Your Chains Are Still Mine...

You will sing for me!

Trying to up the ante with this paper cut stuff. I'm getting urged to keep at it and so I shall.

You're Turning Violet, Violet!

"Well, well, well, two naughty, nasty little children gone. Three good, sweet little children left."

I'm not so sure if I'm going to do a Charlie one yet. We'll see.

Some Life Paintings

That will never be finished. So sad.

Top is oils, bottom acrylic.

Really wish I could scan these, but literally ever time I try, there's someone hogging the scan computer... one day, one day...

The Wicked, Wild-Eyed Women of Portabello Town

Sketching some pirates for an epic painting for an epic song by Emerson Lake and Palmer, which is based on the Pirates of the Caribbean ride in Disneyland. More to come.

The Crane Wife

Another quick concept image for "The Crane Wife"

April 29, 2012

It Was A White Crane...

It was a helpless thing...
Upon a red stain, with an arrow in it's wing...
and it called and cried, and it called and cried so... Here's a concept painting for the Crane Wife, I'm not entirely content with this. I may revisit, but for now, and the sake of the project, here it is. The colors are off, I'll scan it all nice proper soon.

And The Grackle Came...

Alex Krokus
, who makes awesome animations and illustrations, also has this awesome band called Wood Spider, and this band has a song aptly named, "Our Monster Song", Which features the notorious and positively awful monster, The Grackle.

I thought way back when in 2009, that It'd be super fun to conceptualize this beastie, however I really didn't get around to it till recently.

I'm thinking about building a small portion of a concept art based portfolio around this story and character. I'm really, very excited about this!

Lets have some fun

People Standing Left of Me

And People Standing Right, OW!

This Here Giraffe...

This got a bit of paint for the senior show. The coloring is off in this photo, I promise the differences aren't this dramatic.

The piece I got in this years FIT senior show. Haha, the only decent painting I've ever done.

Puggy Comps?

Okay, so I physically painted one... and It kinda hate it...
It's also one of those nights when you don't really want to paint anymore... and yeah.
So I threw the one color comp and tried to show what I really intended for this...

Heres the unedited comp. (BLAND BLAND BLAND)

Slightly color corrected to show what I envisioned.

THE WILD CARD. Because I have a feeling the somewhat monochromatic pallet I want to go for won't fly...But whatever. I really want the the Mono-chrome to work.
SO IMA MAKE IT WORK... maybe. But I sort of like the feeling of this one too... hrm...

(back to the painting board)

Some Weekend Sketches

I few things I did instead of my assignments.

I'm happy with the new face! Time for color-comps... FINALLY!

Back the Drawing Board

I was asked to back track on my Wonka project and depart from my movie poster teasers. I started to expand upon my first idea. Showing here:

These are just two more sketches based on the first one.

I hope to eventually expand on the teaser posters, but for now I'm going to head back into the collage movie poster realm!

Phantom 10,000

Trista Moldovan and Hugh Panaro.

This was done mostly as a way to assuage my jealously and contempt for the fact I couldn't attend Phantom of the Opera's 10,000 performance. Due to insufficient funds and poor planning on my part, I had to sit on the sidelines for this occasion. I tried to combat the feelings of devastation by creating this task for myself.

At 2:00pm, the time of the 10,000 performance, I put on my favorite, less than completely legitimate, recording of Phantom... Then I started to paint. Once the recording, and the performance were over... I stopped painting and just left it as It was.
Just a little monument to the 2.5 hour show, the record breaking 2.5 hour show that means so much to me and sooo many others.

...Its also the only way I stayed sane during those 2.5 hours...

I Don't Always Draw Pugs

But When I do, I draw them in bustle dresses.

The Veruca Problem

I'm not entirely sure if I should show Vercua's face in her poster!
In the other two posters, you cannot see their faces... and I kind of like that.

What do you think, internet?

Some Brainstorm Sketching

A few little concept doodles. This could be fun!
Veruca and Mike are next!
