Last assignment for my fashion class. This one was given by the amazing Frank Stockton. He brought in a bag full of fortune cookies to class, and as we were all munching them down, he told us that our next assignment would be to make an illustration dealing with the fortunes we got. Mine was literally "you will be blessed with long life." Kinda cool, but kinda dry compared to some fortunes I've gotten in the past. So I sorta just went crazy with it. It's meant to be like a family portrait style image in which the concept revolves around the accumulation of family members as the generations progress. |
This one still needs a lot of work. When I have some time, I'll be changing around the composition as well as some of the stylizations of the smaller figures, trying to get a good balance between the rendered and graphic areas.
it's looking really good so far! I especially love:
1. The texture in the background
2. The way the sleeping man with the beard is being cradled
Frank stockton is an illustrator who's line quality makes me weep with envy.
Frank showed us a demo in class of how he inks with nibs. really inspiring stuff.
Gorgeous piece in progress Jeremy :D You have a bright future ahead and I can't wait to shake your hand in person one of these days :D
