Dropping off a few various illustrations that I've been working on. A few wip, some inks etc.
w.i.p. image - composition is receiving tweaks before any final rendering goes down - little cliche but lots to learn from it.
I revamped one of my portfolio paintings.
The goal here was to clarify the focus of the image, up the drama, contrast and detail...I think it's a bit more interesting and tense now as the old composition was quite awkward.
w.i.p. image - I like the colors and themes that are going on, but I'm going to eventually take another stab at the composition/storytelling aspects.

I'm continuing with these simple observational sketches. The only main design decisions here are composition based; what to include/exclude and where to place them, which makes for a very relaxing but informative study. While the content is 'dull' the balancing of the composition and freedom of representation keeps it rather enjoyable.

Here's a handful of ink sketches from a drawing field trip to the Beaty Biodiversity Museum, located within the UBC campus here in Vancouver. I sketched with ink working of forms and a little texture, and used a colored pencil to apply some separation or basic value.
