Okay, here we go..
Jumping from Dredd back to a few smaller watercolors...
this orange splotch... i've just decided...
will be a tree.
but i'll set aside the watercolor to dry... meanwhile start inking this Dredd commission. It actually went pretty slowly..
i had fun trying something i haven't drawn in ages though.
any guy with a big jaw seems up my alley.
Jumping to another watercolor, these are tiny ones, 3 by 4 paper.
this one came out so fast
i forgot to take photos the process..
back to a little more on the Judge again... I wanna stay loser on the lower body, but keep his head and shoulder and upper body in focus with some detail.
is shoulder will look a tighter than this.
by blur... i mean more like... abstract vertical lines.
meanwhile here's how the tree turned out..
always one for something child-like
perfect balance to those dark angst-ridden super heros, eh?
here's a taller piece of bristol i did one of my 1900s gibson portraits on
just a breath of fresh air..
you know, i used to think i prefer paintings of pastoral subject matter to darker things, but that's not true. I seem to enjoy both sides..
so it's obvious i skipped lunch and succumbed to junk to finish Dredd. : )
here's another shot of it.. yellower lighting makes him look transparent.
And here's it is. Hopefully the guy who bought it won't feel cheated i got a little abstract on the feet. It actually took just as log to paint it this way rather than a fully realistic version.
You never know how it will turn out when you sit down to paint something, do you?
So there it is folks. Four in a row.
Now this time i PROMISE i won't wait two weeks before another post..
