Forest-Pics-02 by Fyreant Forest-Pics-02 by Fyreant
Happy Tuesday to you, my sweet and good Deviant Art Peeps! I offer unto you a selection of thumbnail taken from my WotC days, specifically the period spent designing the Great Forest of Argoth. These sketches were musings as much as fodder for complete works. Rough stuff is what you need to determine if your ideas are good. Gunning straight for a more polished piece doesn't make much sense to me, but then again, I'm a dino who loves the era when he came of age; the first Star Wars films, the Dark Crystal, Arzach. My heroes drew before they went to paint, most of the time. It's a new era, with new heroes. Every age has something to teach the previous one.

I am down on myself often because I don't do the thumbnail/value sketch/final painting progression very well. Because of this my work is very line-centric.. But then my major background is B&W comics; is it really a drawback?

Your work is inspiring and lessonful as always, dear Ant. :3 Thank you so much for sharing.

Great! I agree with you, there's no point in trying to get a finished painting of a good concept if you're not sure or haven't visualized it yet! Also, making these small and quick drawings really help you figure out the nature of what you want to do and also gives you more ideas everytime, which makes the final result even richer. Cheers!
