Here’s a progression of my most recent piece from sketch to digital color comp to final paint. This piece is titled:
"Adapting to Change."
6x6” acrylic on wood
This little piece revolves loosely on how i’ve always felt the need to challenge myself, or at least being presented with an opportunity that forced me to challenge myself. This piece also serves as recognition to my little character, Shrympee, that helped me take my first step into the designer toy world (a world, until now, i’ve always admired from a distance but never had the chance to play in).
Even though Shrympee marked an important time in my life, I’ve always felt that if i remained doing the same thing for too long, i’d become complacent and stop growing as an artist as well as a person. I’m still not even close to where i want to be in my personal development, but hopefully with the way things have been going, i’ll get there one day. I’m lucky enough to have been taking a lot of big steps in my life, but many of them are only the beginning.
