I'm excited to get started on making my own monster following this class. :) AS Nic suggested, I've uploaded my color palette reference photo.. it's a couple of Disneyland buttons, a frog paper weight, some craft paints and a lego character my son made. I think this'll provide a cool color range. :)
Sketches of some monster ideas:
Here's the final version of my monster. :)
11/03/16: Did more monsters from my initial sketch :)
I finally made the jump and bought an ipad pro.Sooooo much better! I could not find a stylus that would work for me. The adonit dumb stylus with the little plastic disk at the end was the best thing i could use, but it wouldn't pick up everything I tried drawing. So I bought the ipad pro 9.7 so it's portable. :)
As soon as I started drawing with it, I instantly thought "time to visit Nic's classes again!" So I drew a new monster up just to start practicing with the pencil. The pencil is a bit slick on the surface of the Otterbox's cover, but I can get used to it. The pencil works like a charm, it's so terrific to use.
