Concept to final
I put some of my photos of my process online, and I was pretty surprised at the feedback I received. More people wanted to see the 'hows' along with the final piece. So I thought I'd just put this as an example. I spend most time researching first... although it comes from imagination, I prefer to put a fair bit of thought into plants and animals etc. in my scenes... especially for much of the puzzle type works I've been putting together this month and last.
I then explore the character - often times there isn't one, but my push this month continuing will be to add a character into each big scene. This is as I move towards doing my portfolio. My final pass is with the actual line-work working from foreground to background. I'm not aiming for reality in my pieces, more a playful 'authenticity' which I really hope comes through the perspective choices (i.e. the flattening of some of the perspectives as well).
Then I scan the pieces at A3... do a little Photoshop jiggery pokery stitching the pieces together and there you have it!
