The Chase...

Ok, here's a better view of my sketch along with some of the references I used. What really inspired me this time was the middle reference. The shot of her horses face.




I'm hoping to have a painting of this completed before we leave for GenCon.

The Chase... Sketch

Earlier in the week I was watching 'Fellowship of the Ring', it seems like that movie is always inspiring me in some way.



I need to scour the web or rewatch that sequence to see if I can get a glimpse of her trousers, and the details of the saddle & bridle.

I'm pretty pleased with the sketch... which means I should probably paint it. Hopefully I'll have it done before GenCon.

New Personal Work


This little fairy was inspired by a sketchbook drawing I did the week before last.



Yesterday all I did was work on the background. I had an idea of what I wanted, I worked at it, and worked at it, but by the end of the day it was crap. I really didn’t want to have to scrap all of the work I had already put into the pencils. Since I had used liquid mask to cover the figure, I thought… Gesso! I guess it was the perfect opportunity to try something I hadn’t done before… and I absolutely LOVE the way this turned out. Yay for happy mistakes. =) After this little experiment you can bet I'll be doing more of this.
