Fan Art: work in progress

I haven't posted one of these in ages:



Initial sketch--in charcoal--on the canvas.



Painting over the sketch with burnt sienna oil paint.
(Then I wait overnight for it to dry.)



Blocking in--this means I cover ever part of the canvas with paint. Broad strokes only, pretty much, just to cover the canvas and get an idea of the colors and composition.



More blocking in.







End of blocking in. At this point, I've probably put in maybe six hours of painting. I'd guess I have about 34 more hours left before it's done. More to come...

I think Sveta prefers the caricatures done by that Russian... do you know which ones I mean?
You may want to look into getting that artist to do your logo.

Re: Fan Art: work in progress

That is remarkable! . As one who lost out completely in the artistic department, I admire yours' and Mel's work very much.
