Done! So this assignment was a background design, and after going through the linework, value sketches, and color keys, I tweaked and edited where I thought the composition, color, and lighting could be pushed. The two main influences for me during this process were Disney's "Hunchback of Notre Dame" Art of book, and Hans Bacher. Also gonna start referencing Tadahiro Uesugi's style of background.
Finally, more character development for this same project. The villain character will eventually be posted up as well. Right now I'm just exploring different styles for the characters, and trying to push them into better more appealing/interesting designs. (For the hero, I referenced lotsa Marlon Brando photos and an Al Hirschfeld caricature of Brando)
