Colorized sketching 02: Line art

Lately I’ve been exploring the power of embracing more pronounced line art within my work. Included are three characters from the same world initially created as stand alone pieces. This is a unique, fun way of working for me as it is a quick turnaround and it can be utilized in both sketch and final formats, depending on how far you decide to take it; love the versatility.

Colorized sketching

I think I like the idea of having “Isaac’s signature art style” But in reality being confined to one single style is limiting, and quite frankly can get boring. Colorized, more messy sketching is something I like, and can do relatively quickly. It’s fun, has a lot of room for development. Do I see it as the style in which I broadcast the entirety of my work? No, not yet.. There are a couple guys I follow who get really far with this, and I can see myself doing that, almost more cartoony, but more important to me is asking myself what I want to be known for further down the line, when I’m more developed. Maybe they all come to a single sort of fruition.

Examining color, text, and futuristic stuff all at the same time's always struck a chord with me. Guess that's how you learn about yourself. Think it has to do with my sub-fascination with branding as a part of concept design. Makes things more believable, tells more of a story, and makes the audience ask "what world is that from?" Here are a couple caseless electric machinepistol sketches I made last night, might develop them more if I feel like it. #DEVCORRA
