Just playing around using a tutorial on YT.
A couple of creative things I did last month.
Sketched a girl with the idea that she fell upon an island of pig-nosed humans. They took her and converted her nose to one of theirs because it benefited her in that she would be able to smell danger and poison and such much easier and quicker then a tiny human nose. I definitely need more practice because it’s not exactly the way I like it.
The composite above was done for a contest in which I didn’t win but I enjoyed making it because I realized how much I’ve missed working on my computer and with the Wacom tablet and pen. Took me about 5 hours to complete, which included looking for stock photos. The face and arms are actually me. I had taken a set of photos of myself a couple months ahead with plans to use them for concept. I’m really glad I was able to use one for this.
An old frozen rusty ship matte painting. I followed the Youtube tutorial here.
For the skyline, I used this photo I took of the Miami skyline during a family cruise to the Bahamas a couple years ago.
Other photos used from a free photo stock site:
I began by making a sketch.
Then, I layered the photos.
Adjusted the colors, masked textures onto the ship, painted the snow all the way to the skyline, and painted snow on the buildings as well as on the ship.
