This class was amazing! Loved the prompts and could see my playfulness come out more and more throughout each exercise.
5 Actions -
I worked harder at determining which characteristic added personality to each of these on the second pass.
People in Shapes -
I chose my faves and colored them in Procreate - (this Saturn guy, coined "Holst's Encore") HAS to show up in one of my future picture books)!
Cut Out Shapes -
This was shockingly more fun than I thought! I think I'm going to try some painted cut-outs like Sean Qualls/ Eric Carle/ Christian Robinson soon... (good tip - finding a distinguishing characteristic (hair/shoes) and continuing to use it.
Portrait of my daughter.
(Sorry, Tom...I was too eager to hand paint this one in gouache and colored pencil that it may be a bit messier than your clean vectorized aesthetic. I could work on reducing color and detail, but I'm already starting to recognize more easily what is necessary to adding personality and style to my characters.
Thanks for such a great class! I look forward to taking more from you and enjoyed seeing you speak at the Skillshare NYC office!
