There Goes Tokyo.. Werewolf Style (Daily Doodle 7)

Werewolves are cool but a 200ft (60m) werewolf would take the cake. Werewolves are like dragons, they are overused too much in fantasy video games but it would feel strange without them. I did something new to paint this picture. I quickly and randomly blocked in these tiny thumbnails then I would try to ‘see’ something in the random strokes I put down. It allows room for experimentation and ‘happy accidents’. After doing a dozen of these thumbnails I made one that resembled a city and thought ‘gee a 200ft werewolf would look great in this thumbnail’ and the rest is history. Time spent: 30 minutes.

UPDATE: I noticed a significant improvement today’s doodle, simply because I took the time to do thumbnails. It also helps that I blocked in the doodle instead of relying on a line sketch. I will continue to work this way with my doodles.

I wanted to try a landscape story painting of a subject I haven’t tried yet. I decided to try a city with a heavy Chinese influence in the architecture. The painting took about 8 hours to complete, it was painted in sketchbook pro. I add a lot of little story elements in the picture for the viewer to enjoy, which also helped take the monotony out of painting details and actually makes it enjoyable. Orignally the person on the right was going to be a boy in traditional Chinese outfit, but I changed it to a girl instead. The falcon at first wasn’t glowing nor transparent originally but I found that it blended too much in the buildings so I tried lighting it up and it worked. My love for chiaroscuro has no end.
