I love the surreal element you brought into your illustration! That hand reminds me of something from a nightmare. I almost like the first one at the top more, but I really enjoy the drama you brought in with the last one. good work, but maybe add in a glowing flower or firefly or something to add logic to the glow on the woman.
Your starting sketch is wonderful and it's also an interesting take on the idea. I think you could re-examine your color palette. It seems a bit to dark and losses something. You could possibly try to use some of the illustrator techniques we looked at in photoshop on the woman or hand - like glows or gradients.
I like your process images. I also like how you colored you used your shading in your original drawing and colored it digitally using a small color palette. I feel that if you were to brighten the girl by giving her a glow effect of some sort.
Your coloring style is very flat and it works very well with your illustration. It's like they were made for each other. Also, I really like how illustrated more of a concept about the plague and people rather than showing the physical effects. It really makes it stand out from the rest of the class and has a mood that is completely it's own! Great job! My only suggestion would be to play with color a little more and just see where it takes you.
I like your overall concept, its a different spin on 'plague'.I am really glad that the final image is much darker and foreboding than the first few images. I think the colors work really well with it-- even though they're dark, I can still see what is going on. I think that if there were some clouds/ more texture in the sky, it would really tie the whole thing together.
This is a really interesting concept. I keep thinking the hand of God here. Your textures are crazy great. I feel like, knowing your work, that you focus on main elements and tend to steer clear of supporting information (in terms of your concept and page design) throw some stars in the sky or clouds or a bat, and maybe some light vegetation on the ground. Where the art is rendered, it's rendered really well. Where it was left, it appears almost too simple. Great colors, great concept and nice take on the assignment.
I really like the bottom image a lot. There are a lot of great things going on with your color choices. It's a very dark color palette and I think it definitely says night-time. I think it could be cool for you to bring some of the colors in the wall into the girl and the hand (As well as the tree) just to unify the piece a little more with color. It would be really cool to see some reflective light hitting her as well so that she doesn't seem so flat with color? I love the dark-darks, so maybe there is a little bit of a glow from the moon that you could add somewhere? Or maybe play with some unexpected color change in the leaves or bark?The drawing underneath is really nice as well - I love the texture of it and the detail of all of the leaves!
