Remember those two artists I talked about earlier? Thomas Thesen and Tom Whalen. Yes, them. Well, after several good looks at their works I made some colour schemes for them. Mind you, I made it for some different photos than the ones that have previously been posted here. Oh, well.
Thomas Thesen's work is shown here. For the most part I got this collection from his blog. Anyways, his work is "A Top View from the Mushroom Forest," "Second Page of Paul Quickaboonip," and "Captain Alistair Quickaboonip."
Using a colour scheme from the three above, I applied it to a bird. It's a Victoria Crowned Pigeon. And I know what you're thinking. It's a pigeon. Yea, well. it's a pigeon with a feathered mohawk. So I wasn't really sure what I was going for. So I tried to do it layers like demonstrated from the last post with the insects from Thalen. Then I moved onto attempting it with colour. The final one is to the far right. I tried to employ the colour scheme chosen from Thalen's image to the best of my ability. I'm not very good at sticking to a palette.
Next, from Tom Whalen I employed these works: "Spotify Jukebox," "Cobra 10 Cover," and "Certification Training." They're, for the most parts, illustrations he has done.
Which I adapted to create my own rough image.
I was really really having a hard time with the colour scheme here. Because all of the colours were just too bright. So I had to dim the wolf. It just would not make sense for him to be brighter than the rest of the image (minus the hands). I was also thinking that instead of having a gradation in the background, but rather morph the trees that a wolf naturally inhabits into nothingness. Because when people do hand shadows, they're on walls, rather blank walls to enhance the shadow lines.
I was not positive about how I wanted the wolf to look at, so I made many very rough sketches, as a test run.
Anyway, this is what I've been working on lately. I'll keep you posted.
Until next time.
