Here's a photo of this image I made to honor Popeye's 85th Birthday. It appeared at the Hero Complex Gallery over in L.A. last week. It showcased with a slew of other fantastic Popeye tribute artwork that you should definitely scope out if you feel the urge.
"Measuring the Forearms of Formidable Might"
|Looking back, I really relish the line work in this image and how it effected my selections on this rough comp sketch.|
|Removing the line work was my original game plan. I kept feeling that it tied things together rather nicely.|
Also, I tried to fit in as much as possible within the image that would, make the image a little more narrative and meaningful for anyone that wanted to get close and have a closer look at the image.
|The Two Tailors are specific folks.|
|A proper pedestal for the sailor.|
|A rather familiar figure on a fashion type pin up calendar.|
Thanks for checking this out.
I yam what I yam, and hope you dig it.
P.S. As always many thanks to the shows organizers for letting me make some art and share in another awesome show.
|I paid this doofus three bucks to hold my artwork, so I could take a photo of it.|
