Shark Folk Sketch by JBellio
Shark Folk Sketch
Traveling salesmen. They settle disputes with their mouths. Literally. Whoever gets eaten was clearly in the wrong.

So the beast riding guy was painted by a friend over the environment I posted a few days ago.  Then, I added the Carrot folk to keep the narrative going. Passing a picture back and forth always seems to bring out the wacky in ya.  ;D

I was playing with some new brushes, and saw a purdy picture on pinterest. Environment practice ensued.

Trying to improve those pesky environment skills.  :D 

I'm torn. If I dive right in to painting, then getting value to play nicely with color seems easier but the design suffers.  If I make a sketch first, the design works better, but the colors seem muddy and flat.

Any tips from proper artists out there? What workflow works best for you?

Update! Hmmm... the more linework I make, the more I want to scrap this whole thing and just paint it like I normally would.  Darn you exploration!
Finally! (although this journal might be a little late) Our game has shipped, and now I can't stop playing it!  Getting my hands on the physicals toys is much more fun than playing with them in debug.  Love all their crazy combinations.  Magna Ranger and Free Buckler seem to be my favorites so far.  (until Spy Shift is available, that combination is a beast!) 

You can preview all the combinations (yes ALL 256 of them) on the Skylanders website

So proud to be a part of this team, and I hope everyone has as much fun playing it, as we did making it. :D

Oh yeah, I'll be able to share some art, once it gets cleared from legal. :D
