Today we had a one-class assignment where we had to sit on the torture devices the school likes to call stools for six hours straight, but I digress. We came into class to 50 prompts posted on the front wall and the class each had to choose one, no one could do the same assignment (they were mostly editorial work)
I chose a piece for a children’s magazine. It was story about a boy who befriends a star, but as the star stays out of the sky for too long it gets sick and the boy has to send the star back into the sky.
we were given about an hour to get thumbnail ideas before one or two were approved and we could move onto sketches
we were given a bit longer to do sketches but I’m the fast and sloppy type so I got those approved a bit faster so I could move onto the finish faster!
aanndd a work in progress before I got to the final (seen above) I work in grayscale before layering colors on top of it since it goes a LOT faster. Think of it like an oil painting.
All in all, I think it isn’t so bad for only having about 4 hours to finish a complete piece. I honestly didn’t know I could work that fast!
