This was a project for Gnomon School of Visual Effects. The class was introduction to digital painting. The assignment, to use an existing sketch from your sketchbook, incorporate it into a digital painting, then remove the linear component to have the painting stand on it's own. Then incorporate different contrasting elements into the piece.
Start of a personal sketch on Moleskine for fun....
Added some color with prismacolor and gold acrylic..
Assignment for Intro to digital Painting Class at Gnomon. Take an existing personal sketch and incorporate it into a digital painting. Here I incorporated all the linework into the painting.
Then the assignment was to remove said linework and make it a digital painting only. I did just that but also created an enviornment to make it a more believable space for her to be placed in.
And finally I incorporated graphic, linear and painted elements to great a harmony which buffers the contrast.
