Under the Sea

Hello everyone!

First, I would like to give you the link to my inspiration board: 


Second, a bit about why I'm here and what my project is about. I have a background in traditional art and have dabbled a bit in digital. I'd like to learn more about the process of preparing a digital illustration, and I'd like to do some work on a concept I've been kicking around since the Summer involving a whale. I don't have a story or anything, but he comes up frequently in my sketchbook. 

I went as far as to create a dummy story page with him:

So I think I might like to try something new with him, or maybe something completely different as the project goes along. Perhaps I want to try an altogether different style?

Looking forward to feedback and learning from all of you during this process.


Doing some digital sketching and thought about antagonists for a bit and came up with the Squid Gang. Angry fish! A little closer to the pirate theme of the class:

Update#2 Another sketch below. More geometrical.

Update #3 The Squid Gang

I opted to hand-ink the drawing and skipped the Illustrator step. I'm just more comfortable with physically inking.

The inked and scanned drawing.

Finished colors in Photoshop.
