Recently I watched 3 wonderful videos of Justin Hillgrove (Imps and Monsters) designing and making a small painting in real time. Here’s a link to the first part: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iiL7z5dZP1E
They were wonderfully instructive and helped me to realise that I do, in fact, already know how to paint made-up scenes, I just need to get out of my own way.
So today I sketched and then painted my own little scene. I really like how it turned out! All I need now is a name for the little guy. Suggestions welcome!
