Werewolf?

It's DrawerGeek Friday! Topic is werewolves. Despite my efforts, I could only think of the most cliche werewolf images. None of them interested me, so I decided to go out to left field on this.

Very cool man. Question, what do you use for palette when painting digitally? Do you make your own? I like your use of color, great work man!

indeed, the mittens create a real character. What are his interests besides devouring young maidens at full moon? I wonder

Awesome! I would be so sad though if I got bitten by that fellow and had to turn into that every full moon. Ha ha :)

Thanks guys! I really appreciate the comments. Jason, when I'm painting digitally, I try to quickly establish my palette with loose brushstrokes on the canvas, just to see if what's in my head actually has potential. If it does, I'll just pick my colours accordingly - sometimes picking the actual colour I want to be there, other times picking a colour that I want to mix with what's already on the canvas. With this particular image, I hadn't decided on the actual fleshtones yet, so I did a monochrome underpainting first. But usually I like to go in direct with colour.

He is SWEEET! He really just wants to be left alone in peace to do some sugar craft and baking but all that hairiness gets in the way of Baking Artistry.

I love him, Marco, he's great!

Shuku - you got it exactly right! That is precisely what I was thinking as I drew him. Thanks everyone again for your comments!

Are those oven mitts? Even if they're not, I'm thinking they are. And that makes this all the more awesome! Totally goes against cliches. Nice!

Blogger Jeremy said...

Holy Shomoley, this awesome work! Sorry for my ignorance, I'm not a painter, but it reminds me a little of Mark Behm's work. Maybe its similar inspirations but being compared to Mark is one of best compliments I can offer. Keep up this very fine work and ya, I agree with you - Milt Kahl is amazing!

Blogger Manuel LariƱo said...

Cool idea

Blogger marcobucci said...

HAHAHAHAHAH Jeremy - I thought somebody might say that. Mark's played a big role in my own learning. He's helped me from the beginning when I was really struggling, and he's one of the painters whose work I look at for inspiration/information. I do hope, however, that my stuff doesn't come off as a cheap ripoff of his; I'm definitely not out to imitate anybody. Although I often feel that, with any given painting of mine, one particular influence is showing through a bit too much. Thanks for your compliment, though - it is a big one.

A wolf of many talents, not only is he a culinary artist, he has fashion sense also. The color of his oven mitts match the blue green of this skin spots. Now that is taste!
