Did some sketching while on a mini spa break, here I used my trusted pocket brush pen again. It was a glorious day lots of sunshine a grand building and lots of lounging ladies!
Went to the MCM London Comic Con on Friday. These are two little sketches I drew in the games section, I used my trusty Pocket Brush Pen. The top image is the queue for the VR section and the bottom a little kid glued to the console with the gallery of famous people behind him.
A quick play with atmospheric lighting, here again I have just used gradients to colour the whole image. I think I would like to revisit this at a later point and play with some colour comp variations.
Just a quick sketch this week, coloured only with graidents! :D
On Saturday I participated in a Virtual Animators lecture 'Animation Insights With Pascal Campion' where he demonstrated how he approaches panting water. Two words.. MIND BLOWN!
Wow, having never really thought about attending online lectures, until joining the equally mind blowing Oatley Academy Live (check it out!) it was an amazing experience, Virtual animators have a series of other lectures coming up soon with animator Andrew Deja called 'Broad and Subtle Animation and Approach to both' Thought I would put the shout out as I will be attending and hope to see some of you there!
Here inspired, I played with some lighting!
Whilst hunting for all the parts of my original comic I came across these. The top line of spacemen drawings are my original initial sketches form 2011! Underneath are my recent development sketches he has come along way.
If you are wondering about the girl and the duck in the corner I had totally forgot that my original idea for the comic had nothing to do with the spaceman. The rubber duckie was originally meant to be a rock singers good luck charm which she lost on the night of her biggest ever concert, she was going to sacrifice her fame for her friend, the story didn't resonate with me then and it still doesn't today it feels very shallow and stereotypical, even by the end of the thumbnail page layouts of the comic she had turned into the spaceman.
Some quick images of Spaceman and Duck playing in the cosmos.
The turn around is my first real visualisation of my updated spaceman, his initial design was more of a shape rather than a person. The second set are a collection of character sketches, he seems to have grown legs in these images which I think is for the best.
