Final piece. I've got 5 more days to tweak things here and there but I think I'm done. I just want to move onto something new.
Just some studies from Lord of the Rings. An exercise in composition and understanding of the importance of foreground, middle ground, and background elements. What works and what doesn't? The cool thing about these is they're just shapes, so really they can be anything, which turns them into pretty good composition references.
If you want to do the exercise check out CtrlPaint.com's Film Studies section.
I'm making an attempt to illustrate a medieval book I'm reading. These will come in handy. Sorry I haven't updated with anything original.
Concept I'm working on for the week. It's sort of a bug/plant hybrid creature. Ladybug head, flower garbs, plant tentacles... sort of threw a curveball with the snake body. I might change it. Still need to come up with a way with how it "gardens". I figured it would just go around it's planet (Mars more than likely) spreading spores and seeds creating new plant life.
