Took a break from digital painting today to work on some creature silhouettes! Creature design is by far my favorite aspect of any game or animation I experience—I can’t wait to get my critter designs into a game. :) Expect to see a few of these guys worked up soon!
(If anyone wants to see a particular silhouette worked up let me know!)
Most of my recent artsy activity has been focused over here of late—I will have a scientific-minded illustration ready for you soon, but in the meantime if you are interested in creature design, please check out my concept blog! :)
These fellas, as you may recall from an earlier post of mine, are Stephens Island Wrens, the only known flightless passerine—and unfortunately extinct. Pretty happy with progress on this one too, so far—which is good, because these lovelies inspired me to do this whole thing in the first place. :) More Gouache! The empty space will eventually have type in it.
Gouache painting of a spectacled cormorant eating a young pacific cod—one of the 12 extinct birds I hope to paint for for my directed projects class.
I also hope to be awesome at gouache by the end of this. I am winging it a little, with some amazing advice from mangycoyote.tumblr.com. :)
More to come!
