In my Concept Drawing class, first day, Tin asked us to grab three crumbled pieces of paper, one out of the three cups that contained, respectively, nouns, verbs and adverbs. We are to spell a sentence out of them in that order and illustrate it. Mine was Snake Throws Mysteriously, which I thought was kind of funny considering how much I love things happening mysteriously and that word. I'm not sure when the project is due yet and whether there are going to be any more specifications, but I just went home and drew this. I feel like working at Kaman's Art warmed me up for a lot of sketching, so I kind of can't stop... Here I was trying to learn some color and make the feel mysterious but whimsical.
Two versions of this image, and I don't know which is better. The dark blue reads more as an underwater environment and connects better to the second one, but the pale skin toned one has more of an intimate feel and makes it a bit more clear that the drowning scene is in self.
