The Week again...
Last night's work. I'll be posting some pictures from the New York Comic Con next. That is the reason I had to cram this week. I didn't get around to doing the sketches I was supposed to do. I had one illo due on Monday, 3 on Tues. and the cover for The Week on Wed.
The process. Sketch in the office on Monday. I redrew and painted a monochromatic acrylic under painting on the gesso-ed panel. Monday night. Tuesday I took a quick photo at that stage to show Brett, the AD, how the color was going. The consensus was that there needed to be an environment. I blocked one in out of my head. I wanted to be careful to make a decent composition since it wasn't planned from the start. I also didn't have a lot of time to do anything very involved. Simple wood panel, a corner of a desk cheating in. I was just thinking in shapes and then trying to figure out what would fit in them.
I signed the painting hanging on the wall as my own personal amusement. I hope it doesn't get cropped out! I got to bed around 8:30 AM-ish on Wed.. I ended up liking it.
Cheney's lips are wonderfully done by you, his lips are so special and not as easy to draw as one first would think. I think Cheney is a great kisser with acrobatic lips like his; ask the republicans! (In my flashportfolio you find my Cheney)
Specially for those hungry eyes out there!
