For example, I'm having a lot of fun making seperate backgrounds like this and adding characters a little later. I wondered if I could perhaps add a little door into somewhere which would link the image to the next. Say this image:
|Has a tiny door in it somewhere? Perhaps it links or conects to the next image.|
|A door to go into the above image.|
The door that leads to the next area kinda sounds a little bit like a videogame. Step through a door and go to the next area. Sounds silly and very geeky but I like this idea a lot.
I'm still not satisfied with colouring in my images, it either takes too long to do, or simply colouring over it makes it looks a bit of a mess. I tried thinking back to some of the inspirations from my childhood again:
I'm sure everyone has made one of those when they were younger in school. Daniel Skillcorn let me borrow this tablecloth drawing- so I could copy down some of the weird shapes the class made and that I may try making something of my own:
Instead of drawing everything out first, I coloured it in and then added in my obsessive detail. Sort of like those napkin drawings, I'm hoping this can also lead somewhere.
Like a lot my drawings, I still just start with the outline and think about what I want this object to look like and what colour I want it to be. I did still have time to make some of my typical black and white drawings today however:
An Inspiring Cartoon:
A Friend of mine posted this link on his facebook account. After watching it I couldn't help but want to draw an image inside some sort of lamp or snowglobe.
|My Lamp/Snow Globe Idea. Just Felt like drawing this after watching the above cartoon. I do kinda wonder where some of my inspiration comes from sometimes.|
|And also made a bunch of other quick doodles while watching it.|
