Youtube Guys

By in color, heads, men, paintings, watercolor, watercolour

guys2

Painted these guys when I was up late last night, watching Youtube. Very tired now, but I worked hard today and solved some problems. So, I’m happy. I don’t think the cats are happy, but maybe they’ll manage.

Stroller woman. Not quite as charming as the ones in the sketches, but I’m not unhappy with how this turned out.

Street Page

By in pencil, sketches

red-page1

Sketches I did while listening on the phone, and watching moms take their kids back from daycare. Trying to capture shapes and action. Also a bit of personality.

Value study

By in sketches

valerie1

This is a value study of a character in a storyboard sequence I’ve been doing. I wanted to make sure I had the right colours for shadows on her yellow jacket. The jacket is an homage to “Kill Bill.”

I’m pretty lazy, and don’t usually do studies, because that’s extra work, and I usually like to wing it. But this character is appearing a lot in this story, and I wanted to be sure the colours I was using on her were ones I could live with. These are also fun drawings, I think.

Pair o’ Cats

I’m calling this a “warm-up,” since I’m really working on a much bigger job. Still, this taught me some things, and finishing it freed up a watercolour board.

Spring-like Sketches

It was actually possible, yesterday, to sit on the balcony and draw this little postal van, illegally parked across the street.

The above is a tiny little thing, but the colours are pretty.

I have no idea what that backdrop means, but I’m happier with the painted characters.

Colour studies

busness11

This is me, working on colour and light in a purely digital format. I’m trying to limit my palette. And still keep it interesting.

Rue Notre Dame

rue-notre-dame

At least I think that’s where it is. I didn’t write down the name of the street when I snapped the photo I painted this from.

Green Girl

By in color, digital

green-girl

One of the nice things about digital painting, which I think I’ve said before, is that it’s infinitely workable. This picture was sitting around for a while, looking lousy, but came to life for me with the leather jacket and streak of purple.
