Jurne paints Stae 2 sketches
I ended up choosing these two sketches out of the style dossier Stae2 had on me.
It was really fun trying these styles out. I chose the chunky sketch for the truck because it was something I was more comfortable with given the amount of time we could spend at this particular spot. The shape of the E was pretty foreign to me, and I ended up sketching it a few times before it looked like the Stae2 version. I really liked how the U and N of the sketch are little dudes trying to hang with the older J, R and E.
The piece I ended up doing was the computer rock style Stae laced. I went for this one because I knew it was going to be really difficult to pull off; repeated angles of the bars are something Ive never foxed with. I went about painting the sketch in a manner opposite to that which I usually do. Did the sketch first, and then finished the 3D before I filled in the piece. I figured I might burn myself out trying to get the letters done first if I painted them first, and then skimp on the 3D details. The 3D really drew me to the sketch initially, and I want to do it justice.
It ended up being a "watching the sun rise" kind of night, but Im happy with the result. In hindsight, I would add more black to the 3D for sure. Also, I would maybe spruce up the doo dads inside the fill, maybe add a light blue or a lime green.
Can't thank you enough for the amazing sketches Stae. I owe you a bunch...
