The Melt (thumbs)

I forgot to post these along with the final. Just some variations/ideation sketches for finding the composition and color scheme. I mostly went for 7, but obviously some things changed along the way. I widened the image out and I tried to make the image more colorful (mostly because of the fact that the palette in most of the thumbnails were very similar to my "Dear Friends" piece).

Probably going to try to take Aftermath to finish sometime over the weekend or next week. :)

Farewell + Creek

"Creek" started off as a really promising speedpainting, but unfortunately I gave myself too much time to work on it and I ended up having to do my best to salvage what I could. I'm not THAT pleased with it. So, I learned my lesson- I really should limit myself and I should save copies.


"Farewell" is based on my lesson learned. I spent about 1.5 hours on this one and I'm far more satisfied with the results. Much more simpler and tells a bit of a story.

The Melt

I haven't spent this much time on one image for quite a while. Granted, there were some things I had to take care of like settling in to Cali and meeting up with some people, but it still felt like an eternity since I've finished an image. A big reason why this one took so long was that I spent a couple of days working on a different version and ended up scrapping it completely. It was way too boring and I think I knew it from the get go, but didn't fess up to it until later.

Anyways, I'm back on the train, and hoping to get some more work done this week. I really want to dive in and try new things. Looking forward to sharing some of those things with you all. :]

The book I made a few weeks back arrived a while ago. I was a bit busy unpacking, so I couldn't really find the time to take some pics of it till now. A lot of the dark images came out WAY too dark and some of the small text is TOO small. Definitely going to have to make some changes before I print my next set. It was still really cool being able to see a collection of my work in print form!

Another creature. Sorry for the unoriginal name :p


And here's an early sketch. Obviously, some parts have changed since.

I like his name because it sounds like "SURPRISE!" :p


Big trip back to the Bay Area tomorrow. Seeya, Gainesville/Florida!

This one kind of reminds me of some of my older work from a few years back.
