That's right, the title don't lie! It took a while for me to get back to this painting what with Christmas, illness and the on-going battle with the powers of darkness, but I finally got the Nazi bitch done. I was originally going to do a black spatter over the red background, but as i started blocking in the black I decided I liked that look. It seems to be a bit reminnicent of 70's posters for schlock B-movies. Which seems perfect as it's theme has obvious connection to Nazi-Exploitation vehicles like "Ilsa, She Wolf of the SS." Anyway, enjoy. I am not sure what painting will be up next as I don't have a shoot in the cue...so we shall all be surprised...
So It's been a super busy last few weeks, what with the holidays and blah blah blah...so anyway, I finally got around to adding the first round of color into the painting..in the process I screwed up the suspenders so one step backward there, oh well. Other then that it is going pretty smoothly..dig
The next step in this painting is putting in the blacks, I do this in every painting, but in this one especially I am really developing it heavily before I move into color, probably because it just seemed natural as there are so many blacks/darks in the final.
Partly inspired by the Karl Ruprecht Kroenen character in the Hell Boy comics/film, this pinup is a bit darker. Part human, part machine; but all evil....but sexy evil.
That being said, the lighting in the photo is a bit off and as a result the lights and whites are a bit washed out...so I will have to retake the photo before it gets posted in the gallery section. Anyway, here it is for now...gaze upon her golden splendor haha
The title says it all basically, the main colors on the horse are blocked in with more subtle values in the figure; neither are finished. I'm still not sure what colors the background and circle will be, once I'm done with the for-ground figures hopefully it will speak to me.
So here is the finished carousel pin-up sketch. I changed a few things , shape of the bra, leg position, mostly though it was a matter of refining and completing the rendering of the sketch. With any luck I will start adding color tomorrow.
So here is the beginning sketch for my next painting, a bit of a fantasy piece a lingerie-clad girl riding a carousel horse. The sketch is about half finished. I have to rework some of the angles in the horse as the perspective is a bit off. The whole image is a bit distorted here as I took the photo of it at rather a steep angle. Well that is all for now, I hope to have the sketch done in the next day or two. Stay tuned.
Ok, I'm going to try to get better at blogging again, got off track for a while with working on and sending out promo mailers to publishers, anywho, here is the sketch for my next painting. Dig
