I currently work at a game studio called Wahoo Studios. It's a beauty of a studio, small enough to be friendly, big enough to be stable.

Brent Fox, our Art Director, has challenged us, his faithful artists, to a new piece of art each month. I missed the Christmas card design, despite having a few ideas. January's art challenge was to do a study of light, seeing how varied light sources interact differently with a given surface.

He gave us a few character design sketches from our resident concept artist, Shawn Boyles. (We could do one of our own, but I wanted to see what I could do with one of the designs.) So, I took this sketch from Shawn:

And did this to it:

And this, to show what a different color of light would do. The colors of the character stay the same, it's just the light that changes.

I'll try to do this to one of my own projects here when I can carve out the time.

I was wondering on ypp and came here in curiosity.
Your work looks awesome ^^
Do you do the sketch on paper and scan it into computer to color?
Or you just sketch on computer directly?

In this case, as I think I mentioned above, the sketch isn't mine, but is from a coworker. He drew it with colored pencils, then scanned it in, and I painted it.

For my own work, I usually draw in ballpoint pen, then scan it and paint. Sometimes I do a very rough sketch and then "draw" over it in Photoshop, then paint. I don't do many pieces completely in Photoshop. I like the tactile sense of working on paper, at least when I'm fiddling around with sketches. Drawing with a ballpoint pen also allows me to get some nice variability in my lines. I'm also a sucker for the "rough" feel of the sketches; it allows me to get a better sense of what I'm doing right or wrong.

The computer helps me when it's painting time, since I don't have real paints, and Photoshop and Painter are more flexible when it comes to workflow. (The Undo command alone is worth its weight in gold.)

Welcome to the site, Lamour! If you use the same name over on YPP, I quite like your comics. If you're someone else, well... welcome, and check out the Lamour comics over on YPP. wink.gif
