It's been a dark time for me in the last month of 2012 and the first half of 2013. This iPad fantasy environment sketch seemed to sum up both my mood and the weather of the day. I did it surprisingly quickly, in about 10 or 15 minutes, while I sipped an espresso on my work break in the neighboring coffeehouse. Outdoors a cold drizzle kept everything dim and dank. I will be doing a lot more of these little environment sketches, which are part of the training necessary to do "concept art."
