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.

Wow! Great studio you've got there!!

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)
Thanks Lars, I couldn't find your flash. Cheers!
Cool work Fred, Oils over acrylic . . . is that a faster technique?
I don't know if it's faster, but I feel more comfortable to handle any changes before going to final. I can lay in a good foundation so the oils don't have to do as much work.
Fred! I posted in the past once again!! For those who are interested; my Cheney has moved from my flash to my blogspot!
Specially for those hungry eyes out there!
