A sunny field and some dramatic clouds – a perfect day to spend in the Eastern Townships!
This was one of the last sketches that I managed to complete during my lunch break at work. After this one, they all got some re-tooling on my computer at home. And not a moment too soon! The monitors at my office are not very well-calibrated (we’re animators, not graphic designers, after all!), so it was a bit of a shock to bring this piece home and realize I can see a lot more of the underpainting than I realized – or that the horizon line is a little crooked!
Ah, but that water… now THAT I count as a success!
AND if you’re camping at Mont Tremblant, and you’d like to score this view for yourself, just book Huttopia (Ready-to-Camp) site #74! If you don’t mind a short-but-steep hill, you can scramble down a little private path to the water’s edge, and then it’s just you and the lake! I must have taken a hundred pictures from that spot in al kinds of weather conditions, so expect to see more Mont Tremblant images in future!
Study of a George Romney portrait of Lady Emma Hamilton, because I love “That Hamilton Woman”, and we Emmas need to stick together.
Also, if I could just find that One. PERFECT. Brush. these digital studies would go a lot faster…
Well, this gal has had quite the makeover! You may remember her as the painting that refused to cooperate, but I just didn’t want to let her go. After all, I’d put so much work into her! So when I went back to it, I decided to change up a few things, colour-wise. I think she looks better this way (also, she looks meaner, which is not a bad thing).
Her bio reads thusly: “Young co-ed superhero whose superhero power is the ability to have an unbelievably large circle of friends, admirers, and hangers-on, and this despite the fact that she’s never been particularly nice to anyone. Like, EVER. Also, no one is exactly sure where she lives.”
Also available in my Society6 shop!
I decided to stop making things harder for myself, and finally give in to the siren call of Photoshop. I’ve been playing around with flat colour and cleaner graphics, and I’m digging it!
Allow me to introduce you all to Violet, whose superpowers include (but are not limited to) being able to balance a pre-med program, helping out in her family’s corner store on the week-ends, and attending any record listening party she can.
Prints, etc. are available on Society6!
