Xmas Postcards

This year I received so much help from various people so I wanted to thank them for accepting me, flawed and all. I finally saw it on first hand basis the power of kindness and acceptance that change someone close to me who in turn changed me to hopefully a better person.

So, I did some xmas postcards to give to precious people in my life.
Hopefully it would make them smile.

I am planning to make them to be available to download in gumroad for free soon. Hoping that anyone could use them and give them to someone precious to them and hopefully make this end of year a better one, even if its just a little better.

Value Studies 6

Finally completed these sets of value practice. Been doing this on and off.
You might remember the first one from a while ago :)

I feel kinda rusty since I had not been touching it for a while but that was a good practice!

George Innes's "The Lackawanna Valley"

1 hour lunch study of George Innes's "The Lackawanna Valley"

This is one of my favorite landscape painting from George Innes.
Really enjoyed painting it but I struggled a bit since the values are so subtle that it was kinda hard to read and mimic the value shift.

In this scene, I really love how he leads the audience eyes around the MG and FG area. The use of basic shapes and long lines and the value groupings to help focus the eyes are superb!

I would love to see it in real life!

Inktober 2017 - Golem Crafts

Series of ink drawings that I did for inktober 2017.

This time around I was inspired by my childhood of making gunpla, playing robo-pit in ps1 and dozens of shounen manga. Had tonnes of fun exploring the world and storytelling. The character kinda evolved and changed in scale and design as I did the different pages as I didnt really designed them in the beginning.. oops :p Hope you have fun in following their adventure!

Fleshing out the idea

Initial Composition Thumbs.
I was still was not sure on the forest look initially so I just did quick value splash to build up ideas.

Kinda went overboard in trying out the variations.

I went back to the silhouette and did more research

Trying out poses and quick lines

A personal project that I did as part of mentorship from Tyler Edlin!
