Go Go Britannia!

Why not? I think Austin Powers would approve.

Face It!

It's been really busy lately, so not a lot of spare time for painting. I did manage to get in some practice faces from photos, they're always a good quick way to try some different techniques.

Art Theft Update: Success!

I contacted ebay's Vero group (copyright infringement) and they immediately got the piece removed. Kudos to them for doing the right thing.

STOLEN ART!

Well, some interesting news. Imagine my surprise when I stumbled upon on of my pieces from this site for sale, print on demand from an EBAY shop. Lambretta Love from 2011 was stolen directly from this site, name removed. Lesson learned. Don't post art at a reasonable resolution, or add a big fat watermark. Anyway, I've contacted Ebay to get these clowns to remove it from their site, we'll see what happens next.

The Sorceress

We had the great Stacy Walker last week as a sorceress, she has modeled for many fantasy artists and has made the cover of no less than 13 issues of Heavy Metal magazine. I thought I'd show the workshop sketch and what I did with it later to make it more of a concept piece. The background is made up. Again, just for fun and practice.

More Workshop Sketches

A few more from the last month or so, Aging Starlet, Femme Fatale and Steampunk Professor. Most are 20 minute sketches.

2 For Fun

Here are a couple of new pieces just for fun, a character portrait study of a granny with grit and giant robot taking an oil break. The Apocalypse sure makes ya thisty!

Circe

Larva (yes, Larva) was our model last night in a nymphy sort of costume. It didn't matter, she was great, I added a little photoshop cleanup to hide my mistakes and ended up with a couple decent drawings.

Maid Redux

Sara returns as the French maid, always a treat to draw. These were charcoal with a bit of color, but I couldn't resist adding tone and a wash or two on the computer. (plus I fixed a couple of drawing boo boos after scanning) Oui oui, mon ami!!

Lucky Jack's

Feeling a little down-at-the-heels? Lost the family nest egg on Red 23? Are Crazy Eddie and the boys looking to break your kneecaps?? Well, just stagger on in to Lucky Jack's Jackpot Lounge and take that happy dive into oblivion with Jack's All-In Go-For-Broke Crapped-Out Cocktail! Cheers!

Guilt update

Finally something new, a color piece for the fun of it and a couple sketches from drawing workshop.

Still Alive!

It's been really busy at work so not a lot of time for extra art.
Here are a few workshop drawings to fill the void though. I added some tone afterward just because.

Emma Peel Returns!

"Mrs. Peel, you're needed!"(or "We're needed") was how my favorite episodes of The Avengers TV show began. I wanted to do a new tribute piece with a better likeness than the one from a couple years ago. The pose is right from a production still, but how can you improve on Diana Rigg in a leather jumpsuit! A poster-y piece for fun.

The Z That Stands For Zorro

Or a guy dressed as Zorro, but looked a little more like Michael Jackson. I had to bulk him up a bit and give him a mustache, and voila, Zorro! Sort of. Oh, and his sword was a piece of pipe.

Tanks for your support!

Groan. Anyway, new art for my never-ending post-apocalyptic epic. Who doesn't enjoy a great little tank? Close support for our end-of-the-world army. Maybe this will eventually go somewhere.

So I Lied...

I didn't mess with the original, but Photoshop to the rescue! I couldn't let a great pose and costume go to waste.

Steamy

Stacy posed last night as a steampunk heroine with appropriately complex gear. It was hard to simplify, I just wanted to draw all the details. An hour on each pose would have done it, we were doing about 30 minutes each. It's tempting to work back into them later, but the chance of messing it up is high, so leave well enough alone.
