Star Belly - Finish

Here's the final. I fumbled around for awhile trying to find some sort of appropriate colour scheme. I wound up keeping the palette somewhat analagous, as a change of pace. The circle in the background is completely stolen from Leyendecker/Rockwell.

Star Belly - Sketch

A sneak peak at my contribution for this week's DrawerGeeks. Quick ballpoint sketch at work, while waiting for some renders. Stay tuned for the finished painting on Friday!

This is a painting of my friend Tom. He substitutes when the life model doesn't show up. Personally, I like painting him more than most of the models. This was a 2.5 hour study.

Break Sketches @ Work

At work I constantly have to deal with large PSD files and lots of layers. Lately I've felt the need to take breaks and do these little thumbnail colour studies. They're painted at about 350 pixels wide, and take 20-30 mins. Just keeps me thinking about simplifying things down to readable shapes. Something I have to remember, even when I'm forced to use a million hi-res layers.
