In prog

This ones for Rommel...
I hope this helps to answer your question. First I try to figure out the overall gesture. I usually do this without reference. This keeps things a bit more exaggerated and helps to push the rhythm more. Then, I go to reference for all the bits I can't figure out. Which works out pretty well for 2 reasons. 1- it forces me to solve more problems with understanding how the forms actually move and work. 2- it makes sure that the reference helps to inform what I want to do, without dictating what it has to be. Usually I have like 5 or more references for 1 image. A hand here, a foot there, a smile I like. And then it all gets frankensteined together. Once I have the overall line, I start to add value, and then color. Always in that order. If I was a better painter, I would start with value and let the forms just loosly come together. but this is what seems to be working for me right now.

Here are some of the weblings when they were still in progress.
Hope you like 'em.

I'm actually not sure how much more of these I wanna put up. Maybe another set or two, But then I thinkI really ought to diversify. If for no other reason than to keep myself entertained :P

more to come, eventually...


I'm usually not very good about adhering to or keeping track of my process, but this time I made a special effort to remember to keep my stages. This was an unusual piece too, in that it started small and just got bigger and bigger. Anyhoo, its finally done and I can move on.
