I wanted to draw some trees and explore the idea of a low contrast dark image.
All my years in print related industries screamed at me to add more overall shape contrast so this wont just turn into a brown mess of CMYK. But I think it works ok on screen...
This has more form rendering than my last set of images. I didn't have a plan for how to color this going in and had to figure it out on the fly. I couldn't find a way to make it work with just flats.
I have been snowed under with work for the last 6 months and haven't been able to draw anything of my own. Hopefully I can get back into the swing of things soon!
All photoshop. the drawing changed a lot as I went along too, as you can see from the first sketch. I try not to plan these sort of things out too much as it makes the process more alive.
