CHARCOAL




These are some charcoal sketches I did last night. Charcoal is pretty different from drawing on a tablet. There's texture, resistance and vibration with conte and charcoal and pencil on paper, These drawings here are pretty retro but I think something is coming to life.

ORIGINAL FABLES




Initially I was working with black and white drawings like these. I still kind of like these as they are before I started mucking about with them. The obvious problem with all the white is that the image glares at you. At first I framed the images with a heavy vignette. Then I went to a painted canvas textured red vignette. Now I am working on the approach I mentioned below.

FABLES




Over the last couple of weeks I have been working on this stuff. Taking artwork from an old film idea, adding more detail and changing the style of render. Initially, for the film I was making, it was just going to be black and white line. I tried a number of approaches and settled on this. What I consider to be fable like panoramics.
