STRANGER THINGS ZINE

My subject for this zine was the relationship between Will and Eleven, which is pretty non-existent on-screen. This piece would take place after season 2 when Jane is finally allowed to live amongst her friends and go to school with them. I wanted to show them becoming friends and Will teaching her about D&D so that she could impress Mike.

For this piece I used Maya to quickly stage exactly what I wanted to paint, nailing down the perspective right off the bat so I could get into color and lighting which is my favorite part.

Here was the sketch I did, depicting Will Byers tutoring the newly Jane Hopper after school in Dungeons & Dragons.

This is the final illustration for the zine, featuring a warm and glowy classroom safe from the horrors of the upside-down :)
