Future: Week 2 Progress: Andrew


man_in_a_golden_helmet This week was all about gathering reference. I thought I’d share some.

This painting, “The Man with the Golden Helmet” has to be listed as my first bit of reference. It was very much on my mind as I thought of the story and (perhaps strangely) influenced the creation of the Clock-Owl idea. When I paint the portrait of the adult version of our protagonist I’ll be trying to get as close to this feeling as my limited skills allow.

The spread below is a collection of assorted reference. A friend and her daughter kindly agreed to pose for the figures. On the far right is a quick chop together of their pictures to give me something to look at as I start my drawings.
