Brilliant and beautiful.
Gray Mouser at the Bazaar of the Bizarre.
One of my favourite scenes from Fritz Leiber’s Swords and Deviltry. I wanted to take my time with an image, and the intriguing, claustrophobic bazaar seemed like the ideal challenge.
This time around, I made sure to save some process images.
I started with simple two inch thumbnails until I found a composition I liked. Then I pencilled up the image at 11x17. Once the pencils were scanned, I did a “lighting sketch” to figure out some of the volumes and light sources. From there I did a clean line drawing (my favourite stage). Finally, I just spent some time moving around the image, cleaning up the values and adding little details.
Q:MAY YOUR BIRTHDAY BE OF THE HAPPY VARIETY
Thank you! With the well wishes I’ve been getting, the day’s skyrocketing into the awesome quadrant.
Q:All the happy birthdays!
An infinite thank yous :3 !!
Q:Hey Sean, I know bees are like, a handle, but I think you do a pretty good job being a cool dude and living this life and stuff. You are cool. Your art is cool. Bees are cool. I haven't been coerced to say this, no, not at all- OH GOD SHE'S COMING BACK --- I mean, Happy Birthday!!
But wait… you are cool too! I will gratefully accept this not-coerced-in-any-way-happy-birthday wishes ;]
Q:HEY HAPPY BIRTHDAY
Thank you :D ! It is a very happy birthday indeed :3
Resurrected a sketch from a year or two ago and finally got to finishing the line art along with starting on the lighting. This is a full on illustration piece for Mrs. Bees, which I am glad to finally start finishing :3 <3 All that’s needed is to adjust the lighting on the body and furniture, add some colours and then strengthen some shadows :U
