SEPTEMBER-DECEMBER TERM, WEEK 6
Continuing with the compositions with narative thread, I though we could take at look at this panel we discussed (as part of a full page of comic book art), and change the format to portrait.
I extended the panel area in photoshop and roughly sketched more background, with the addition of the character perched in the tree.
I do no want the creature in the tree to be instantly noticable , so I applied darker tones to the top half of the image, so that the eye is immediatedly drawn to th girl.
I added some gentle highlights to the creature , so that it is not totally lost with the backgound and is noticable only after observing the girl.
Cross hatching would be a good technique to use here or line and wash.
Some artists who have great hatching technique...
