5. Refined. More reference for parts that I wasn't happy with, elongated for a longer vertical pan. Experimenting with colour in photoshop.

4. Colour. Inked up a version based on the previous sketch, and coloured digitally.

3. Rough sketch. Looked at photographic reference for various elements to get more depth to the piece. Developed the composition a bit further.

2. Developed thumbnail. I've been looking at forced and extreme perspectives and I tried to incorporate that into the composition. Thinking about a possible camera move around the scene too.

1. Initial thumbnail: I knew I wanted a street with a doctors surgery sign. Town in the distance. The road was going to be very hilly here.
I wanted to give an idea of the process for this piece. I'm working on backgrounds for my new film project, it starts out with rough little thumbnails that are really not very good..... then I think about the composition and elements that I want or don't want. Then I take a look at some reference photo's, etc. Gradually it develops into something quite interesting.

This is going to be a birthday card for my cousin, a massive star wars fan!

Someone at sketchtavern pointed out that I wasn't drawing any ladies! So I took steps to right that..... I've always struggled to draw girls and it's time to put the effort in so I can draw them without reference. These are almost exclusively from ref.... Unfortunately google referenced not live ref!

Just loosening up with some pose pages for the characters in my new project. Referenced some of the poses from elsewhere and just shoved my characters into the poses, finding that quite helpful.
