Skrejgib anatomy

Having finally hit a direction I'm happy with, I expanded the bust into full body studies of Skrejgib anatomy. Before I did the bodies, I tried a quick color test, concluding that I need to do more of those, and tried out the "fool the Captain into doing our bidding" expression.
I also did some concept art for Scrappy over the past week, experimenting with terraforming as per our new background story.

Skrejgib bluesky

I started tackling the main antagonists in Captain Comic, the foxlike Skrejgib. Tried out a few different techniques to come up with ideas, at first trying to design them clothed. These felt too much like sticking fox heads on human bodies, so I tried to focus on their bodies, but got a similar result. Switching technique to a shaky line drawing type deal, focusing on the bust, yielded much more interesting results, which I will expand to the whole body. I gleaned some nuggets from all of these studies.
Less than 2 weeks to go, finish as much as possible and get it printed for an update to the portfolio, take out things I've done in school.

Monument Valley

Pushed the concept I thought fit best to the point I felt I was just noodling with the details of the rocks, which had little effect on the overall impact. Also felt I had lost clarity in the direction of lighting. Next one I do will be better, right? ;)
I think I have less than 10 hours total on it. I don't see how I could put as many hours as I do with traditional media, but I know some people do. I think I'll go back to the Blastola Cola Blaster next. Finish as much as possible before I fly off to Toronto and later Germany. I've been approved as CA for GDC Europe. It's going to be great. :D
