Just thought I'd give you a bit of an insight into how I work, using a piece of character design I've been working on.
Particularly as I've been atrociously bad at posting so I thought I better do something a bit more in-depth. I do have a fairly good excuse, because I've just moved to the other side of London, and moving makes everything take twice as long as normal.
Anyway, the original pencil sketch, the line work, and the colour and shadow layers as they built up. I haven't got a proper name for her yet, but I've been going with 'Atti', just coz she's got a bit of a 'tude.
In other news, I'm going to see a publisher's tomorrow for a portfolio viewing) and I've been discussing the possibility of doing a children's book with a published writer. I did some audition pieces for a graphic novelisation he wanted to put together (which I'll put up soon), and while he and his publisher's decided to go for a more photorealist look for that project, he has some ideas he wants to go over.
So an all-over hoorah.
Comments on news, my site and work always welcome.
