Just Shaping

Just can't get enough. If I get a chance I'll try and introduce some more hard surfaces, flowing shapes & figures. Then it will be time to take some to the next level and introduce some colour and paint into.
And just for reference sake, each thumb is taking no longer than 20min.

Shaping Down?

Too much fun. So I managed to get another few thumbs out on Sunday in-between going on a solid bike ride n going to see the smokin' flick 'Hanna'.
Anyway here is a second set of shape based comps.

Shaping Up

Thanks to stumbling on a great workflow technique by the master concept artist Sparth I spent the last few days this week creating a custom shapes library to use for creating quick compositions.
The immediate benefits are simply finding shapes that by simply painting traditionally you may not find and the versatility of the tool in being vector based comes to the fore very quickly.
Anyhow here is my 1/2 hr lazy Saturday trial. I will be doing five comps each day this week to try and build a heap of thumbs to work up at a later point. Really enjoying this fresh approach and only having to concentrate on positive/negative.

Monkey Jam 1 - Alice in Wonderland

Well in an effort to keep everyone pushing their creativity, my works AD Dan Tonkin has championed a new in-house monthly art challenge.
The first theme was Alice in Wonderland which is a real challenge as its a fairly well worn idea. So I thought it would be good to do a paint over of an old sculpt of Tweedle Dee with some strong romantic lighting and the second was just an attempt to make something out of nothing which can be seen in the wip.
Looking forward to seeing everyone else's & I'll try and link that stuff when I can.

*Edit* added the 'Knave of Hearts' profile sketch so I had something unseen for Mondays submission.
