Aw, Honey...Hush.

JAMES - Again with the 8x10, i'm beginning to like this size. It's easier to finish a whole piece in one sitting, stay loose, y'know. Reference came from a great source for romantic illustrations: porn. In the sketchbook page, i marked the time of that frame of the movie. For a split second, a very tender moment, until i exploit it with violence. The ol' sex & violence routine....

No lightbox on this one - that probably also helped speed up the time. #3 brush all the way, except for a nib for the fishnets and marker for the lettering (which i could have done better). "black star" ink, FW Red ink, and blue and yellow Tombo markers. The sketchbook is just pen and marker.

Wow, i really like this one. Really bold, and great use of color. I really like the shadows that are being casted. I smell another silkscreen...you gotta start posting stuff that i can actually critique, 'cause so far it's all been too good! By the way, i'm in my school library right now and i look like a perv looking at this drawing...

yeah, without the shadows, it doesn't really work (well, besides the obvious right hand shadow). i was hoping that it wouldn't give off a 'pervy' vibe, more like romance, noir, or erotica.

and once i get my new camera (should come on wednesday) i'll take pictures of the stuff i do in class, since they're too big to scan. and you'll have a field day critiquing that, cuz i'm still a very inexperienced painter.
