from there.  I decided I wanted the story to be sci-fi and the Black to be some sort of weird horse-beetle critter to make things more interesting.  I did a lot of different iterations with how bug-like the Black should be.

I also have one more image to go along with it which will hopefully be done in the next few days.

Magic Box Progress

For the magic box one of the assignments was to do a pseudo-master copy of a painting with a person in it..  Aaaaand turn them into an animal.

I used a Rembrandt painting as a base and a harpy eagle as my chosen animal.  I had some pictures from the LA zoo to use as reference.

Anyway, I did 4 different color comps based on the colors of some other pictures I had and refined the one I liked the most, which happened to be based off the original image.  Guess you couldn’t go too wrong with that.

Anyway, here’s the current state it’s in.
