Summer Thesis - final

I finalized my sketches and I was ready to illustrate the girl, so to celebrate my "yay I finished enough for today," I went to go watch Bridesmaids with my sister.
After spending about 2 hours of quality time with her, I realized the beauty of illustrating "types of figures" is when an artist captures the diversity in people and style. So I decided to draw 4 figures instead, and started the final.

Sketches were never my thing. It's very rare that I stick to my sketches and get the result that I want. In fact, I prefer working directly on the final page and recreating many finals to get the perfect one. It's time consuming, but I'd say I draw pretty fast, so it all works out best for me this way.

Ladies and gentlemen, I'm still not done, but this is what I have so far:

I couldn't fit the whole image onto the scanner, so there's that weird gradient/shadow, but whatever. It's not the final. If you have any suggestions for the color for the suit, please feel free to comment!

  1. Awesome update. The drawings of the figures are coming out pretty sweet so far. Since your not finished, I won't comment too much on it. But at that stage I'd probably push the contrast a bit, and depending on the fashion of the each different locations, I'd play with the Pattern with the clothing, and use Saturated colors for them. Try to make sure you don't focus too much on the figure like rendering out the skin tones or whatever lol or else it will take the attention away from the Clothes. That's about it.
