I feel ashamed as to my lack of posting this summer.. my bad excuse is I have been busy working full time at a retail store , was in thailand for a month and went to Glastonbury festival. I'm now entering my last year of university ( noooo , will miss this lifestyle) and will hopefully be posting more of my progress.
Enter the Yeti! I have decided to enter a lot more competition this year so to start of I looked into 'The missing link research project' organise by Pictoplasma production.
Character design is not really my cup of tea ,as in I have not yet enter into this area much as an illustrator. So I decided to see what I can come up with as this competition seems rather fun and spontaneous! I have tried many drawings that just end up looking like a weird ape so just decided to go with the unknown by paining first with just brush and water then drop some ink onto the area and moved the paper about, then with a scanner and some colour adjustment on photoshop.. Tadah!.. I have a shape that looks like it could be any large man beast thing. Then of course i draw some eyes,nose, hand and feet n that was the creation of my version of a yeti,big foot or abominal snowman.. how ever you want to call it. I must say I really like my creation to be real just so that he could live in my garden :)
