Red Riding Hood Keys


Here are some more color keys/studies! Color keys are so much fun because they are fast, and therapeutic. They are so important to everything crucial: lighting, composition, value, and of course color/mood. The rest is just icing. The first image is also a composition study of a Little Princess by Alfonso Cuaron. It had a very simple composition and played around with it further.

These are lovely - really nicely painted. I hope you get some animation work because your environments are nice too. I like the painterly quality in some of them (especially the 'patchwork' on a mountain in one).

Many more styles of the james bond watches such as the Blackbird and the Crosswind special are also available. The Breitling Navitimer developed in 1952 has an operational navigation computer which calculates airborne navigations and is able to convert miles into nautical kilometers.
