I'm working on an illustration for school, and here's what I've got so far. I plan on using this as a back (lol) cover for a comic I'm putting together.
After doing some thumbnail sketches in photoshop, I settled on this one. It had a creepy and somewhat depressing feel to it that I thought was appropriate for the main character of the comic. Plus I've been obsessed with drawing trees lately.
Then I did a pencil drawing after putting some reference together. I still hate the way I draw pants and shoes, always the same.
Finally (today) I started on a value study with simple warm-light/cool-shadow. This is the work in process. I don't like the background trees I've painted on the left side, so I'll probably mess with them. The dude's face is also very sloppy right now. I haven't developed a style when it comes to drawing characters so I'm undecided on how I actually want the alcoholic dude to turn out.
