Ok, it’s already week 3 and I’m a bit struggled as usual. (Anyone has posted week 3 stuff? ) Anyway, I somehow managed to be able to show these…
Hey hey hey… It’s WURMMMMMM Albert. Not sure what that was about, but this is about my progress thus far. So let’s get to it, shall we? Basically I started with the skeleton of my “deep south” devil figure. I have opted for him to be seated, as if contemplating his destiny or some horse shit like that. I have created a trident that he will be holding. We shall see how this goes. My wife said, “you always do something mean…” and I corrected her in saying “not mean, just evil. Evil imagery is kinda my thang” heh heh. Can’t help what comes out, right?
Man oh man! Week 2 snuck up on me! I have not gotten very far on this at all, but the important part is that I do have progress to show and I’m not skipping days like some people **coughandrewcough**, ahem, excuse me, allergy season.
I started by trying to figure out what the Mexican Sheriff was going to look like…I’m not overly thrilled with any of the drawings I have done (seen below are the laughable “best” two thus far). I need to try and get back into this soon before I fall behind. I should just draw Danny Trejo instead and call it a day :)
I felt it was time to introduce a villain. With our word this month being South I thought an officer from the Confederate Army was fitting. But the thumbnails just weren’t flowing well. They all felt static. I was having trouble finding something to get excited about. So, I decided to get a fresh start in Photoshop and begin again the way I would if it was something that had to be done in a hurry. Black and white, pushing shapes around until something starts to feel right. The image below on the left is the first thing to have that “right” feeling so I started to refine from there. I liked how the brim of his hat hid his face, making him more mysterious but with the front of his uniform so obscured by his right arm I felt it would be smarter to switch to a more recognizably civil war era hat.
I’m so glad that medieval is over! Now it’s South! South….southern…southern food… food?! Hmmm.. food sounds good. I love food. Well let’s see if I can do something about it.
