i have largely been working on the bestiary drawings but i miss other media. so, i’m going to throw in the odd experiment here and there for no good reason other than to provide some variety.
i have good days and bad days staring at this. i chose to self impose a basic colour combination and only paint in gradients. i’m going to try some other so called basic combinations as well. i’m going to guess they’ll be ugly / uglier.
the portraits and such that i’ve been doing in my sketchbooks seem to have gotten a nice response but i doubt i’d ever be asked to do something like that for the editorial illustration jobs that i think i’d like to get. and so i’m going to embark on a bunch of experiments to figure out how best to go about fully illustrating pieces in a way that i’m happy with.
