Lately I’ve been unconsciously, then consciously, using line to describe only contour and shadow contour while using wash to describe only value. It’s a simplification of reality that I seem to find compelling these days. In this case the black watercolor wash has created some interesting textures floating around on the paper.
I’m a storyboard artist and motion picture production illustrator living and working in the Los Angeles / Hollywood area, specializing in traditional hand-drawn storyboards for live-action and animated feature films as well as After Effects and CG animatics for pre-visualization and post production visual effects (VFX). I also draw and sketch a lot and upload it to the Sketchblog here and social media – just for fun!
