Dig. This customer wanted a pinup of his wife with a grill as a logo for his BBQ business/team called "Meat Candy". The digital painting was then printed on aluminum as a sign for their grill. They then proceeded to win first place in the first BBQ contest they brought her to. Pretty rad.
Finally all done...the Olympics as well as working on the SEO of this site as well as some other online related work caused a bit of a slow down for this one; but I am pretty happy with the results. So up next is a Soviet military themed pinup, stay tuned.
Well waddya know!? I beet my own estimate for when this part of the sketch would be complete, take that clock! Anywho, the blacks and greys are about where I want them to be before I start the painting and the color. I am not going to build up the background in grey-scale but rather jump right in with the colors. Enjoy! now time to go watch some Olympics.
...But come to think about it, aren't all chaps assless?...otherwise they're just called "pants"...hmm Anyway, here it is, the fist stage of the sketch, at this point it's all graphite in the H's; all harder than 4H actually. So from here I will start deepening the blacks and flushing out the values more fully. With any luck the next stage may even be posted by Monday, so stay tuned!
