Summer Project 2015: Thumbnails #36-71

Here is another group of thumbnails I've made for my summer project. I continued with making silhouettes which ended up being quite a challenge so I started combining different silhouettes I've made or adding bits on/removing some parts to see how it looked. I like how some of them turned out while others I find dull but I suppose that's the point of making thumbnails, not all of them work out the way you want.

I've also made a group of thumbnails traditionally using pen, pencil and marker. I really enjoyed making these, it's been a while since I drew traditionally just because I've been
preferring using a graphics tablet. I feel like doing these sketches in an A5 book has really helped me come up with some new ideas.  

When it comes to favourites in these groups, I like #38, 39 and 49 the most for the batch of silhouettes. For the traditional sketches I really love #64 (both drawing it and the result) and I also like #52, 55, 59, 65, 71 but I don't really dislike too many of the, it's fun to experiment anyway.

I'm not sure if I'm going to do traditional or digital sketches for my last group of thumbnails or if I'll add colour but I'm just going to do what I feel is right at the time and see how it turns out. I'm really enjoying this project so far though, it's interesting to see my outcomes and compare it to what others have come up with.

Thanks for reading!


  1. 38 just keeps catching my eye - he/she/it seems very sweet-natured to me! :)

    1. It's helped me come up with a few of those other creatures I drew...when I made the silhouette it reminded me of the Hanar in Mass Effect
