A Real Live Commission

A very lovely lady commissioned me to paint a picture of her grandparents.  It was nice to have a semi-break from illustration and just do a straight forward painting as it gave me the chance to practice the practical skills that I've been neglecting a little this term.  It is painted with acrylic on canvas paper with coloured pencil and Neocolour crayons.

Palmer Hargreaves Final Image

Here is my final design for Palmer Hargreaves.  I feel like this is a much stronger composition and is more suited to the company and their clients and hopefully they'll agree!

Palmer Hargreaves WIP

Work in progress for Palmer Hargreaves.  This has been another useful experimentation piece as well as helping to boost my confidence in what was a dramatic and emotional week. I now need to make a choice between the two compositions - they both have their strengths but I'm leaning towards the second one as it is more dynamic and less of a straightforward scene.

Palmer Hargreaves

Rough idea for the Palmer Hargreaves competition.  I'm trying to fit my illustration in with the Renaissance theme of some of the decor whilst also including the accuracy and skill that underpins their advertising work.  I'm unsure whether to keep the brush key-lines or make it more of a clean vector piece but I'm sure a few experiments will make that decision for me.
