So many gorgeous entries – well done everyone!!!
Here's mine... "The Quest for the Ruby Mushroom Gemstone"
A geologist by trade, but with a creative heart...
Recently decided that I wanted to learn to draw and pleasingly found my way here.
I have a little experience in web and logo design, and various other bits and bobs of graphic design, but not much creative illustration - so I'm here to learn 😀
I just wanted to add to everyone else's gratitude for these podcasts! Will, Jake, Lee and everyone else that helps bring SVS to us – you do a fantastic job so thank you sincerely!! These are another great addition to this resource and community!
This podcast really hit the nail on the head for me... I'm 35(!!!), fell in love with drawing a couple of years back, and have been feeling more than ever drawn to creative industries having until now gone down a science research route. Much like some others here I took some notes during the podcast and am working on my plan! It's amazing the feeling you get when you actually have something to aim for written down in front of you rather than just floating around in your head – the crazy mix of excitement and trepidation!
I'm currently working on a list of artists – sorting through the multitude – to pick just 5 that I hope will help me towards my goals. Once I have decided, I was thinking to post the list on the forum to get feedback whether these would be suitable as I don't want to fall into the trap of picking artists that aren't suitable for whatever reason.
Also, on my to-do list is find someone or a group more local (in the UK) to maybe meet up with once in a while and go through things in person... Anyone up for an SVS UK chapter?
As an encouragement I've been reminded of something my music teacher would tell me – if you're playing as part of a band make sure they are better musicians than you as whilst it can be somewhat terrifying it's the best way to improve!
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
@ians really like this! The character stylisation is really great. With regard to th issue of dark colours I think you increase the tonal range without losing the feeling of the dark clothing etc.
I hope you don’t mind I had a quick go at putting a multiply layer over it and with a bit of whit airbrush in a few places to bring out some detail...
