Becky’s working on inks for the screenprint poster project; here’s what she has to say about that:
I’m inking the image to size (18 X 24 inches). After I finished the pencils I light-boxed it onto watercolor paper. I like to ink on watercolor paper for a little texture, I use really thin watercolor paper when I’m inking, it lightboxes easier. I’m inking it with a Winsor and Newton series 7 brush and Kuretake Black Ink 60. I’m working on it at Helio Cafe in LA and I have a tiny gallery show there that you can see in the photo.
I think we’re all more than a bit shaken up over Robin Williams’s death. I myself am struggling a bit to figure out how exactly to feel about it. It’s not just the fact that such a beloved figure is gone, but how it reveals how complicated and messy people’s lives can be without us ever knowing.
So to you, my friends, thank you for living. It’s not easy. Thank you for trying.
Dunno if anyone’s interested in these, but this was my latest assignment for CGMA’s Art of Color and Light class- this past week focused on how light interacts with different materials.
It’d be cool to try some different skin tones, I just used my own pasty hand for reference. Maybe even an alien species with non-red blood, so the occlusion shadow glows a different color where light passes through? Would it be purple for Namekians and green for Vulcans? (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:・ﾟ✧ possibilities
Also, the iridescent pearl wasn’t a requirement, but I enjoy Sailor Moon and suffering. If anyone’s got pointers on iridescence, I am all ears over here, because I clawed my way through that one screaming
