Some Things Don't Change by T-EE Some Things Don't Change by T-EE
This is my entry for a worldwide annual competition my uni runs, this year around the theme 'tree time tales'
....strange title for a theme...yes.
according to our tutors every theme now has to end with 'tales'...

anyway the already pushed back deadline is tomorrow and typically i left it till the day before to do something...anything.

my idea behind this was...
I wanted to create two corresponding images around the idea that trees continue to grow in the way they always have while inventions and technology continuously grow and change in different ways around them.

The image is meant to represent the nature of 'some things don't change' by Illustrating the simple joy of riding through a forest with man's best friend. By depicting this existing a 100 years apart we can see the concept of the activity remains enjoyed the same while inventions have moved onto some thing different.

so yeah.
I don't expect to win :|
but i got to draw trees :dummy:

--------------
INK! :slow:
done on two bits of A4
there were originally 3 panels but the third (which had a hover bike!!1!) got scrapped due to me not liking it.

want to see some progress shots?! on my sketchblog!? dial tone?! [link]

So many things that I love here: the autumn colors, the bike designs, the dogs, the boy holding on to his hat. Yes, riding your bike with your dog is still one of life's great pleasures! :heart:

Though they're my favorite form of transportation, I kind of dread it every time someone commissions me to draw a bike. Anyways, this pictures fantastic!

Beautiful as ever, I've been meaning to ask you though, do you have a skin tone coloured ink or do you mix it yourself?

haha no i just have basic colours of ink and swirl it all about. I enjoy not painting traditional colours of things sometimes, so it works okay :)

I've been using a weird mix of blue, red and sienna miller to make them and it hasn't worked out overly well :)

you could try darkish weak orange and a bit of dark purple....i like that colour but i'm not entirely sure it's realistic :laughing: green with that might work...

In art, killing your darlings is usually the opposite of you should do. It is when you love something, you should paint it and it is when you love the result, you have created something good.
