Thanks for sharing this! I've recently been struggling with how to introduce a more 'organically painted' feel to my artwork, and your video couldn't have come at a better time.Where do you find your paper texture? The ones I saw in this video were fantastic.By the way, I guess I didn't realize you had other videos, and will be watching them as soon as I finish typing this. :)
Great video Jon, very generous of you to let us peek inside your process.
Thanks guys!Shaun - Cheers! I find it's as useful to me as for anyone else, I think. I've blown away a lot of my own myths about how I work watching the playback from a recording. It's a very useful process.Nasan - I scan my own paper textures from real paintings in my folio from my abstract painting days, and sometimes I make new ones. It's by far the best way to have original textures to your own specifications. It sounds crazy in this day and age of just downloading them from free sites, but you can build your composition into your texture for added win.Have fun watching the vids.
Yup, ta once again Jon. The One Ring looks like a brilliant project, great artwork. ;)
Thanks for sharing your process!
Indeed, thank you for showing us your process. I find the videos just as intriguing as your book, Fantasy art for beginners.You have a way of working that I find very fascinating.
Brilliant goblin design Jon. You have really given it a feeling of being something old and evil. I've always been a big fan of Bakshi's film too. Man, those orcs were scary!
I'd just like to reflect the comment above in thanking you for the generosity of sharing a peek into your creative process. I'd completely agree with the sheer terror of the rotoscope effect in the animated LotR. Seeing that as a kid was terrifying and also very formative!Thanks again.
