4 velociraptors -sketches – 1st pass

20130616-235611.jpg

After having diner with my friends at a brewery. We had interesting talk about which friends we knew would win in a fight of various monsters and such, including Sasquatch, megaman, and velociraptors. After such a enlightening chat, I wondered what my friends would look like if they where velociraptors. I sketched these on what I remembered a velociraptor looked like from memory ( I had no wifi at the time) and sketched these in haste. At first I wasn’t going to add any clothing or hair, but it was next to impossible to portray each friend exactly, so I gave in. I added feathers in the back because they where wearing shirts and need feathers elsewhere. They are very rough doodles but still funny, if I do anther pass with these characters I make them more accurate. Drawn on my iPad using Procreate. Time spent: about 50 minutes

Wolf concept sketch for next illustration.

I’m taking my illustrations seriously.  I need to push myself to improve with each project, with each drawing. So I am trying to figure out everything before even commenting a single line on a virtual canvas. Doing thumbnails and concept sketches of a complex scene with five characters interacting with each other(a wolf, a dragon, a cat, a monkey and a gryphon bird thing) in a very low vanishing point.  after refining the thumbnail of my choosing. I’ve  made a simple 3d analog of the scene as a reference so I could experiment with the lighting and get the lighting correct. Now doing some concept sketches of the characters and what outfits they will be wearing. Here’s the first one. It will probably take me a week total to complete. Also had fun with bounce lights, I love bounce lights. The wolf’s armor is inspired by medieval armor and video game outfits. Time spent, 1 1/2 hours:  Painted in Photoshop.
