latest update

Well this week has been fun. Finally go the chance to go swimming wednesday, first time in 2 years. Bad, I know. But also I started really working on this comic and as far as the initial drawing goes its 1/8 done. That doesn't sound like a lot but I'm not drawing it "like a comic". Its actually ful value sketches and realistic. Plus, drawing a 3 1/2 figure or trying to fit the nose, lips and chin into an 1/8 of an inch can be difficult to say the least. So heres what my plan is for that, full value realistic rendering is 45% of this project, the other 45% is doing watercolor on a photocopy of the drawings and the 10% is word bubbles and color correction.


Comic con is next weekend! Can't wait to go :D

Sooooo

Im finished with the Ashley Wood Painting as far as I can take it myself... nah I can still give it another go! The figure feels weird to me. Like hes not grounded, hes just copy and pasted there. So I think I should wait till it dries and then take another crack at the structure, color and maybe the lighting on him.


And now, I have started Headdresses No. 5 and 6. Hopefully this week I will be also shooting 7 and 8. Can't Wait. I have at least 4 shows i'm looking to do this summer so it should be good :) Hopefully I can sell and get rid of a lot of stuff this summer. Its too much. I have at least 30 framed and unframed pieces in my garages, 5 in my room and i think one or two in the living room. Its nuts. anyway, heres my headdresses so far

Painting for today....

Soooo I worked on the ashley wood painting more today and started the underpainting for the frazetta piece. I also finally mounted this copper plate on a 4x4 woodboard. Im going to try to do a small painting on it because the copper provides a luminous quality to the painting. So heres some pics from today.
