Knights of Time fanart WIP

A bit of fan art for a good friend who bought a broke-ass artist a t-shirt. More to come on this soon.

Moving Day

Behold! The above image is typical of the workstations that those of us at my j-o-b are getting as part of our scheduled move to our new digs this weekend. To put it in context, we're up on the 7th floor with a tremendous view of the city. Each of our cubicles are up against a wall of windows that look out onto an open patio, stories over the historic part of town, with the big city in the distance.

Of course, you'd never know this looking at the picture. You'd almost think they actually don't want us to enjoy the view they spent gobs of cash to get. As for me, I'm planning a Shawshank style digging-of-a-hole in the cubicle wall from underneath a huge Rita Hayworth poster with a teeny tiny pick-ax. It may be a few years, but that's all it takes, really.

Pressure, and time....That and a big goddamn poster.

Comic WIP

Couple of test pages for a webcomic I hope to launch very very soon. Just seeing what I can do in a limited amout of production time.

Vera Milla

Okay, forget everything you may have heard about not doing the painterly thing again. Apparently, I suck at such predictions.

I've been in desperate need of a new desktop for quite some time now, one starring my newest spy lady character. Yes, I know she looks like the esurance chick, but I hope I've at least made Vera not as annoying as she is.

Had to assemble quite a few reference images for this one. First off was the pose, which I got from this lovely photo by :iconcatphrodite: Then I dug up some head shots of Milla Jojovich, plus a frame from some old concert footage of Lady Miss Kier of Deee-Lite for the hair. Finding decent reference for her shiney leather catsuit was strangely very hard. I would've though there'd be an abundance of suitable images now that we're living in the future and stuff. Had to dig up some stills of the four chick jewel thieves from Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back. Even then, I don't think I followed it too closely. I think I made Vera a bit more diffuse, just because I likes the slightly grainy textute I was getting with the dodge/burn tool.

May update this one later. Want to design a sidekick for her. Got something in mind, so hopefully it'll be up soon.

The Negotiator

Been awhile since I posted here, been spending too much time at deviantArt, so I thought I'd shared the love this time.

This one came to me in a dream. Popped into my head for an instant, then I told a friend about it, who finally clued me in to the fact that it would probably make a decent next project. Had to fudge the scale of the saber handle a bit in order to get it in the frame and still have room to show some of the blades.

As good a job as Ewan did in the prequels, Sir Alec is the definitive Obi-Wan, even if he had his misgivings about the ensuing fandom that sprung up as a result of Star Wars.

Sir Alec has always been one of my favorite actors. He did a near perfect Hitler in the made for TV film 'Hitler:The Last Ten Days." I even read someplace that he considered the Hitler role to be his favorite of his own performances. He also did a turn as Jacob Marley in "A Christmas Carol" and, of course, his acclaimed appearance in "Bridge On The River Kwai."

Sometimes I try to imagine what the prequels would've been like if they could've somehow cloned a young Alec for the role. THAT would've been sweet methinks. It almost would've redeemed George for the whole Jar-Jar debacle...almost.

It's late. I collapse now...*thud*

For those who might be wondering, I've been posting on deviantArt lately. Really liking it there. Still wanna post here, but it might just be highlights from what I put up there, at least for awhile. I like have a couple of different places for my art, each for different audiences, though I'd have to change/delete a few of the pics on here to make that premise work. ^^;

The link is down to the right, where it says "Lotsa Lotsa Links", silly!
