Scott Lynch is a genius, this book is amazing so far (I'm about halfway through, you know... when the pirates show up.) I definitely want to do some fanart about this book. In the meantime, here's a little warmup today before doing my commissions.
Been working on this Howard Pyle master study for a few days in my spare time, I think I'm gonna leave it for a while. There's some unfinished areas, but I'm happy with it. I LOVE the colors in Howard Pyle paintings, it's hard to find those happy accidents when you're working digitally, it's like we have too much control. This is why I've always liked the palette feature in corel painter, I kind of wish photoshop had something like it, it allows for random color mixing, and discovery of new colors.
