Videogames Players

Hello everyone!

Long time no writing here, but I found some time to make another entry, this time to talk about this commission here!!

It was done for a guy working on a furry documentary. I can’t wait for it to come out 😀

Anyways, for this picture I made some tiny quick ideas to choose from. While looking for dynamism and excitement from the video gaming experiences, I wanted the couple to fit entirely within the frame.

When  did B, it was hard to work with the other ones, since it instantly had what I was looking for. (the tail on B also makes a nice loop aiming towards the other guy’s face)Videogameboys-sketches1

Upon choosing B. I went ahead and designed the scenario better, figuring out planes and perspectives.

The sofa was a little off center, giving the impression of a camera going somewhere else…

At first I was thinking about a dark setting being illuminated only by the lights of the TV. Then I found out the picture was getting to closed in itself and with many walls…

The colouring phase was dressed more as a painting: big color blocks were added here and there, some smudging, some mixing, etc. The idea here is to settle down the atmosphere of the picture: how much light will be in it to build a mood.

At some point I decided to twist the perspective a little bit, making it look more natural but also more dynamic.

I spend a lot of time putting big color marks, without details, just to get the light and contrasts right. Details usually come at the very end.

Contrast through value and tone is very important; a useful tool to get the viewer’s eyes to look at where you want them to. In this case I wanted to make a nice play between their faces and the TV, thats why the fox’s paw is pointing at it.

 

And that’s all for now!

thanks for passing by!
