I have been busy working on more fairy tales. I especially love my attempt at Jack and the Beanstalk. I think it is because I had the time to work on the environment for this one.
It’s a very simple environment and I am keen to practice and develop my ideas with more depth and textures – they just add so much more to the story. I have collected a huge amount of inspiration for this idea. My ImagineFX subscription is probably the best thing I did this year! So, as usual, no new year resolutions except to learn something. Last year I wanted to practice my figures and character design. This year I want to continue with that but take it a step further and give them a place within their story.
Some of my other illustrations (up to K, so far) are here – Creatures.
