The Key

My best friend, Larry Jones’ landscape philosophy; Give them something to look at, someplace to go, and something to do when they get there. I have adopted these words as my landscaping creation philosophy also. I drew this landscape just so I could use a bunch of wonderful Copic markers that I received in the mail from a dear friend of mine. Senior~ Wenceslaus on top of the RoBot was an afterthought.

In this sketch, I use detail to achieve atmospheric perspective more than color or shade. I used the same colors from the landscape in the robot to lessen the mechanical aspect and give him more of an organic look. I opted to leave the background white to keep the focus on the characters. If I were going to put color to it, I would use a blue wash fading to white from top to bottom. As it is now, you can imagine the white as a wall of snow behind them.
