Here is the first return image on the little project I started. This was submitted by my friend Christopher. The words he chose: Door, Labyrinthine, and Aim.
As I was sketching this is the image that came to mind. It's likely this was influenced slightly by the movie Labyrinth starring David Bowie, though Mr. Bowie had little do with my inspiration. One of the creative artists for Henson's Labyrinth was Brian Froud. I would definetly say that his artwork has been influence on my style and taste towards illustrative art.
This second image is the first sketch I did of the piece. I liked the idea, but did not like the lack of depth in the image. So I attempt to a little more dimension to the piece in the final drawing above.
Thank you Christopher for the wonder ful suggestions!
I'm looking forward to more suggestions. I had a great time doing this one, and I do feel it will work to help me stay motivated to create.
