I wanted to convey a sense of fun and movement. This is the first quick sketch in which I outline my characters and the composition.
I was happy enough with this as a starting point and the rest of the detail and the overall style would come later.
Here is the final piece.
I changed the palette a little during the final stage as I wanted to add a little bit of muted colour.
This was a project pitch piece so hopefully it will do the job and I can explore these characters in more detail at a later date.
This mornings 'warm up' sketch was started two hours ago!
The whole idea is to quickly sketch out any old nonsense just to get used to the movement and all that stuff........
Suddenly realised this took longer than I expected....
I'm behind with the work I should have been doing .......
But, thoroughly enjoyed putting these conkers I picked up walking the pup this morning to some use. At least the pressures off the lad to pretend he's still young enough to play conkers.
