2008/11/23 - Painting the Sky Red


I have lots of more important things to do- but I couldn't help myself from drawing this. I spent a lot of time today working on character sketches in pencil and I found myself inking and coloring this. It's kind of a bit psychedelic don't you think? The background and cloud like things are all composed from photographs that I've taken. Recently I've taken an interesting in photographing fabrics and using them in my artwork as background or to create effects. I guess it gives a kind of dimension to the flatness of my artwork.

I want to reink Jirou's uniform (the character on the right hand side)- maybe I will do it soon. I think I might use this image when I get around to redesigning the site- which I should do soon. Maybe I will try for something that is more of a simple design this time.

It's kind of strange to compare both the pencils with the colored illustration all inked! I think maybe for the facial expressions the pencils convey them better- especially Oscar seems even more devious in the original. Maybe I need to add more expression in his eye and close his mouth a bit more. Anyway, you can see download a larger version of this image on deviantart.
