I am creating a piece of art revolving around the word ocean. 

Ocean Part 1

The first thing I did was research other artists work. I was amazed with the other pieces I found. For me this can be a little intimidating because the level of a lot of work I found was so above what I can create. I was inspired by the cartoon pieces.

My next step was to create thumbnails of what I wanted to create. I wanted to do something a little different then typical sea creatures, so I brainstormed some idea's out. 

This is what I came up with

The first thumbnail is of a giant squid. Actually its a submarine in the shape of a giant squid.

My other thumbnails is a whale submarine. I do know that submarines are made to look like whales but I wanted this to look like more of a cartoon whale, maybe something an artist from the past would think   an underwater craft would look like.

There are a few things I would like to fix on these thumbnails but the basic concept is there. I am unsure how what media I an going to use for this but I think it will be something light, perhaps water-colour.

Ocean Part 2

My two favourite things in life are music and art. I've decided to make album covers going forward with this blog.

For my process I used pencil crayon and digital paint. I first drew all of my pieces on tracing paper.

I then created the background by making a rough pencil crayon drawing and then a digital background.

These are the two files meshed together

I then added all the elements together in photoshop

Ocean Part 3

After I created the artwork for this cover I then decide to make the font. I used the same background as the art work and placed it into the font.
