More animal assignment

Even though I'm constantly trying to stretch myself stylistically with drawings, I hardly ever wander outside my norm when putting down color. Here's a partially-successful attempt to do something a tiny bit different.

  1. I really like the contrast of scale between the shell and the crab. The blue-green gradient is nice too.

  2. Fun. Feels like a cool relief sculpture. Or like fridge magnets.

  3. "Partially successful?" What? The only thing I don't like about it is that I can't do anything like it. You're a talented man, Sam.

  8. Beautifull Sam! Crabs are fun to draw aren't they?! :)

    Did you paint the little dots on him by hand?

  9. Thanks for the kind comments.
    Sebastien: Used a paper texture I had at various sizes and using the square chalk. I then painted little shadows under each of the larger ones.

    Hey Sam!

    Saw this one in class. LOVED it. How did you make it look like layers of paper?

  13. Love this! Really has a dimensional feel to it. Those subtle texture areas, like the bumps on the crab, are pure eye candy!
