Wednesday...Project and Sketch Day!
It hit me what the problem was, after a suggestion from the publisher I did this sketch so that we have a side view and, we see Thor and Middy face to face. Another given was the five-sided pyramid(which is an alien black hole that is messing with time so all these characters can be together!) had to be featured and of importance somehow.
The finished painting, 17x24 inches. This came out a peach and was a pure joy for me to do. I did it in acrylics on canvas. I used the moon as a circular design image to tie together the elements. It also looked cool. I also added in a mountain peak off to the side on which I placed some other characters. I particularly like the texture of the serpent and the look on Thor's face. I sort of posed for Thor and beefed myself up some. This kind of work is similiar to the concept art I did for THE ANT BULLY three years ago. It's alot of fun to do this kind of work, part of my inspiration comes from Don Maitz as well!
We'll have a break here, at least until Monday as I am off, so if you don't see anything new, don't panic too much. In the meantime, have a look at some of the great work on my wife's blog http://daubdujour.blogspot.com/
I think you'll dig it alot. I do!!! She's the one who got me into this blogistuff!
