Inktober 27 – Value Study
2014-10-27 15.49.47

I’ve been redesigning the Sparrow’s costume. So in the absence of any further requests for Sparrow characters, I’m going to spend the rest of Inktober developing the new concept!

This is a value study for one of the ideas. If you’re not familiar with art terms, you might wonder “how is this a value study?” Well, in art, value refers to the lightness or darkness of the color. When designing, sometimes it’s useful to try a value study. Basically that means do a grayscale version to see how the contrast looks. Varying degrees of light and dark make a picture more interesting, and gray shades make the contrast easier to see.

In this picture, I want to lighten the chest piece and maybe remove or darken the gloves but I kind of like the overall visual.
