Painter’s Inspiration (1897). Jacek Malczewski (Polish, 1854-1929). Oil on canvas.
The vision of the eternal muse Polonia appears to the artist. Like a sleepwalker, Polonia presents a disquieting rather than reassuring image, with a tattered army greatcoat falling from her shoulders, a straw crown hanging from her head, and a soap bubble borne carefully before her—the symbols of degradation, betrayal and illusion.

My process for all the paisley armchair pictures. I sometimes forgot to save iterations regularly, so they’re a bit uneven (especially the blue one).

Sorted in the order they were made.

Tuesday tips — Costume Design 101.

Costume design is a very important part of character design.  It tells you a whole lot about your character; ie. age, personality, what she/he likes, time period, strength, … etc.  It supposed to enhance a character’s personality.  

Here are my process in tackling costume design.

1.  Find a good reference.  Inspiration is key!

2.  Look for a good shillouette that is recognizable and different from other characters.

3.  Pick one shillouette and find smaller shape within.  Do tons of variation and have fun.

4.  Color variation.  Use variation the same color combination for all the design.  Keep it simple!

5.  Finish up and have fun.  It will also a good idea to think of texture and material.
