"Baby steps, Bob. Baby steps"

I always like to see the process behind a painting. I also find that treat a painting like you are intending it to show a process, you tend to concentrate on each process rather than rushing to a finish. So here's a block on to a .... cleaner block in. I know it's a little redundant, but I was pretty happy with the first pass, and how much of it was retained in the "final". It almost looks like I knew what I was doing. For the record, I never feel like I really do.

part 3

Super busy at work. I don't get to do these as much as I like, and I think it shows. I do like the last one though, I think I figured something out with that one. Still trying to figure out what it is, though.

IPad studies

I recently invested in an IPad, and these are some studies from the past week. Mostly from Burbank . Using the sketchbook pro app, and trying to keep these 40-60 minutes. I'm aiming for one a day. Lets see if I can keep it up.

Baltimore: The Steadfast Tin Soldier and the Vampire

I really liked this book, written by Mike Mignola and Christopher Golden. I read it twice. That's a big deal for me. These are a couple of the characters (from left to right) Aischros, Dr. Rose, Childress, and Mr. Grey. I tried to go with a more graphic look, moving towards stronger shapes and less detail, and was really influenced by 50's animation design. Hopefully I'll paint them up as if they were 3d models. How awesome would it be to have a 3d animated movie, pushed in terms of design and content. Vampires, man eating marionettes, lake monsters, plagues, and demon bears that crawl out of soldiers all taking place during WW1. Del Toro.... dude.... get crackin'.

Knight Study

A study of a photo I found a while back while looking for armor reference. I always wanted to do a study of it, and finally got around. I don't know where I found it, but I wish I could find more photos like this to do studies of.
