Poot Post

Can't put up as much stuff as I'd hoped. But HERE'S what I can offer:

One of my big assignments for clothed figure class is to draw/paint a character from the past, present, or future. I started with a few thumbnails, and a classmate and I ran off to take reference photos from there. I was pretty excited to dress up in the civil war uniform actually, because one of my favorite indie comics is "Rose and Isabel" by story guru Ted Mathot. I'd like to think I was channeling a bit of Rose then.

Despite the fun w/ the soldier and caveman, I think I'm gonna go with the reclining dress pose, using oil paint on illustration board. The lighting and folds in the drapery are clearest in that photo. Progress so far: (in the 3rd one, I painted digitally over the photo of the painting)

Also, here's the work in prog of my pops:

and some in-class drawings, ranging from 5 minutes to several-hours-long poses:

I like the one of the soldier crouching down, and the reclining pose. The graphic design of that one is very beautiful. The last one is beautiful too :)

Tina - you always love the reclining Rosie, don't you.

Chris - Thanks a lot! I loved the whole process of this, w/ the dressing up then picking one of them (too many choices sometimes sucks :P )

Arthur - hm i don't know. I just saw him stumbling down the street outside yelling profanities at tourists, and figured I could use him. :D

Allen - thanks a lot! I liked those a lot two in terms of storytelling, but unfortunately the lighting wasn't very clear on some of the folds.

Hanna Bananna - Thankie thankie!!
