So I got a paint over for this picture, and it really showed me how lame the colors were. Here are some detail shots showing before I saw the paint over and after (minus the red in the background in the first one. I did that after then saved over the original.)

I’ve pretty much been repainting this picture, but it’s so worth it. It’s kind of fun figuring out how much color I can get away with, but for me it requires a lot of trial and error. Mostly error. 

I’m still need to work on the color in those feather-like scales and probably in the jaw a bit. So yeah, it’s still a WIP.

I still need to fix the values and tighten it up a bit.

Work in progress shot of the forest area around Tinman’s house. I wanted the forest to seem really wet so he really would need to keep his oil can with him at all times.

Experimenting with some paint and marbles.The paint manages to stick, but it’s pretty easy to scratch off, so I have to paint carefully. I used a pin and scratched a pattern into the paint on a few. On some I painted over the scratched pattern in a different color while others I left uncovered.

Full spheres have this crazy glow effect with a camera flash, but they look less vibrant than the hemispheres irl. The left sphere has the pupil painted on the closer surface. It looks sharper, but lacks the following illusion that painting the pupil on the back surface has. Unfortunately the full sphere warps and magnifies the back surface and causes the pupil to distort and disappear as the pupil appears to move to the edge. I won’t be using them for this project, but I’ll keep them in mind if I need pupil-less eyes.

Starting of with a thumbnail of a current project for my digital illustration class. I’m pretty excited about it. We are supposed to design an environment and so I went and designed the environment of a particularly important scene for a story I’ve been working out for a while now. I’ve always known it takes place in a cave, but on a whim I decided to make it carnivorous cave. Interesting background elements ensued.
