I drew several thumbnails and liked this one best. A colored fireball shoots through the sky as two boys sit in a treehouse, one looking through a telescope at that fireball, another looking at a bombshell that is walking by.
I'm trying to make 'images that tell stories' at the moment, and I am finding that it helps if several things are happening in the image.
This image is the firs of eight for another set of drawings to illustrate a logline, one Chris Keaton was kind enough to let me work with.
An image with the perspective grid and construction lines. I then place this under a sheet of paper on a lightbox as a guide for my drawing.
A quick digital tonal composition tryout. I found it better to move the woman to the right a bit. The image felt out of balance otherwise if I looked at it mirrored.
Penciled and inked, and first attempt at coloring it. Blue gives it a nightly feel but I am hoping I can improve the coloring still. This one is a bit dull. But coloring clearly eludes me still...
