This is just too sad. I often joke that if something isn't on my calendar, it no longer exists. This is apparently true of this Streak. For the past weeks, I had neglected to put StreakClub on my calendar — and promptly forgot all about it! The habit of working on projects has been sustained, however, and since I haven't yet let a month go by, I'm counting this as a win.
I've begun illustrating a poem written by a co-worker. It's been a good exercise in color theory and experimentation. I'll give you only a sneak peek for now!
Okay so I guess I don't have much visual flash to show for my work this week, but I'm pulling together a loose script/book map for an old story I'm adapting into a kids media project. Got the character designs more or less nailed down.
This month, I got some solid character designs finished and completed illustrations for two different concepts. Upon reflection, I'm particularly pleased with Hansel and Gretel's visual design. I'm still developing new strategies for working digitally.
I wish I could have gotten started on this painting earlier in the week, but so it goes!
So far so good, I already see where I'm going to need some corrections. I don't know how dark I want to go with the foreground, so I'm thinking I'll go ahead with what I have for now and maybe glaze it over with some deep purple tone at the end.
No kidding, I just got called in to work so I'll have to cut this short.
I've been invited to participate in a fundraiser auction for a local gallery. Without giving too much away, here's a picture of some of the development. This is about 20% of the tracing paper I've used so far (by the time I realized I needed a photo, I'd thrown much of it away). Good ideas, good flow, I like where this is going. Color palettes next week, but I'm not gonna overthink it — don't have much time this month so I gotta get moving on the finished piece pretty quick.
I can already tell this is gonna be one of those projects that I jump out of bed at 5:30 to get at!
