This was originally intended as blog designed so that Andy Norton, a postgraduate in Creative Digital Media, could discuss his influences whilst working on a comic for his Creative Portfolio Development module on that master’s degree.
Now, the blog is intended to share articles relevant to his interests, as well as his artwork (past and present), as an experience graphic designer, with a background in illustration and animation.

Post a Drawing Every Day- Day 28- Work in Progess Illustration of 'A Volcanic Mining Facility Run by a Race of Salamander People
I have been mostly working on an art jam to depict this description: "A Volcanic Mining Facility Run by a Race of Salamander People"
So after some research, I had an idea of what I wanted to do, so I sketched these ideas out.
After doing these pencil sketches, I had an idea of what to do for the final piece.
Work in Progress Illustration
I decided to apply some block colouring, and also extract some pencil sketches to get some definition- this is kind of similar to what I was trying to do for an earlier piece, only without inking anything this time around. As I was also trying to extract certain drawings from certain sketches, I made myself into a conundrum about trying to achieve this for most characters, and objects, used in the piece. I also haven't had time to toy with texturing, or lighting, as I want to place down all the important elements in place. I should have some time tomorrow to do a more polished piece.
