Color Keys - King David by nicholaskole Color Keys - King David by nicholaskole
This week for Shanth Enjeti...
COLOR
We were assigned "6 color keys (4in x 2in) from an epic story involving a quest, a kingdom, and a battle with a great beast". I wrestled with this early in the week and was generally pretty colossally unproductive until yesterday when I decided I was gonna do moments from King David (which is an amazing story, that I hope to one day work on in much greater scope and detail).

I always wrestle with color, but I'm beginning to enjoy it (Shanth's fault) and these started as a struggle, but wound up being alot of fun to do. It's a great exercise to work with these little things, and I think I'll do more...maybe even do one a day during wintersession.

They're not in chronological order. But for those unfamiliar with the story, the moments are:

David and Goliath - The Ark Returns to Jerusalem
The Death of Saul - David and Bathsheba
David Annointed King - Saul and the Witch of Endor

I am also compelled to work on a King David's story! The story is very fascinating and inspiring if done correctly; but I'm so sad that nobody has done it right. I love your color concepts, they communicate the emotion of each scene - hopefully a few of us artist can get together and surprise the world with an epic telling of this story ;)

Saul's story is one of my favorites, being most fond of Paul the Apostle's writings.... these are so well done, thank you for posting/sharing.

Wow, this is quite a great impression of those episodes. Now I'm inspired to continue some work of my own.
