X Marks the Spot... - student project

Hi all

Here's my Pinterest board of inspiration for this class. I hope others can find some little gems in it.


Here's a few initial sketches i've worked on today. I only got the tablet yesterday, so I'm still getting used to the pressure sensitivity.


Heres 3 of the steps to get to a near-finished character. I'm going to be away for a week so I won't be working on it in that time :( but I will be at the beach :)

I'm not entirly happy with the shading - it needs more colour in it. It's also too blocky and not textured enough. I hope to dive back in and have a go at fixing it soon.

Well I've finally gotten around to finishing my project. I went a little bit silly on the dry brush effect, but overall I'm pretty happy with the end result.

This class has been great and I just want to thank Matt for sharing his considerable skills with everyone. He is a great teacher and I will be taking any further classes he teaches without hesitation.

Cheers :)
