Tonal Research- Alexander Linder

Artwork courtesy of Alexander Linder. Early concepts for ‘Dream City.’

For the tonal aspect to this world, Conánn suggested we start with the basics. Pieces with no more than five tones, to show the depth of the piece, before going back and adding to them.

While researching into this I found amazing examples through the work of Alexander Linder. Above you can see where he begins, with simple blocking of the areas in the specific tones. He then adds the details after to further show the elements of the world.

In my own work I want to look into this

Linder also used pencil for his earlier pieces, as you can be limited with the tones you can use.
