Poster preliminary sketch

ⓒ Janine Tondu
Basically a sketch for my digital painting poster project/contest. I'm pretty sure I am not going to win so I figure I can have fun with this one and go at my own pace. It's a girl in a pond catching fireflies with her mouth while a little froggie is watching. Sounds cute but can I execute it, I will find out. 15 min sketch done in Corel Painter (I am sorta loving that program).

Perceptions and Realities

ⓒ Janine Tondu
Another proj. I am currently working on. So far this is just the sketch and the quick color comp, well as quick as I tried to make it. Basically it is my version of perception vs. reality. People gain their perceptions from what they hear around them, so therefore people base their realities on what they hear. Not too sure if that makes sense to you but when I was thinking it up it sounded perfectly plausible to me.

The Pianist

My digital painting for class. I can at least say this much I had my moments when I actually enjoyed working on it, so thats a good sign. I just hope this is the stepping stone toward better digital paintings, because I really, really want to get better.

Balerina Abbey

ⓒ Janine Tondu
Practicing my speed painting I decided to do my new character Abigail, I had used her in my children's book. I love her and I love ballet so what better to paint then abbey doing ballet. I would definitely love for some critiques so please do give some pointers if you'd like.
