Here is a quickie warmup from a few nights ago, again on the worst, 40 year old legal 20# copy paper you can imagine. Spraypaint splatter, ink, pen, and fattened – if lively – emperor bust. Thank you for looking. please comment or write to me? i only get bots here.
besides cropping, the phone numbers i had to hide below and the vector nectar watermark, this is untouched post scan-wise. The paper is probably 40 year old 20# legal paper that an old friend gave me years ago. drawn from life, vintage dress on ancient dress form. tryin a get back in the swing after a very rough couple weeks there. bear with me pretty please? thank you kindly for looking.
Somehow i have to get a few of these books. For now i will spare you most of the piss poor hands i studied from the volume JUST devoted to hands. I’m tryin to loosen up and draw in graphite again. Finding that i want to treat it like ink sorta. Not the right way to look at it.
Graphite is grey, after all.
And here’s a costume ref concept from a fun project i’m crankin on right nowz – inked on the crappiest, bleediest paper you can imagine. woot only 98 more pages of it to use. :-/
Technically, the extra arms shouldn’t be … posed … but at this point i cant resist the chance to emote more hands.
Haven’t posted much here since mid december – trying to get the kinks worked out of my domino stack of social media updates to make life easier. Lots more to show very soon!
