I hope you are enjoying the end of summer. I am looking forward to the fall!
Here, in the studio, I have been pretty productive. I finished up the panels for Atalanta's Race so now I have just a few finishing touches and it's done! Here's the last sequence of panels:
I am definitely planning on continuing this story later on but for now I think it's a good representation of the style of art and pacing I am going for. I will post the final piece next week so be sure to check back! For now I am off to the next sequence which will be a chase scene from "The Phantom of the Opera". This one will give me a lot of opportunity to play with space and pacing as well as a chance to draw humans instead of sock monkeys and I have more fun with that! Here is a sketch of the sequence, originally designed as a comic:
I am going to take these sketches and expand on them, just like I did with Atalanta's Race. I'm excited to work with this subject and with this particular environment. Here's a link to info about Garnier's Opera house in Paris:
Plus, I love opera. Win, win.
I've also been working on color and playing with familiar characters. So far I've been using Disney characters but I decided my next image will be of The Lady Amalthea from The Last Unicorn, one of my favorite books and films. here's a link to the wikipedia page for it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Last_Unicorn_(film)
Here's what I've done this week:
Today I am working on the image of Briar Rose/Aurora from Disney's Sleeping Beauty. I'm happy with how it's coming along. I'm looking forward to coloring her because I like her gray and beige, communist-like color scheme. You will have to check back here next week to see what I mean!
I'm anxious to get started so I am going to close this post. Here is an image of the Red Bull from the Last Unicorn. You should watch The Last Unicorn today, I think.
Thanks for the visit, come back next week!
