“the Road” Screencap Study

Another study from another beautiful film. There were a bunch of parts from “The Road” that I wanted to try to reproduce, but I really liked the mood and the lighting of this one. It was a bit tricky trying to capture the complexity and density of all the set dressing, so I tried simplifying some areas. Once again, the composition and the colors are off. I could have spent some more time tweaking it, but I wanted to get some sleep Smile with tongue out

“Sunshine” Screencap Study

I’m going to start doing some screencap studies from now on. I think it’s an excellent way to brush up on just about every skillset an illustrator needs. For me, I’m trying to improve or expand my color palette and mood. I recorded my process for this one (it was a very clumsy process, to be honest), but I ended up spending a bit more time with it afterwards.

Here’s the recording with some Daft Punk playing in the background:

And here’s my sketch:

Obviously, there’s quite a few differences. There’s some minor issues with the composition. Chris Evans head is smaller in my sketch, and I’m sure there’s all sorts of color issues, too. Regardless, I’m fairly happy with how this one came out. But there’s definitely a lot of room for improvement.
