When I originally did the first (green) mask back in 2012 I wanted to do a series using a very simple pallet of primary and secondry colours. It's taken me more than 2 years but I've finally got onto the second one. Maybe in 2 more years I'll get onto the 3rd.
Here are the inks for starters.
(The design sketch for this mask can be found in the previous post)
I recently worked with pictureDRIFT on an animation for James Taylor's current 2014 US tour. The visuals are for the live performance of his recent single "You and I". Reflecting the lyrics of the song, the animation tells the a story of a man and woman separated from each other by time and space and their journey to be with each other. I copied actors in charcoal which were then animated with background.
So I've just watched Scott Robertson's Gnomon video on how to draw planes and I had a go at my own. I didn't deviate to much from what was on the video so my designs aren't really my own. I hope to get onto that at a later date though.
The first one is a pretty boring one as I get my hand in.
I'm starting to get a bit more confident but still having trouble with how the wings intersect the fuselage.
These are freehand and as can be seen the perspective is a bit off.
Back to ball point.
This one I decided to follow Scott Robertson as he drew his. I simplified the detail elements he put in and put in a few of my own.
This one I decided to go it solo and draw a sort of sub.
Many years ago (2003) I painted this image of Hammerstein from 2000AD.
I was very pleased at the time but very quickly started to see problems with it - too many to go into. I liked the pallet (the black/green background doesn't show up) and the lighting I had set up but I knew that I hadn't propperly acheived what I had set out to do.
This year I started a concept art class at St Leonards TAFE in Sydney called Production Art Department (which I sadly had to defer semester 2 of) where I was learning the necessary skills to make the painting I'd always intended. And so, here it is with some progress shots also.
First the ink drawing which i did in my sketch book, scanned and...
printed out on some better paper. A base coat an some base colours:
As my first gouache/acrylic painting in almost 10 years I'm quite pleased with it but I'm sure that very soon I'll see all the things wrong with it.
