There is a contest back home in Iceland for the cover of the phonebook, with a quite a bit of a cash prize, so I gave it a shot. The theme we had to work from was "Iceland in a positive light" So I did this sort of playful, animation-style illustration with a hint of adventure.

Some close up details...

They'll announce the winner at the end of december... Wish me luck!

Digital Sketches

Here are a few sketches, messing around in photoshop.

This one, below, is an oil painting from my clothed figure painting class.

My demo

So my friend Gerald, the president for the Concept Design Club here at the Academy, and I thought it would be fun if I did a digital painting demo showing how I paint in photoshop. It was a great success actually, around 50 people showed up :)

I started with this sketch

After 2 1/2 hours, not completely done, but ran out of time so I rushed a few things. If I had a few more hours I would finish the background and refine the sloppy stuff, etc.

I thought I'd throw in this version, before texture and color adjustments..
