More Concept Art!


More concept Art for my Fantasy Story.

This is what happens when there is an 8.5 x 11 piece of paper and a mechanical pencil next to me at work. Because the images were drawn smaller to fit on one sheet of paper it made them allot easier to color. I will probably do more of my Concept art this way in the future.

The more I draw these characters the more they feel real to me, and it motivates me to continue moving forward with the project.

  1. I'm an inspiring artist and I have a few different ideas for comics. I have a question what do you do to make your art appear as it does? It can't be just pencil work or ink? What do you use computer wise? I'm going back to school in January what would you advise I go for to do what you are doing?

  2. All of my current work is Pencil and all of the coloring is with Photoshop. Working as a graphic designer has taught me allot of techniques that have carried over into my Illustration work. I do allot of Multiple Layering with different patterns which gives my art that textured look. My advice would be familiarize yourself with Photoshop and Illustrator and just start messing around and try new things...allot of the stuff i do today happened through me just being experimental. And as far as school goes, I have never had any formal training or education in the arts. I can tell you that Art-Center and Art-Institute have great illustration programs. I was accepted to Art-Center but didn't have the funds to attend. Art school is expensive so start saving!:)
