|(Some of my reference. Odd, I've used the kitty drawing in the upper left a number of times and just now noticed my little Repo peering out on the left side.)|
Once I had the chance to digest the material I came up with a quick little rough of what I wanted to do with the illustration . Using the myriad of Egypt reference and cat photos I have around, I worked out the basic composition combining it with Greg's photo.
|(In my sketchbooks after I do a drawing in class, I'm usually adding to it to create an interesting composition on the page. The doodle on the left was the rough for a drawing used in last week's blog.)|
While I don't produce finished digital paintings, I do use Photoshop where ever I can both for shortcuts and safety. In this case, before laying on the finished color I tried to work as much out with layers to see what combinations worked best.
Next time I run through this process with another recent painting where I tried adjusting the order of the steps...adding on all my darks and light on top of the color. See you then.
