Couple of concept paintings here. Both are done more or less on a single layer, excepting some glow effects and sketch lines. I tried not to spend too much time on either, but they took longer than I would have liked. Rendering is something I need to practice more.
First I’ll show the Scarecrow, my favorite between the two images here:
I used a website called conceptstart.net for the idea. Scarecrow is a villain from the Batman DC comics, but the design isn’t that much different from a normal scarecrow, so it’s not necessarily fan-art.
Up next is a landscape that I randomly started painting. It’s more of a sketch than anything else. I’ve been having to do landscape backgrounds for a game recently, so that was probably the inspiration, to see what I could do outside of a paid situation. Personally, I don’t really like the result:
I should have focused more on the composition from the beginning. Unfortunately I just started painting a bunch of mountains and had to start from there. I’ll probably try something like this again to see if I can get a better result.
One more note: I added a new url to this site. So now there is the original jumpingmonkeyart.com, but also joshmillustration.com as well.
Thanks for reading,
