Thumbnail Page 4 - Armilla

Concept art is a tricky thing, there isn't always a definite result straight away, thats why thumbnails are simple and effective as they help determine what your strengths and weaknesses are.

Looking at the fourth and final city called Armilla, I can instantly image what it must have been like to walk through such a desolate place. The discretion might lack in a inspirational sort of way as there isn't much to draw from it. But there are ways in which this can be used to make plenty of thumb nails. I did struggle a little - tablet malfunctions mainly but I managed to create a thumbnail set in response to the description provided.

The cities Baucis and Esmerelda images will be coming in post tomorrow as I wasn't able to save them properly to be able to access them on multiply computers.

So here is Armilla:

Armilla - Invisible Cities
I numbered these correctly and I will be re-numbering my other ones.


  1. Hi Julia,

    I like 50 - but maybe avoid colour in the first instance and go for a bigger range of mark-making - not so smooooooth.... There's much more energy in the scratchier thumbnails...

    see link!

  2. Thanks Phil, the only reason why it looks like that is because the tablet's touch sensitive was playing up and ever stoke I made was solid and I couldn't make the marks I wanted to.
