Just to keep this updated, here are two work in progress shots of some things I'm gonna try to have done before next week... on top of my various comic assignments(I'll upload those as well). The first is something I haven't done since I was in high school, creating clean line art that will serve as the base for the drawing. I'm making it all clean lines because I want it to be a sort of advertisement for my webcomic I'll be hosting starting this summer. Right now I'm drawing the two main characters, and after I finish the two I will add more characters, a sort of "mural" if you will. I want to have each member of the cast in this, and being very OCD with linework will probably make this one a lot tougher than the second image.
The second drawing is much looser and going to be rendered like a painting, though I'm still stepping outside of my comfort zone a bit by using line to define some parts. Like the first image, it's going to be zoomed out a lot as I add in more things, like environment, background creatures, foreground elements, et cetera. I'm going to go for a Raymond Swanland-inspired composition.
