Recently, I was asked to do a commission that was Space-y.
The result was FATASTIC...ad you can read about it HERE.....
I had such fun painting a robot again...that I returned to it......and created another one!
Here is the process I went trhough creating this brand new painting!
I hope you enjoy this:
|This was my original photoshop/sketch illustration.|
(I did this a last year.....but never did the actual painting.)
I felt like I could improve this simple illustration by incorporating the design techniques I used in my 'Sign of the Times' series........and came up with this NEW AND IMPROVED drawing:
|As you can see....I added a bunch of other details to it!|
As you can see - sometimes waiting to finish something can provide superior results. I had fun creating the space themed luggage tags, the blueprint of a rocket, the coaster, and the post card!!
|Step one was drawing and then blocking in......|
|The blocking in is the WORST PART!!|
|When it gets to this stage - it begins to get FUN!|
|Adding the line work helped me flesh out the details on Mr Robot!|
|The folds and washes and tape and such.......LOVE doing this part!!|
I could not be happier with it. It has a nice colour scheme with peaches and oranges and blues - that is something that is not my 'usual' palette.

ALSO.....I made a print from this piece.
EXCITING? OH YES!!!!
Here is what that looks like (unframed):
|Yes...it looks better in person!|
