Jacob Black

I plan on doing many sketches and pieces inspired by Twilight but this one I did real quick after my homework and now I am going to bed. Took me about an hour and I actually really like it.

This is Jacob Black from the Twilight series. Mostly how I picture him looking in Book 2: New Moon. I know he is young but the book states he looks like he is in his 20's. Anyway, I will do more later.

Malingo and Mater Motley

Malingo was tough because every time I drew him he just looked like friggin Jar Jar Binks. Physically, the character was similar but I had to play with highlighting his differences.

Mater Motley is just creepy and I wanted her dress/coat to look like it could kill you on its own.

More on Tuesday!

Squiller and Boats

So here is my Squiller and Boats from Abarat. Squiller was fun but a challenge as I had to play with how he would wrao himself around Candy's face. These boats are pretty much yanked from Polly and the Pirates but I like the idea of the boats being houses and want to expand more on this later.

More Abarat

Candy and Boa.

So my first Illustration assignment this semester was Visual Development for a book that hasn't been made into a film. I chose my favorite book, Abarat by Clive Barker. I had done some sketches for it a while back but this was my chance to just improve on old designs and paint them in a new way.

As I get the time over the next few days I will scan and post them all. Here is Candy. Tomorrow expect Mischief and Shape.
