New piece on the way. Trying a much different rendering strategy this time around. Hopefully a success, enjoy this tiny useless thing in the meantime.

Vision slightly compromised, but remained largely true to the sketch. Tried some new techniques.

scrapped faces from new WIP painting. Skipped a major step in the production faze and didn’t notice until i was way in, so I’m just gonna use these as the general color/pallete guide and repaint the thing. Not abandoning the painting, I like the sketch.

Rough sketch for next painting. After this I’ll probably return to more pieces with more complex urban environments, I think I’ve gleaned the information I sought from this lazy-ish “character on white background” series. Who knows though. Not expecting any real response on this, just trying to keep the content flowing.

Finally finished knocking this one out, I’ve been spending most of my free time working on the actual music end of this project. Glad my workflow is finally starting to streamline, but this is a bit too digital for my tastes.

WIP. Testing a more extreme expression and pose in the newest “ROD ON WHITE (grey) BACKGROUND” test. Watch it all fall apart by the end.

Sketch from life with some added greys so you can tell what the hell is going on. One of the least shitty sketches I’ve done in a while, which could be equally read as a good or a bad thing.

ROD DOING STUFF ON WHITE BACKGROUND #4
Done in a single sitting, although I didn’t time it. More or less cool with the body/clothing, not diggin’ the face at all. Used a much different process to produce this image, not sure if it’s noticeable at all though. Also RIP H.R. GIGER, that’s a serious bummer.

"Sure, people care!"

It’s been a long time since I’ve done one of these text only posts, but I just don’t really have anything worth posting at the moment. Currently dropping all other endeavors (minus dayjob) to work on a paid animation project with roommate no. 2, Julian Marcel/Talamo/Almos-Meza. The subject matter is fairly corporate-ish, but if it comes out fun at all I’ll be sure to release snippets. Between that and my dayjob, I got my guitar repaired, so I’ve been throwing together some noisy guitar/bass demos for my multimedia project Hotrod. Been putting off that dolphin piece for other art related stuff as well, but it’s about 60 percent done so it should hopefully surface soon. Anyway, that’s the ETA. Stuff is happening. Cool. Wow! Neat.
