First Assignment!

I've just started my concept art class last week, and I'm currently working on a background still from King Kong in Photoshop. Our project is to choose a screen capture and paint it on a separate canvas without tracing. The first one was black and white, and this one in colour. I'm actually enjoying background art a lot, and learning so much!

Character Sketching

Well, it's been a little over a week... my bad! So I put together two sketches this time! These characters are not anything specific, just random ideas from my imagination. :)

Unusual Costumes

Next week I'm starting a concept art course to brush up and learn some new skills, so I'm practicing a bit with costumes! This is a random little sketch mixing both rococo and samurai clothing together. Not very exaggerated... more whimsical but I like it!

Concept Art

Yay! Colour!

This is related to my last post as the character here belongs to the same legend from Japanese folklore. She is the famed beautiful princess in the legend. This was mostly to explore her hairstyle (which is not at all authentic, but I had fun with it!) I really want to do an illustrated series for this story...
