Will Graham and his Dogs- Process

Will Graham and his Dogs

I started with a sketch with the background and 
characters each on separate layers

I refined Will's pose

Here's the sketch showing all layers

I refined all the line work and changed the 
lineart colors

I started painting with a midtone

I used a complimentary color scheme


Flat mid-tones on the characters

Everyone together. I used similar colors
throughout, varying the value

I added cast shadows under characters
 

 I added shadows on another layer
and highlights as well as a texture over the 
background.

 I replaced the paitned BG 
with a gradient and replaced the tree with 
a more antler-type of foliage.

Artemisia 300 Rise of an Empire-Process


I started with a color palette idea 

& did sketch over top a blue texture

Cleaned up the line work
 

I started how I might do an acrylic painting with the darks
on a separate layer, but realized this wasn't going in 
the direction I wanted.

On a layer under the line work I did all the midtones

I added shadows on a  multiplied layer


I added highlights using a charcoal brush with some texture
I added a fog png over top and some BG shadows

Sketchbook Project 2011

Art House Co-op Sketchbook Project 2011

My Projects Theme is
"Make Mine a Double"

I have chosen to create works based on
Conjoined Twins as cartoonie Pin-ups
Twins are conjoined at the binding and can be viewed as
"individuals" by folding over the other page.
I have also added an anatomical drawing to each
page as well as information regarding conjoined twins.
Fun so far! 10pgs down 30 to go! ;)

Thousands of sketchbooks will be exhibited at galleries and museums as they make their way on tour across the country.

After the tour, all sketchbooks will enter into the permanent collection of The Brooklyn Art Library, where they will be barcoded and available for the public to view.

28769 artists from 94 countries around the world are participating. The tour starts February, 2011.
