EXAMPLE OF A PROJECT CONCEPT FROM START TO FINISH

 

CONCEPT

SKETCH

FINAL

Meet Khaleesi! I was commissioned to paint this little lady, along with her brother (Destro) for a Christmas gift.

The details discussed for this piece were as follows:

  • Art size: 11" x 14" 
  • Layout: portrait
  • Pose: Sitting posture
  • Extra: Subtle illusion of grass
  • Timeline: less than 3 months

1. We compiled a few photos in Photoshop since the original image with the body had her face looking the other way.

2. Once we had a strong image to work from, I sketched it out keeping the details we discussed in mind.

3. The final painting turned out beautifully! I had the pleasure of meeting Khaleesi in person, and let me tell you that I have yet to pet a dog with a softer coat!
