There's a snake in my boots...Part 3

Nearly there!

This was the last assignment working on this painting, so technically I should be finished...but...there are still some techniques to be covered in the final two lessons so I'll come back to this one last time to make those improvements and implement any tweaks from Ryan Wood's video feedback.

This is the third work in progress version of this painting.  Here's Part 1 and Part 2.

Two more assignments to go!  I'm really going to miss such useful feedback every week.

Our little hero...Part 2

Here's a colour sketch of this previous greyscale painting.

I tried out a few new techniques for this one and tried to be a bit more adventurous with the colour.  I also held back on rendering the details too much - always a challenge!

Velociraptowl Cartooned...

Just trying something a little different from my usual style, this time using the linework to add to the image rather than hide it away under the rendering.

This is actually a twist on a creature I previously designed, the Velociraptowl.

There's a snake in my boots...Part 2

After a useful critique from Ryan Wood, I made some changes and added colour for the week 4 assignment.

The original greyscale (and more smiley) sketch can be found in this previous post.

For future assignments this image will be polished a bit more, so keep an eye out for it.

Our little hero...

I have a new love - textures!  I've always seen them as a bit of a gimmicky shortcut, but after learning how to use them properly a whole bunch of new possibilities awaits.

If I ever have a daughter to call my own, I hope she's a little trooper like this.  :)

Week 3 of Painting in Painter with Ryan Wood.  Look out for a coloured version in the near future.

 As usual, coments and critique welcome.
