Working on some concept art for The Lab. I wanted to illustrate the differences in Liesel & Brandon's personalities & styles of humor. While Liesel is a very humorous person, always cracking jokes & making cheesy puns, she doesn't quite care for Brandon's style of humor. She thinks it's childish, & she finds it a bit annoying, too. She dislikes Brandon at first & doesn't warm up to him until after she's been working with him for a while. This is because he's always playing practical jokes on everyone. It makes him appear very unprofessional, & he acts like he doesn't even want to be there in the first place. He's never pulled any pranks that could put anyone in danger or anything of the like, but Liesel still gets pretty annoyed with him pranking her constantly. The reason why Brandon acts so unprofessional is because he doesn't want to be a chemist. He's a puppeteer, & he's a rather talented one, too. But he's never been able to pursue his passion professionally because he has an overbearing father who forced him to follow in his footsteps & become a chemist. He tells Brandon that his passion is a waste of time & will never get him anywhere in life, & Brandon uses humor to cope, much like Liesel does. But she doesn't know this at first, & it takes him a while to open up about it. When he tells her, Liesel lightens up a bit, & the two start to become friends. But before Brandon does tell her, she tends to be a bit irritable around him.
I also wanted to play around with backgrounds a little bit. My backgrounds are usually pretty minimalistic, & I wanted to try something new. So, I tried to make it look like they were sitting in front of a large window with a picnic table outside because I honestly couldn't think of anything else.. The background itself could be better, too... ^^' But I think it came out okay, considering it's a first attempt & my layer & color tools kept glitching the whole time I was coloring this.
I'll also be posting a speed-draw of this on YouTube sometime this week if anyone's interested.
