I have a commission for a set of creation-themed illustrations. Since I have a rough idea what the layout and style will be, I have started doing some more detailed study sketches of animals. After all, what creation is complete without animals?
(Sorry for the poor image quality, the lighting was not that great when I took the photos)
Happy belated New Year everyone! I don’t know if new year’s resolutions are a thing for you, but if you haven’t broken your resolution yet, congratulations! :)
I don’t do resolutions, but I do set goals. And one of those goals is to complete new art work that serves a good purpose. Despite my health issues and other things, this is something I am working towards.
In this sense, things are off to a good start, because I got an illustration comission from one of my professors! He needs 6 illustrations of the bible’s creation story for his lectures. A classic theme, a good cause, so I gladly took the job.
day 4: sun, moon and stars
day 5: birds and fish
day 6: land creatures
These are the rough sketches for three of the days. The other three days are basically the same pictures without the pink objects/animals, hence the pink-grey color in the sketch. (This is due to the parallel literary structure of the biblical text, not because I’m trying to be lazy). The actual illustrations will be done as combo of digital painting and collage. Hopefully, they will be done by April!
