The illustration for the U12_3 scene depicts people riding in the back of an old pick up truck sitting on furniture. The houses in the background should show ornate and traditional Siberian wooden buildings.
I pieces together multiple scenes and objects to construct a rough draft of the scene. I chose to use a truck later on that had a more open bed, but I stuck with older style of furniture
The background of the scene was my favorite part of the scene to do. I loved drawing the ornate windows and woodwork of the houses. The background couldn’t be too detailed, but enough to show that traditional woodwork. The truck and the furniture were hard to fit into the scene to get the perspective right, but I think I got it down.
I cleaned up the drawing and added more trees in the background to fill out space. The tonal renderings were simple in the background and required just simple shading. On the truck, however, I wanted to show the shine of the coating as it drove in the sun, and the shading was much more dynamic and had more contrast than the background. The people are simple in the drawing but require some detail to make it look more realistic.
Overall this was one of my favorite scenes to illustrate!
