MORE CREATURE SKETCHES!




Sorry for the lack of posts. It's been a crazy couple of months for me. I did these a couple months back but never posted them here. I love doing these kinds of creature sketches. I have fun playing with brushes, textures, shapes, and values. I just start painting without knowing exactly what I'll be coming up with and let the brushstrokes help me find the forms. I have so much fun doing these also because in my day job I'm always designing with a specific goal in mind, a certain direction. But with these I can design as I go. It's fun to come up with the design, function, and story of the creature as I go. Is it more majestic or evil, predatorial or passive, slow or fast, etc. It's designing on the fly. Of course if it were to be used for some actual story I'd go into a lot more detail and research into the design and nuances of the actual character. All of this is the fun in concept designing. More to come!
