For a while I’ve been scribbling down ideas for this bird project. This weekend I began to do some more research into the location and character design. Here are some of my sketchbook pages! These were all sketched using Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens by Kuretake. I like how they give a good variation in line. They’re quite a recent purchase but I already prefer them to the Zig Art & Graphic Twin pens I used before, which have a foam tip instead of a brush.
I’ve been doing some more figure drawing from artists.pixelovely.com and thought these two stood out. I like the way this model uses her hair and the cloth she’s wearing.
I thought it was time for an update of my portfolio and showreel!
Here’s a peek: click on the image to view the full portfolio.
