A little different today [Apr. 26th, 2008|05:06 pm]
You may have already seen these on my site recently, but I thought I'd post them here anyway.  These were small watercolors done for Fashion illustration.  The assignment was to redesign the three face cards (King, Queen, and Jack) however you wanted.  I chose to have them as bums.  Really tried to push the attitude and props of each individual character.  These were super fun to do.

The King

The Queen

The Jack

You manage to make watercolor so creamy looking, i'm blown away. Great characters, i'm afraid i'm going to look like the queen in a couple of months.

These have an almost sculptural aspect to them... very nicely done. I wish the Jack had some sort of specific personality though... apart from the king and queen. I love their eyes, especially on the queen!

thanks man :)
with the jack, I was basically going for a sort of fledgling bum. someone who's completely new to that world, possibly a failed business man, and is still clutching on to the last remnants of his old life, whereas the king character is completely content with where he is.

I agree with all that was said and then some. Do you thicken up your water colors with some other medium? I really do like how solid the imagery is.

Thanks :)
I just mix them with water. if you use the tubes, you can get pretty dark deep colors with less water.

the most exciting part for me is actually going back into the pale, washy colors, and bringing out the darks in the creases, nostrils, in between the fingers, etc. it really gives it another dimension. it's also the funnest part.
