So I've been busy painting. Took the summer model painting minimester again. What is so amazing about it is, it's 2 weeks from 8am-5pm. Forces me to paint, and experiment, and most of all, stay mildly focused. If anything it keeps me away from marathoning Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Show is far too addictive. Here is what we have thus far, 4 very unproductive days in:
First is a WORK IN PROGRESS. Took my one sketch-a-day and adapted it to oils. That sketch a day can be found here. http://mpuncekar.blogspot.com/2009/01/sketch-day-004.html
Still has a ways to go, but the camera gets what I want, that is for sure. Going to have to push it to get the result there, and improve upon it as well. Really fun one to do, second one I started.
Second one here was kind of a warm-up for oils. Last thing I did with them was that disaster of a comicbook cover. This one is nice and simple, Took very little time and was incredibly fun to paint. No big story here, just a living corpse. Doesn't eat people or anything like a zombie, just looks snazzy, smokes a lot, and tends to be not dead.
So, this is the first of my updates for this class, hoping to pick up the pace a bit as I just can't get into it a hundred percent due to sleeping problems. I'm on the go to bed at 5-6am schedule, and I need to get back on something more normal, but the body isn't listening. This is totally making me like oils right now though. I must say, if you have to mix colors... oils is the way to go. Both of these are on 22x30 canvas boards courtesy of my lovely girlfriend, Rachel.
Critiques and comments more than welcome.
