You choo-choo-choose me?

I finished this painting recently and I'm happy with how it turned out. Doing a character concept isn't quite the undertaking that an environment concept is, you just have so much more real estate to fill! As with all things, the more you do it the easier it gets, and hopefully faster too ;)

These are the steps I took to get to my final piece. This isn't a tutorial or anything, I just happened to save a few Jpegs along my way to completion and I thought they showed nice levels of progression. It's interesting to see what shapes were there from the very start.

Sketchbook Scans

It's been some time since I last posted anything. These are Some sketch I did over the summer. I started using watercolor but I still can't control it very well, need more practice. Going out to train your eye to break things down into simple shapes is a great exercise.
