Yeah here is a dude I fiddled out in the past day or two, I tried not to get sucked into the detail areas but, rather focused on marrying some of the shapes together really well. I think It might have worked out. But, in the end just another exercise.
I hope you enjoy and also, I really hope you comment.
I started watching this Naval epic on AMC this weekend.
The film was an Oscar nominee in a handful of categories back in 66'. But, best by far was the fact that Steve McQueen was in it, and Mako too. It was a good deal all around in my opinion. So, I settled in to start the film at 3 am Sunday morning and was well into it. But, after about two hours I got worried, I hadn't seen any plot resolution and new characters where being still introduced..at 5.15 am..Gulp.
Upon further inspection this film is like 4 hours or more in length. that means I'd have to stay up for another two hours to finish it. But, I was exhausted at this point from a lack of sleep the night before. I resolved to netflix it later, shut off the film (have to watch less tube), and go to bed. Which is what I did, only to wake the next morning and realize I could have digitally recorded the other two hours when I went to bed......I am a dope.
But that aside here is a drawing of a sailor. I did while watching the goodness.
Who is this wildhaired Rocker?
So, I am staggering back into the realm of caricature just for the sake of relearning better visualization skills, exaggeration and just, feeling out better painting, with Photoshop. Most of the inspiration for this new attempt at painting and process is credited to the work of JOE BLUHM of http://joebluhm.blogspot.com. he is really great, I'd dig the chance to meet with him pick his brain and possibly do some drawigns.
This work was 100% photoshop cover to cover and took a few hours here and there... I am pleased with how it turned out and am seeing room for improvement. I would dig some feedback if you got some, I am gonna push for better blog traffic here now.
Much love to you all,
I helped make this little "anijam THINGY" in New York Last month...
Please go and check it out.......if you want to see the individual sequence drawings. That I did they have a flickr page too with all the frames....
I participated twice because I was too hammered to remember having gone up once already.
I am images 0044 through about 0036(between pg. 6 and 7). and then again from 0146 to about 0154 (this is on pg. 11) There you'll find SUPER kAT ...and some dude with a fish in the air.
