Before the workshop, I did some legwork since I was worried about drawing and painting with people watching me. First, I played around with some body roughs. I knew I wanted to do some type of creature, since the theme for the workshop was "study from life" and we were in a natural history museum.
|Here's the first round of sketches that I did in my sketchbook.|
|Another round in the computer exploring the proportions a bit more. I'm trying|
for something long, lean and muscular.
|Getting somewhere... I wanted to explore something with his ears. |
They have very loose skin, so when he's alerted or startled he can
expand them to take in more sound.
|The images completed at the workshop.|
|Detail view. I was inspired by Terryl Whitlatch's bold use of color for|
her creature designs.
|The ever important reference sheet.|
Again, thanks to everyone who stopped by during the workshop!
