Here's what we're gonna do. I really enjoy the pictures from this blog: Daniel Arriaga. This guy works for Disney and he really knows his stuff.
I like all his pictures but I love the lighting to this one:
So I got to thinking: I love the contrast and the lighting to this picture; I'd like to see it done with other characters. But who... who would be a better casting choice?
And then it occurred to me... it's so obvious. Why, none other than Hokey Wolf and his lil' buddy Ding-a-ling, of course:
Right? Right??!! I mean, riiiiiiiighhhhhtttt!!!!???? Hokey and Ding-a-ling oughta be nice and comfortable around that fire cooking marshmallows.
Well, OK, at least that's what I think.
So here's the game plan:
- We draw and paint the background, including the fire.
- We draw, paint and insert the 2 characters.
- We then shade and highlight to capture the mood of a fire in the dark woods.
Stay tuned for Phase 1.
