Fairy Layouts Colored



So, I woke up around 6am yesterday with the sudden desire to watercolor. I don't think I've touched watercolors since the second grade (I hope it doesn't show too badly), and I've absolutely never volunteered to get out of bed before 9.

Spring Workshop Sketches



These are a random assortment of 5-10 minuite workshop sketches I have done since February. For these ones I used charcol, marker, or pen.

Eagle awakened


So, this is the final result of Eagle coming to life out of the totem. I'm sure I'll keep working with this idea at a later date. It would be fun to storyboard out the whole sequence of all the five spirits morphing out.

I'm working of the logistics of how my Tlingit totem will come to life. These are some color thumbnail studies I've started out with. For now I'm going to go with the bursting out effect (bottom left) because the whole smoke thing is a bit cliche. I also want to reserve the Art Nouveau smokey-wind idea for the orca character, who will "blow" out of the totem and into a real whale in the ocean.
