Getting started on some new projects lately. Next week I will be attending theIllustration Master Class in Amherst, MA. We have to pick an assignment given by the instructors and arrive to the class ready to get started on the painting. I've chosen a scene of a couple of travelers on an ice berg that have a run-in with an angry polar bear. I've posted my thumbnails for this project as well as a sketch for my other "Mother Nature" project on the collaborative blog Running With Paintbrushes.
Here's a few grumpy polar bear studies to get ready for this next painting. Check back for some process shots and updates throughout the week long class.
