I finally started painting up the Mikey sketch this weekend. I spent a good while playing around with some colour comps and assembling reference (Oatley training starting to finally kick in!), before starting with the sorting out the background. Looking back on it now, I've no idea how I managed to warp the flat brick texture I had to fit around a receding curved cylindrical shape (and match up the tiled brick texture!). It'll serve as a place holder until I paint over, but I think it works pretty well; I'm also quite enjoying the spiral the shadows between lanterns create. More to follow soon!
Also here's a sketch from one evening last week, everyone's favourite subject matter: ZOMBIES!
