Finally finished another painting, was about time, right? I've been starting new paintings every now and then (working on my thesis atm, so no much time to paint) but sadly most of them ended up in my folder of random sketches or just loose paintings. Somehow something looks off to me and that is quickly solved by starting a new sketch. So to break an increasing new and bad habit, I went back to this sketch.
I learned so much going back to this painting. When I first tackled the lighting I had it all wrong I had an overexposed background and the main characters all lighted up too, as if they were not affected by it. Now after doing some research I went back and placed the shadows and rim light where is supposed to. I see this as an opportunity to take several of my unfinished paintings to another level.
First time doing a sketch for #sketch_daillies. The little Mermaid was my favorite movie growing up so drawing Ursula was really fun. I tried to keep her original design as much as possible. I think I got her looking the same by the exception of her hands which are so weird. Mental note to start sketching more hands. Hope everyone is participating in this daily sketches and the ones who aren't, come and enjoy the fun.
I finally got to watch FROZEN a few days ago. There were so many aspects I loved about it. Just to name a few; character design, visual developement, animation, sound design, OST and the relationship between Ana and Elsa. My only complaint was the storyline in the third act (I'll probably get booed by this) but other than that the movie was great fun! Here's a fanart of my favorite scene.
Giselda Sastrawinata. If you dont follow her blog I'll advise you to do it now. So many helpful tips and her artwork is beyond amazing. Here's my layout so far and one of my first pages.
