Last of the Four...

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 

or silly. 

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. 

bigger still. 

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..

The expressions/ posture you choose and the colors really go together really well with the women. Love how the older profile womans hair is almost oraganic and trails out the top of the page. And you can never go wrong with dred. Is some of the new stuff going in your books? Thanks for another motivating post.

I guess that 'Dredd' is yet another variant cover for IDW, right? :)

I am honoerd that you did the commision and love that you put up some process picks on your blog. This is my favorite website on the internet. Thanks so much Sam!! Hopefully I can get you to do another commision for me in the near future.
