Sad to consider that Chrono Trigger is my favorite game of all time and I have almost no art from it... Time to change that.
Just as the title says... Ignore Sting. Still trying to get it right. I've got maybe two more nights of work till I'll be done.
I'm doing a series of every version of the Dr. Started with the 10th. Next is the 11th.
Plus a quick Disney illustration for a friend.
I've been very lucky this week to pick up two amazing art books; Color and Light: A Guide for the Realist Painter, and Imaginitive Realism: How to Paint What Doesn't Exist. Both by James Gurney, the creator of Dinotopia, they are collections of just about anything you could want to know about art. They cover different kinds of lighting, compostion, making models, reference and so much more. I wish that would have found these sooner. And they relate them back to science, explaining why the light would shift to this color or the shadow at a certain location would stretch. An absolute must for anyone in the art world.
I picked them up because I'd been working on a piece that involved dappeled light and could not find any good resources on how to reproduce it on a moving object. (This work might not see the light of day, ever)
Everything has been edited and the synopsis is written. I just have to go over it one more time and then I'll send it off to Tor. I've got mixed emotions right now. I'm proud of what I've done. But I'm also scared as hell and I'm not sure if it's good enough. I'd like it to be accepted right off the bat, but it won't kill me to get rejection letters either.
And happy news concerning my best Friend Kat. She's been accepted to Ehwa, a university in Korea. She'll be going over to learn the language and enjoy the culture. I'm so proud of her for getting this done!
Finally, more doodles on my Ipad. I worked with the Brushes App last night. Just played around with shapes, trying to make interesting compostitions and landscapes.
