For pathology illustration class, we were asked to come up with a couple of different colour palettes for our midterm sketches in preparation for our final illustrations. I actually really enjoy colour studies, but this was during a period of tight deadlines and stress. Feeling pressed for time and rather uninspired, I turned to some of my favourite artists for inspiration (aka raided DeviantArt, a site I no longer frequent, but remains chock full of eye-candy!)
My first attempt was based on OeffeO's beautiful piece Dream State
My second study resulted from a sad attempt to colourize my grayscale midterm sketch...
My last study was based on loish's whimsical illustration, glow
I'm not sure which colour palette I'm going to go with for my final. I'm leaning towards either the first or third option!
