    *UPDATE*class illustration project, post-apocalyptic road warrior painting

    i'm in an illustration class and were doing an assignment that has to do with the concept of master and pet.

    so here are the rough sketches and thumbnails that i have drawn for the painting.

    thumbnails with different compositions and 2 fully rendered sketches of chosen compositions.

    a detail sketch concerning the character's outfit and the characterization of his sidekick. A Pitbull.
    the setting is post-apocalyptic.

    C&C welcome, please.

    whoa, those are awesome!!! but i dont get the "ride on your dog" thing.... he is either very skinny or the dog is very strong...

    If water was Vodka and I was a duck, I'd sink to the bottom and never come up. But water's not Vodka and I'm not a duck. So hand me a bottle and shut the fuck up.

    Haha, it's kind of a joke.
    Think of it as a mutant pit bull.

    I'm still curious about which way I should go with the painting.
    I plan on using oil paints.

    Which one are you going to be painting?

    I think if you're going for the mutant pit bull idea, try to make the pit bull look more.... mutated? Huge vieny muscles or something. Giant fangs. Pair of woman's legs (with stockings) coming out of its face. Stuff like that.

    P.S. Why does everyone dress like the 80's after the apocalypse?

    Because those were the days dude. Mad max, bladerunner, etc.

    LOL woman's legs out of his face?
    yeah i was going to give him an unusual color, maybe glowing eyes, and definitley larger canine teeth. not like a sabertooh or warthog, but somewhat large. Pitbulls are known for their massive jawlines, which can rip through basketballs, tires and even human flesh like butter.

    despite the notoriety of these dogs, i thought it suited the character most.

    as for the composition choice, i was thinking of going with the one where he is like roping down and firing a few rounds. while the dog is charging.

    this is going ot be done in oil paints on gesso primed plywood.

    With the death of civilization, so died fashion... which then devolved into the 80's.

    Well this should be fun! For clarification, the painting you plan on doing is second from the bottom of the sketches, right?

    The only thing about that piece is that his legs seem to blend into the dog. And the dog just appears to be kind of chillin out, not really attacking per say.

    Please clarify.

    P.S. Maybe the stockings on the legs were too much?

    yeah, i'm aware of that. i'll make sure to fix that with the painting.
    i'm gonna be using a tall format piece of plywood 12x24 which should enhance the composition of him roping down.

    i'm gonna work on the dog a little more. pitbulls have a very distinct physical muslce build.

    thanks dude, oil paint is a great medium. personally i prefer it over any other paint, especially acrylics. because it allows lots of freedom and plenty of time to work with. since it dries incredibly slow, because it's oil.

    also it blends colors beautifully with the right strokes. lol, this is actually my 3rd oil painting and i'm quite surprised myself that i've quckly learned how to use it.

    but through this painting i'm learning alot.

    painting on wood is so much better than canvas. because canvas has that crappy rough texture.

    Now THAT is one mutated dog thing! I love this one!

    Of course, the inherent downside of any traditional medium is that it cannot really be edited. The one thing that gets me about this piece is that the dog is facing exactly at us, and the guy is not. I mean, even if he was a little bit pointed away from us, that would be one thing, but as it stands he doesn't even look like he is a part of the same piece .

    oh, yeah, i thought the dog did stand out quite a bit, i think i'll do soemthing to fix that a little. maybe blend the dog into the flames.

    i'll keep in mind about compositions like this in later works.
