Cowboys, and Westerns

Seems to be the theme of this month- oh and werewolves!

Hey guys! Bea here! Hope you’re ready to see some arts!

Since much of my time is spent doing commission work, I’ve learned that no matter how busy I am, it’s important to take some time to simply draw whatever random thing that comes to mind that I want to do.

Well, that moment came last night when I went out and saw Hateful Eight with Zygona.  I’ve always been a fan of Quintin Tarantino’s work, since Kill Bill–  and became interested in titles like Pulp Fiction too. I mean, what Tarantino is able to do with his movies, visually, has always charged and inspired me in creative ways. I

n his most recent movie, the Hateful Eight, my favorite character, played by Samuel L Jackson is Major Warren.  I loved his design, and his character is so well written that I couldn’t resist drawing him…Only, as a woman o.o.

There wasn’t any reason to draw him as a woman, other than the fact that I loved his outfit and wish I could cosplay as him every day >_<. I mean his jacket is, omgaah! Love it!

This sketch isn’t done though– I certainly want to fully render it, but I’ll save that for a time when I have more leisure. What’s great though about doing this sketch is that it also helped me to set up for my next set of commissions that are in progress.

 

Gothic Dust

A few months ago, I was contacted by a nice guy who I’ll refer to as Ray, who commissioned me to do 4 character illustrations, plus an ad illustration, and the name of his story is Gothic Dust.

From what I can say about it, it has a western/cowboy style with some rather interesting characters I hope you all get to learn more about as I go through designing each one.

So far, we are in phase 1- thumbnail silhouettes

Poses are important, when designing non-static characters because it tells you a bit more about them through their body language,  and thumbnail silhouettes help me get a feel for that, and the energy each character has, prior to adding all the details.

Much like the last set of character designs I did, I’ll be saving each phase to show you the steps, so that when I’m done I can animate them.  But unlike my previous character designs, because these will all be complete renderings, there will be more steps to record.

I have a few more concepts I have to start sketches for, so stay tuned!

In the meantime, I hope you liked this post, and as always, Enjoy!
