Citizen 29

Solace was found…

in the strangest, most unheard of corners and edges of the planet. Where endangered creatures and outcasts prospered, there she would be; sharing stories and imparting philosophies amongst a population eagerly seeking what she had already found.

I really want to get better at writing, so that means I’ll probably have to start reading more. I’ll start by re-reading one of my favorite books, “Hatchet,” by Gary Paulsen. It’s a short read, but one of the only fiction books I own :/ In the end, I would love to write a huge story, involving all of my demons, aliens, and creatures. I really have no clue how to compose a story though, so buckle up for the journey.

He was exiled…

… to Planet 16. Considering himself king in this strangely empty stretch of humid land, he adopted 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!

Still studying…

I’m experimenting with different mediums on this one. Watercolor was used for the circle background and colored pencils for the eyes. Neither of them were to my liking, so this drawing will probably only work as a value study. Moving on…

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.
