I'm playing with doing "Connla and the Fairy Maiden" as a vis-dev story for my portfolio. These are some VERY sketchy playing around, plus I wanted to make a snazzy design sheet after I saw all of the concept art from "Man of Steel" yesterday at Siggraph :)
I'm going to be working on this one for the next couple of days, here's the starting line drawing I did yesterday afternoon....took about 90 minutes to do the pencils and inks.
This morning I created flat colours for everything so I can use them for selections as I paint. These colours are not really meant to be accurate or realistic, although I did think about value relationships as I was doing it.
The next steps will be to lay in basic lighting information, I should get to that later today or tomorrow.
