the vortex

part of my daily sketch project. i have been keeping with the night theme, trying to keep the moon as a secondary light source in most of the pieces. trying to stay around the ideas of magic, monsters myth with a whimsical feel. i am more focused on landscape, clouds and the scene right now. i will have to start a focus study on characters and style soon. copyright scott cattanach 2015
