Did a third image a couple weeks ago to go with two images done a couple months back. This latest one is 12×12, in pencil. It was done to clarify some final design decisions regarding the commons room, the glass cube on the front corner and the center of interest for this piece.

I’m blocking out camera tests right now for what will likely be the fourth and final image in the series, a color piece intended to stand alone rather than supplement the prior three.

Below are some details from this last pencil image.

A little atmospheric depth was introduced to shift the focus away from the background and toward the glazed cube, while still allowing us to see the other glazed entrance (“The Portal”) beyond.

What I particularly enjoy about pencil is that a few flicks here and there are enough to establish detail, while leaving the image loose and fresh.  There’s potential for a certain amount of realism without requiring the illustrator to bog down chasing realism in every corner.
