Clergy 16

He was exiled…

… to Planet 16. Considering himself king in this strangely empty stretch of humid land, he adoptedĀ a crown.

Figured I’d start giving these creatures some sort of a backstory. Keeping it to a few sentences for now though.

This piece here was done with mainly graphite and white charcoal. Prismacolor colored pencils were used for the eyes, galaxy gem, and background elements. Winsor & Newton gouache was used for the finishing touches on the highlights and stars in the galaxy gem. All done on a 10×13 piece of toned paper. Cheers!

This is the direction the new series is taking. I want to go all out on this one though, so still a lot of work to do.. This series will be the death of me…

Sky Brood

Here is the last of these nocturnal creatures I’ll be doing. The eyes have been so much fun to work on. I used a combination of 6 colors in this one. The challenge is finding colors that complement each other well. Here I went from a blue to purple, to pink, and finally to a cream color. I haven’t really been focusing so much on the creature design aspect so much, so it ended up just looking like a plain ol’ barn owl. And now, looking at it, I noticed I lost some of the puffiness of the lil guy from the block-in to the final. Oh well. Anyway, before I even started this one, I had already imagined the next series I will be doing. Stay tuned for those. Feel free to ask me questions about my process.

Desert Son

This one transformed pretty heavily. From the beginning, I knew I wanted this creature to belong to the desert so I had to take a break after the line drawing to figure it out. I kinda blacked out after that haha. I got one more creature for this series that I been trying to get out of my head. We’ll see how that goes.
