Here’s another image that took on life after sitting dormant in my sketchbook. I’ve always like creating images that use dramatic perspective. It’s a great way to convey power and a monumental feel.
Every illustration starts with a crude sketch. Forget about making it perfect when getting the vision down on paper. It’s the essence that I want to capture. If this were a commissioned job, then then next sketches would be very tight and refined. But as this is a personal project, I’ll skip the refinement and scan the crude sketch into Adobe Illustrator. It will be edited and refined there. No back and forth with an art director for this one.
Here are the vanishing points used for this illustration. All elements are based on these two points. There could have been a third one at the top, but no need on this illustration. A separate layer is created for the vanishing point guides.
