The Kind of Bathroom I need to Know.

Sunday, July 31, 2011

Here is a Value Study of my Serial Killer's Bathroom. I really got intimate with this one.
Process: I started with a 59% gray background. I figured out roughly where my shadows and highlights would be and began to slowly push the gray to the whitest white and the blackest black. I just kept tidying up stray strokes as I went along. Eventually I achieved shadows and highlights that were in all the right places. I set the mood by adding an adjustment layer and bringing down the brightness. Then I went back in and made the shadows as ebony as possible and I polished the highlights until they gleamed like marble. Ha. I was concentrating so hard, that I was literally on the edge of my chair and my tongue was poking out. {Nerrrd.} I may have drooled on my wacom.

Thar she blows.

Background and Design Layout

Thursday, July 28, 2011

This quarter I am taking a Background and Design Layout Class. Our first assignment was to design a bathroom. Luckily, I had a specific serial killer in mind when the assignment was given so I already knew what I wanted to do. I sketched out this bathroom that belongs to a graphic designer that is also a coldblooded killer. Fun stuff.

Wacoming around...

I haven't been practicing as much as I should be on my tablet because paper is my first love. I figure it's like trying a new position in the boudoir, you may not be a huge fan of it the first time, but keep trying. The following drawings were done on a quiet evening. I spied the tablet sitting on my desk quietly whispering my name. So I went for it.
