This week's Illustration Friday word is "resolutions." This coming year my class will be graduating from The University of the Arts, and we will be on our own. This is a poster of our Senior Thesis called the "Ely". I'm sure everyone has different plans after graduation, as well as different resolutions. I depicted us as baby turtles crawling to the ocean; some get there before others.
This is kind of a new way of coloring for me. Yuko Shimizu recently visited my school and said some things about the way I worked, so I'm trying to pull back on the rendering with photoshop gradations and concentrate on showing form through pattern and line.
It's has taken me for-freaking-ever to come up with a composition and point of view that I'm happy with, but I'm starting to realize that it's probably going to be a typical thing for my work in the future. If only I could pump out sketches that I am always happy with.....
Now to get some reference for the figure!
