Ely Poster/Ely number III sketch

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!
