A 30 Minute Character Design based on the words, Undead Prom Queen.
Done in 27 minutes with Manga Studios EX4 and Photoshop CS 5.
My working on my painting of the Merman from the movie Cabin in the woods, continues.
I wanted to keep the cabin stuff very graphic to act as almost a part of a logo, but still wanted it to look cool, so I blured the trees some and added a glowing light behind it to pop it and underlit the lights from the windows. I think it really works well.
So I guess next step is to add color!
A wip of my painting of the Merman from the movie Cabin in the Woods.
A character design challenge. The goal was to do a character design in 30 minutes based on a few keywords. The key words I used was Clumsy Bodyguard.
I have been doing so much ‘serious’ art I wanted to just do something goofy and fun. Audra and I were talking about silly things and the idea of the number of butts on tumblr came up so I drew out this little cartoon.
I am working on a Cabin in the Woods painting collection and this will be my first one, the Merman! Now granted he was only on screen for a few minutes but he was a brutal character!
This is just a wip. I will be cleaning this up a lot, this is just a sort of blueprint for my image. I wanted to bring in some of the story elements from the movie, so I will be adding the actual cabin, I am not sure if I will keep it graphic like I have it or if I will do a more realistic treatment for it. And in the background will be the betting board the office used to bet which monster would be used.
In image one I did a quick sketch in photoshop and when I had it where I wanted it to be I quickly grey-scaled it to plan out the contrast, I made the background very light and foreground dark so I could really use a lot of values so I could make make the Merman the most interesting element.
In the next set of images I play with the colors, the ‘center’ rows are me trying to decide what kind of background color I wanted. I chose to use a desaturated yellowish color because I didn’t want it to be too overwhelming, and I wanted the whiteboard they wrote the names on to still ‘feel’ white.
Then I played around with different treatments and lightings on the painting in the last rows. I am still unsure which one I will use. Any suggestions?
Thanks and enjoy!
Study I did of Cabin in the woods monster, Merman. This is for a series I will be doing. #art#horror #artist
