The Swarm

Jury is still out on this one, don't be surprised if there's an amended version of this in the near future once I work out what's bugging me about it

Tried to maintain the integrity of the previous thumbnail designs that were quite successful.

Ra - Concept Mix and Match

Before I took one of these guys further I felt I needed to exhaust the possibilities a little more. Felt there was more gold in there if I dug a little further.

The Swarm - Docked

I tend to just use my sketchbook just for me, for ideas on composition or story or design.  This helps as I'm loathed to forget stuff and this holds me until I get time in front of a computer.  Also sometimes the idea losses lustre so it never makes it that far so it's a good way to weed out the weak ideas.

Ra - Brotherhood of Ra graphic concepts

A bit more on the graphic side of things but I wanted to concentrate on design.  My next stage will be to develop one more then translate it to a more photoreal style.  Strong design will translate (hopefully)

Ra - Style experiment

Thought I'd try another approach to some Ra work.  I used the freeform lasso and draw the shapes then painted into the shapes.  Once I had what I wanted I did another drawing pass and draw over the top.  Typing that doesnt really sounds like a new approach a lot people have one approach for painting and another for sketchbook drawings I wanted to try and combine the two somehow.
