This is a small section of illustration I started working on a few nights ago, its still pretty rough round the edges but it’s getting there. It’s loosely based on a random picture of an old man I found in my images collection, I referenced the picture for a rough idea of light and shadow and the rest is imagination. My aim is to create a weathered look, like the face is a huge monument formed of twisted wood, rock and other natural materials that have been blasted by the elements over time. It’s to be part of a larger landscape image, I won’t give too much away at this point, but the finished image will be posted soon(ish).
Based on the images I posted on here a month or two back, here’s my new short ‘The Walk Home’. I find its good to go on an artistic detour from time to time, this being a very different beast to most of the films I’ve created so far and it resurrects some elements of the graphic novel styles I was creating a few years back. The story itself is a kind of montage of the dark underbelly of society, told through the eyes of a vunerable boy wandering the city, who eventually makes a shocking discovery.
