I got a little further on my Silver Surfer image today. Laying down all the base reflective surfaces in his chrome, with the clearing work to come. I’m happy with it, but I actually had someone ask me about the color swirl he was looking at.
“It’s a blackhole’s event horizon.”, I answered.
Then ended up watching them Google it as they tried to argue with me. I just put my earphones back on.
Okay… this is my third drawing of the actress who played GoGo Yubati in “Kill Bill”. I need to get her out of my system. She’s like Amy Winehouse that way, lol.
When I draw her, I try not to make her appear demure. Too much of that going on among artist as is. It gets attention, but then so does a stick figure with circles for boobs. You never know what people are REALLY into when you sex it up.
My style causes me trouble occasionally. Like when I mix genres.
I started this out in the usual way, but I knew that I would ink over a lot of it. No biggie.
However, when I started to do so, I realized that the tones weren’t dark enough. I had to go back and deepen it.
So it worked out, but not the way I wanted. There’s a lesson here.
Do your homework.
