My Work in Progress

A sketchblog where I post a few of my scribbles from a variety of works-in-progress, usually from my rather random personal creativity outside of the daily grind. I occasionally, but not always, post the final artwork.


Tree Studies

Did some tree "life studies" and a few quick sketches based on photos; and then scanned the drawings and put them on various layers in Photoshop...and eventually came up with this layout. This was one of the preliminary comps I did for the illustration I'm currently working on for "Winter's Daughter".

I love tree trunks. Especially ones that look 'Rackham-esque' - like the tortured trees and roots out of Dartmoor...

Oh yes -- me too! Although, the tree photos I referenced were mostly from pictures I took when I visited London a few years ago, especially Regent's Park. :)
