thumbnail practice

It's been my dream to illustrate amazing and story driven illustrations. Just like the works of Pascal Campion, Pricilla Wong, Stevie Ray, Ryan Andrews, Maike Plenzke and a lot more artist I admire, I want to capture the amazing illustration. And to be able to do that, I learned I need to practice my values, composition, mood and of course digipainting.

On the past few weeks, thanks to a professor I am also working with named sir Patrick and tips from my co-workers like Sheila Lee, Kara Leonardia and a lot more (And yes, I have my outmost praise and thanks to them! :) Learned a tons from them!) I've learned few things to achieve my dream. :P hehe

In my first attempt, this is what've done:

Need to work on the blending thing and more :P hehe BTW, I used a beautiful photo reference for this, just to clarify! :P hehe not mine! :)

Then upon practicing some more, Sir Patrick told me to make thumbnails. Instead of working on the canvas in a large scale, I have to zoom it out and work on it. Use a huge brush and just get the essentials first then details later. :)

So here are some of thumbnailing and again, I used references on it. Usually I get shots from movies which have amazing cinematography. :)

Will keep practicing! :)
