Character design for Book Project
I'm working on loads of character development and concepts for a book project which I am illustrating. I can't say too much about it at this time, but will share bits and pieces when I can. This is a concept sketch of one of the characters. At this point, I'm developing and working on the look and idea of this guy . . . the final character will be a bit more gnarly.
My friend Menton has a great look which totally inspired this character. Check out Menton's work, he does awesome work for publications such as IDW and so on.
Sketch detail . . . I always love the way these quicker paintings look, especially close up.
My block in . . . establishing shape rather quickly with a bit of color and value thrown in to sculpt the idea.
