#158 - King

I recently picked up "Alla Prima: Everything I know About Painting" by Richard Schmid. And learned a lot about edges, focal point, a bit about color. I tried to apply what I learned to this painting.

Life drawing marathon

I attended my first figure drawing marathon this year, 4 days of figure drawing with amazing guest speakers: Mark McDonnell, Cameron Chun, and Glen Vilppu. I had a lot of fun and learned so much and got a ton of practice in before Sheldon's anatomy class next semester. Although, I must say the timing on shutting down the heat in the building for a week could not have come at a worse time.

Anyway, I had a blast and hope we continue this tradition in the years to come, I'll look forward to them. It would be nice to compare these drawings to the ones I do a year from now at the next marathon!

Color Practice

Very vaguely inspired by TinTin. Saw it in IMax 3d recently and it was amazing.

my illustration teacher gave me a great critique on this one concerning the composition so i changed that a bit.

I spent hours messing with the colors on this one though, and I'm still not happy with it. but its time to move on.

Desert View

Hello! hope you all had a good New Year,

Heres the lines and simple values for the next piece I'll be working on.

I've found that putting in the time and effort to get a solid thumbnail and tight lines really pays of during the coloring part, making it a whole lot more fun.

Color soon!
