Not Everyone Likes Langoustine

Three more hours and not much to show for it. My sense of scale is off and I don't think I'll be able to portray the expression the way I want to. But it's good practice and maybe a fun portrait. We'll see when it's finished.

Native American Amies

Starting to look Native American. It looks better on paper (11"x14"). Still a lot left to do. I did at least three hours since the last post.

Graffiti Truck Two - Take Three

Close Up of Toby and Langoustine - unfinished

Although the first drawing was fun, I was not able to capture the expression because of the absorbent paper and small size, neither of which afford much in the way of fine detail.  This is a much larger piece of paper so the drawing will take longer but I am hoping to represent the micro-expressions that are present in the original.

Norwegian Langoustine with Toby Amies

Final above.
Toby listening to music on his new arthropod (thank you Michael Berkman).

Unfinished. More on the subject here.

Take Two on Truck Two

Still a ways to go.

Graffiti Truck - still way unfinished

The background will make a big difference.

Graffiti Truck - way unfinished

This already represents over 12 hours of work (or a season and a half of Netflixed Battlestar Galactica). Not sure why it's so time intensive! It's on a 14x10 piece of paper so it's bigger than usual and I've never tackled graffiti before.

It's for Christopher.
