Here is another Illustration 1 project. We had to use a myth, fable, or popular novel. I chose to do 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne and used a small excerpt from it to illustrate. There were many steps in creating this final, but above is a refined, full scale value study I did to ensure a better result for the final. To get to this point includes lots of reference, thumbnails, value studies, and color roughs before approaching the final. Hope you enjoy!

I liked how this one turned out. Took my time with it, but had fun and hopefully stands as a good piece for the level I am at, although I do look forward to improving in the next year and a half here at school.

this is a first! I started with the hand and worked right and successfully pulled off the 5minute pose!
The Academy of Art University holds a Costume Carnival every Fall and Spring semester. This one came today, the day after Halloween. Zombies, dead cowboys, sorcerers, post-apocalyptic punks, and cool looking stands which I had the fun opportunity setting up with spiderwebs, draperies, cauldrons, throne rooms, graveyards, etc. It was a lot of fun and I got in 24 drawings today!! Not all are posted- some weren't successful, but these are some of those that I found most enjoyable. Hope you enjoy it too and that you had a great Halloween weekend!
