Character Sketches 8





Character Sketches 8
 Did Not start a big piece this week.  Instead just played around with characters and styles and approaches. 

In the image above the lady is a study of a model from this site  Dorgmal Snow   http://www.1-6th.co.uk/.  The pose was what was interesting but the design is really nice too.  The same for the axe guy which is a sculpt from http://pintordeminiaturas.com/.

Riders

Tried to do something more complicated in terms of composition here. As ever whenever I try something way outside the comfort zone there is lots to be learned.  This one went at a very fast pace initially but slowed way down with detailing and fiddling with the rocks.

Waifs and Strays



Time was I was very disciplined about finishing everything I started.  It was a good way of forcing myself to work through problems.  As time has gone on I have accumulated a lot of work in different states of unfinished which sit in a work folder.  I dont know if its a good thing or not.  Of late it is typical that I will work on a few different pieces at a time so some just  get forgotten about.

Fungi

A switch back to traditional medium for this one. Done in gouache.  Finding it hard  to preserve areas for highlights.  Certain if I was to do it again would have tackled it a bit differently.

Goo Gun Guy

A lot of the random doodles of late have ended up as characters.  Here is another one to add to the collection. About half way through I was playing around with filters and added a poster edge filter which I kept and then worked on top of.
