Off to the Illustration Master Class
For those who haven't heard about the week long intensive course. All the info is here http://www.illustrationmasterclass.com
I get on a plane early tomorrow morning, and I am very excited about it. One of the main goals of the workshop is to complete a finished illustration under the guidance of the instructors. We were given a list of 6 assignments to choose from, ranging from sample magic cards to a paranormal romance book cover. After carefully reading all the options it took me about 0.5 seconds to choose Joan of Arc. It fits in too perfectly with what I like to paint.
Above is my rather obnoxiously detailed sketch. I have to get it through a round of critiques by the industries top dogs before I can paint it, so we will see what the final image actually ends up looking like. I will, of course, be posting the final when I get back... stay tuned.
