Also I think I'm going to be getting on the commission work wagon pretty soon and try to make a living out of it. Moving to CA would be so much more comfortable if I could move and bring a job with me (commission work that is). From there I'd start looking for an in house job... maybe. It's all up in the air, subject to revision.
|I guess I had a bad dream or something because I woke up one morning and found a rough sketch of this|
in my notebook from the night before. I mocked the rest of the concept out digitally in about 45min. For
the record I eat way too much spaghetti.
I think I'm going to start putting valuable lessons I learned at the end of all these posts. This weeks was pretty funny. So I'm in the middle of painting out this stupid pumpkin monster thing. The composition was great, values were looking grood, but something was off. I leaned back in my seat staring at the image before looking to Godzilla (a toy on my shelf) for some sort of inspiration. It was then that it hit me, something I heard Anthony Jones briefly mention at Gnomon. This monster I was designing pretty much sucked, it would never hold up next to the likes of my Godzilla. In fact I laughed at the thought of even putting this pumpkin thing on my shelf. The design was lame and unimaginative. So from now on I'll be designing things with the idea in mind that if they won't look good on my shelf then I won't draw them.
