    Returned to this picture...from 2009. Redid the background. It's still not done, but it's nice to return to it

    Working on Fawn and Dag now. Here are some reference shots I have for skin colours, facial features, etc.

    Notes: Their bodies are going to have a sharp drop off in saturation, detail clarity, and intensity below the waterline, but I want to work out the major planes first, and get the major body shadows in place before I start dropping in the water over the bodies.

    This ALSO explains the lack of Dag's junk. In my original pose references for Dag (part Poser, part mag photos of ripped dudes) I didn't have the genitalia roughed in AND because it was going to be below the waterline, I figured I probably wouldn't worry about it. But everybody keeps frickin' commenting on it. Man, you leave the genitalia of somebody or remove the nipples and you never hear the end of it. (Said self-deprecatingly.)

    I've been working background to foreground, so that'll screw up the perspective a little since currently the background is at a higher detailed level than the foreground. In the final piece, the background details will be dropped back and foreground made sharper, etc.

    This is an illustration of a scene from the second Sharing Knife. The character Dag doesn't have a left hand--amputated years ago. He's also considerably older than Fawn, who is only 19 in the first book.

    They're considerably brighter than at first, which gives a weird floating look. I'm sure when the water is place over their bodies it won't look so surreal and the shadows will hide his lack of junk.

    @MeBlackSpot: Yep, I plan on dropping off the color a LOT in the water. Also, this is sort of the mid-range. Gotta work up my shadows and then my highlights.

    I need to do a massive sketchbook dump. So behind the times. I might do these in batches. Basically, I've been going to the local science museum and arboretum here and sketching on weekends. The science museum has a learning center where they will gladly get out specimens for you. Here's some of my sketch adventures.

    1- Dog skull 2- Arboretum steps 3- Lounge at Gibraltar Point Artscape Center 4 and 5 - Medusa bust by Bernini at Legion of Honor 6- The Music Concourse pavilion/amphitheatre
