Meg Dullea, now Meg Stempel has been a dear friend of mine since the age of 4 or so. For her wedding I wanted to make a portrait of her and her husband Andrew. This is a super rough partial portrait I started before the wedding photos were released. Can’t wait to get started on the couple!
In one of my continuing studies classes we had an idea of an environment in a bus stop that would create heating. There would be these units hanging from the ceiling and when you interact with them they start to glow and heat up. It is meant to encourage stranger interaction as a way to keep warm at the bus stop.
Now all I can think of are two messed up blue balls. Anyway more work to be done.
I started a portrait drawing then painted the face. Felix tweaked it a bit and added the background. Fun collaboration.
At first I really thought I nailed the colors in the face, then I zoomed out and was mildly disappointed. Trust me get down in there and there are loads of color layers happening! Work darker next time Bliss! Listen to Felix!
The sketchdaily theme for today was 28 Days Later or zombies or concrete. I picked concrete and did a study of some weeping Angels from Doctor Who. I used some new brushes trying to get that concrete feel. These are the brushes Felix loves to use that I just can’t get a handle on. Coulda worked longer on it but today is cleaning day and I am actually going to clean instead of procrastinate.
In addition Illustration Friday’s theme was reflect, soooo I reflected the image for a sneaky double post. Yes the lighting doesn’t make any sense but you know neither does the Doctor.
Snowy day. Boyfriend at work. Listening to the radio and trying to practice after a long absence. Reference.
