Today I will show the legendary sword Gram. Gram is the greatest creation of Weyland. It is his pride in joy. When Weyland gets imprisoned by the Evil King Nidud, his sword is taken away by the king, and the king claims it as his own.
In my variation of the story, Nidud, places his own soul in the sword, causing it to become twisted and evil. Weyland will eventually have to face the decision of either destroying his greatest possession, or allow the evil king to remain immortal and grow in power!
I have been working on this piece for a while now, and am still trying to figure out how I want to compose my elements. I guess the next problem is figuring out what all of my elements are, I need to throw a candle or torch in there somewhere.
I am liking how the characters are looking though, they are coming along sweetly.
This one was "Jigglymander", I was going to doctor this image up and make it look more legit, but the idea at the time felt... well, stupid. The funny thing is, this sketch captured more of what i wanted to do in the "Likibasaur" picture.
Today I did a lot of plein air painting. I worked in watercolor. What I am trying to do is get composition, value, and color design out of this (all of which are a bit unsuccessful in each of them, oh well)
Here are some of the better concept pieces I did for the student film. Most of the props were done in collaboration with other students. So many in fact, it would be hard for me to actually name them all (I am all about taking it easy). And, as you can see, I mostly worked on the couch.
The environment itself was fun to do. Having the layout planned, as well as having the props already designed made it a relatively easy task compared to pulling the whole piece out of thin air.
