Call Of Duty/Nightmare Before Christmas


Here are some thumbnail sketches that were done on black canson paper. Each sketch was approx. 2 inches in length. Go gouache and white pencil!!!!!!






This was another class project based on the Call of Duty franchise.




I had lots of fun exploring these projects, still more to come. Thanks for stopping by.

Ooo the angle on that bottom one is really cool! Did you take any reference of a building from that angle or did you just make it up with perspective? either way nicely done

Just wanted to say (cause in my sleep-deprived state after arch 2 I forgot to) that it has been a pleasure being in class with you. I hope that we get to take classes / work together again in the future.

You are an inspiration.

All the best,

I hope you don't mind me trying out that white on black paper method for environment value sketching as well...! It's such a great idea.
