Some Heads I did on a sheet for fun. I like some of them, but I'm a little disappointed. I see my weakness popping up here, which was what I was trying to fight when I did these: not enough variety. I look at other designers stuff and its wildly varied in size and shape while I fall into Disney blandness too easily. Just complaining here, don't try and talk me out of it! Its rainy right now, sorry. ...
WAHOO! I finished the manuscript (120 pages) for my next book: "Character Mentor"! I have tons of drawings I still need to do for it, but to celebrate, here is a bunch of character heads floating! This is for a section about eye direction, so maybe it will make more sense in contex.
This is another image that wasn't used for a children's book I illustrated at work. The script changed drastically, so that was the reasoning. I still like the Photoshop coloring style a bit. It was quick, simple and stylized- all my favorites. Anyways...that's that.
So I have a huge list of all sorts of buildings that needs to be produced for the game, and I start by doing some research and then I sketch a few versions of that building, and I try to make each one appealing on its own, or sometimes I sketch a slightly different version, moving things around a bit to make it better.
Then I present all my sketches to my handsome art director Mike who picks one and maybe suggests some changes. After that I paint them in photoshop which you've seen before. And that's how it's done (Then I have to do some other stuff for the programmers).
