A Break from the Norm

This is a study piece completed in the same vein as the great concept artist Ian McQue (he followed me on Instagram by the way – mad, I know!), and done in preparation for some paid work I’ve got on. The ink drawings on the right are quick 10 minute sketches that I meshed together to create the digital piece on the left. I worked very loosely with this one, using only seven or so layers in Photoshop, which is a break from the norm because I usually use about 80. I’m just dipping my toe into this style of work because it’s nice to try something a little different every now and then as it inspires growth. Anyway, hope you like it, and maybe i’ll do some more of these. Cheers!

P.s. I’ve just this second noticed that the houses remind me of David Winter Cottages. For those of you not familiar with DWC, they are small clay(?) sculptures of cottages and villages scenes that were very popular with geriatric men who wanted to pretend they were Lemuel Gulliver from Gulliver’s Travels.
