Hey guys! Happy Wednesday 👍 We got through half of the whole thing this week.
We are wrapping up 'Rey From Star Wars IX!' today!
Last week's vid worked out all the values, and with this week we're now layering in skin tones and coloring... Step-by-step pics for the project are below, and the video log right below that:
And here is the video log of the whole thing:
Thanks for dropping in, and see you next week!
Hey guys, New project this week!
This one a digital piece of Rey from Star Wars (WOOOOOHOOOOO STAR WARS IX!!!)
So, I'm excited anyway. Can't even wait for Episode IX!
(Happy to discuss the finer points of ANY ridiculously trivial Star Wars piece of minutia with absolutely anyone, for any reason at nearly any time, btw . Want to go really hard-core on any books, comics or cartoons? I'm down too👍)
So here is part one, stay tuned for part 2 next week, same Bat-Time, Same Bat -Channel.
And here below are a few pics of the project, with a look ahead on where the videos will be going :
As ever, thanks for checking out my work, and see you next week!
Hey guys, me again!
Finishing up with Santi here; for parts 4 and 5, it's all about layering in color and highlights now... Check 'em out!
Below are my end of session pics, and the vids are just below that:
Here goes part 4, starting in on color....
And now the last vid for Santi, rounding out color and highlights:
As ever, thank you for watching and for having an interest in my work.
Be well, everyone.
I am continuing on with Santi the Dog here!
Below we have parts 2 and 3, which are basically doing the whole painting in black and white before actually doing any of the color. (For color, stay tuned for parts 4 and 5!) The shots below are end of session shots:
And here is part two!
Part 3 finishes up the grey tones and values stage:
Tune in next time for color layers!
Thanks for coming by.
I have some new work to share with you guys!
We're working with Santi the Dog, for Cameron at Doggystyle over in Noe Valley here in town.
Check out Parts 1 and 2 below and let me know your thoughts?
Here is a shot of the sketch phase and source image:
Thanks for watching you guys! I am curious if there is any interest in online tutorials like these?
Have a great night.
I made some videos for you guys tonight. I am kind of learning as I go on making videos like this; and posted the beginning of this last week. Now we have finished parts 2, 3, and 4 for 'Chief The Dog', which was a commission for Arya as a present to his girlfriend.
Let me know your thoughts!
Below are a few pics I took of the process during some of part 2:
Part 3 works out basic underlying main colors:
And here are a few pics taken during part 3:
And now we add color! And Rock Out with the Waterboys, ha!
And these were taken during part 4, at the end.
Thanks for checking out my processes, you guys!
Peace to all.
It has been a few weeks since I last posted; been super busy with classes, commissions and just keeping up with the demands of life. Check out part one of a commission completed earlier this week, and look out for part 2 next week!
Thanks for watching you guys, and until next time, be well.
Continuing progress on 'The Good the Bad and the Ugly' painting, trying something different with videos instead of pics of my work as I go. Let me know what you think!
Thanks for checking out my work you guys! I am still getting my head around making these videos, so any rough edges in production quality are all mine, and expect steady improvement as I figure out how to use a camera :)
Darth Maul is the coolest Sith ever. (Worked on this one in between my 'Good, Bad and Ugly' character studies in the last few weeks.)
I mean, he gets killed in Phantom Menace, but somehow miraculously survives being cut in half by Obi-Wan Kenobi to return in the Clone Wars cartoons with a pair of robot legs (thanks to Mother Talzin) and serious anger issues. He makes Obi's life hell for two seasons, and even comes back to haunt him as an old man on Tatooine before getting a fantastic send off in Rebels.
He's had so many great appearances in the movies and especially in the cartoons, that I thought I would give him a go. I wanted to convey his relentless patience, sitting out there in the Tatooine desert night just waiting for his probe droids to get back, and went to work.
Painting in Photoshop allows me to produce work much more quickly, reserving the best projects for canvas. It's fantastic to get to put out an idea and have it be rendered in a few hours, instead of a week to two weeks. To be fair, I could spend weeks working out a Photoshop painting too, but it is far easier to fully render something quickly in Photoshop than it is to use traditional media.

I welcome your comments you guys!
As ever, thanks for taking a look at my work.
Finishing up my character studies for 'The Good, The Bad and the Ugly', here is Eli Wallach as Tuco, or 'The Ugly'. Tuco was pretty despicable in the movie, but you still kinda wind up rooting for him in the end just 'cause he tries so hard. Also, he gets regularly hung and then saved by Clint Eastwood, and completely beaten up from time to time, so he just comes up as more nuanced and complex than most bad guys...
This is a pencil sketch, with all values and grey-tones done in Photoshop.
And here below are all the many steps I took to take him there, starting with my main source image for the work. Click the arrow on the right side or any image below to see the slideshow:
