Rough Draft for the large format submission for the Henderson Library.
Trying for a movie poster type image.
Hi Donna . . .
Thanks again, Cindy,
I'll incorporate your observations with my next sketch. The long shadow idea is also a great one. Maybe a sunset on the plain that would cast such a shadow. Not sure if oil pastels or watercolor will be my media. 24x36 is large for me to work, but sounds like a fun challenge.
New and tighter image for Dr. Jekell and Mr. Hyde. I think the Hyena is a bit more menacing. Still not sure about the text.
A bit different composition that gives equal weight to each character I think. Also added more detail and the reason Mr. Hyena is angry.
One color study.
Wow! I see you've really been focusing on that light source and it shows. I like both the color and black and white renditions. The color is just enough that we know it's dusk. You pulled that off well. I also like the composition . . . and see you've got your crow in there. I think you did an awesome job with this and I can see improvement with each rendering. Waiting for good news from your showing at the event Lady!!!
Thank you Cindy,
I appreciate your critiques and suggestions. It's those second pair of eyes that are so valuable. Still a lot of work yet to do, but I have the map now.
I'm going to start enlarging today and I watercolor/color pencil will be the medium. I'll post progress for this phase too.
Any more conversation on a PB critique group? Do we have enough Northern Nevada Illustrators for a group?
Well, its in the can. Also, in the box and in the UPS truck on its way down south. I had to photgraph this instead of scanning and the colors are not correct. The actual colors are a bit brighter. But anyway.....fun image to create. I learned alot and thank you, Cindy for your suggestions and critiques.
WOW Donna!!!! If this is a photo, I wonder what a scan would have done! Really nice work. You put sooo much into this. I can almost feel the hyena's fur. You really captured the expression . . . and I see you have played with your light source a lot more. The contrast between the Hyena and Jackal, personality wise is clear. Water is difficult to do at times though. The rendering I'm doing now . . . with the waves and reflections of water was a challenge . . . especially with such a controlled medium as pencil. I had to let it do it's own thing and caught the light between the texture of the paper.
The palatte you used is great . . . cool tones with the warmth on the fur bringing your characters forward which made the other elements play their own role without being distracting.
Really Nice work Donna.
