Chris the Dragon is Smiling

This painting was a experiment into finding the best process to make a convecting value sketch that could be developed later into a finished image. But most importantly, force my brain into thinking just value and form and avoid symbols I had accumulated and would constantly use when I was a cartoonist.

For a week I tried different ways to get into that mode. I finally figured out what works best for me tonight. I’m very excited. I spent 45 minutes on this painting, not bad for a sketch :) Its not perfect but it dose have weight and form so I am content for now :) I will continue to do value sketches this way to see how it goes :)

My method is draw motion line(s), choose vanishing point, shape sketch, test the shapes that they have weight, add a rough proximate where the lighting will hit the object, start rendering, add drop shadows, clean image.
