As we got further along with the production I was able to take some of the artwork I had completed and then create new key art for the animators. This conceptual work blended the illustration with photo based backgrounds which were bumped to high contrast black and white to give us the graphic feel we wanted. On top of all that I've added my grey texture layers in different hues. This piece represents exactly how I wanted each fram in the animation to look.
Illustration on Bristol board with crowquill, brush, and ink - also hand painted textures and digital.
