Here’s a little watercolour study of Kurt Angle done in the spirit of Turner. This one is FINISHED, I think. It’s teeny tiny.
But it turns out he’s really hard to draw. Here are some frustrated little studies. I will understand the shape of your head Kurt, one day.
Now here are a couple that have been nearly finished for a long time. (See my current grey blog entry for more on my nervous twitchy issues around finishing stuff.) These are still not finished, but on a screen that has less meaning. One is a softer more diffuse supernatural Randy Orton goat man (he needs more electricity though).
You might have noticed that I draw Randy Orton a lot. This would be difficult to deny.
One’s a slightly more rugged fluorescent Randy Orton goat man. I used a lot of white lines on him.
I was trying to incorporate some zeitgeisty graphical lighting inflections from game screenshots. Spell effects from RPGs and things. It seemed a wholesome way to attempt to be zeitgeisty.
Those are the at the spookier end of my idiom I reckon. Very dense and peculiar layering of materials going on here.
It’s nice to do two of something. It allows you to explore subtly divergent variations on an atmosphere.
I’ve got nothing very cartoony this week. It’s a shame. It’s one of the most challenging things to do well. Soon though. Soon it will come together.
