Once again, another weekend, another convention, and another chalk art mural. This time it was the Otakon in Baltimore, an Anime/Manga/Japanese Culture convention that is one of the craziest things I have been to.
This was my second year making a chalk mural for the show, and this time it was a recreation of the program cover with original artwork by Chamba of Udon Entertainment. Over the course of 26 hours I finished this 9 foot wide by 12 foot tall mural and rubbed my fingers raw. But at the end of the show we were able to stand it up and I got final photos that made it all worth it.
Check out three shots of the progress here, and you can find more progress and convention shows on the Otakon 2009 Chalk art Mural post at my website.
Enjoy the photos and let me know what you think as comments are always welcome.
I work on the sketch in my dining room, it fills the floor from wall to wall.
Nearing the end of day two and the color is progressing nicely.
We stand the completed mural up at the end of the show and I am able to get a great final photo with me in it to reference scale.
I bet you draw one hell of a Hop Scotch grid.
Really cool. Im not much of an anime person but I recognize the skill for sure. Love that it is so large too.
Really great skin-tone on that girl and a lot of really good use of white in that image. I actually think that the stylization is very unique and cool. I can definitely tell the artist is not asian (not in a bad way, just in keeping yourself stylistically unique while maintaining a position in their realm and looking good- it's hard to do).
Anyway all the value is very nice and it's easy to read. Great job.
Here's my awesome, pro website.

Nice stuff. I was wondering if sometime you use items you could find in you support, like pipe, sewer holes, crack on wall or stuff like that.
Actually, I am starting to build up some good callus on two of the three I normally use, so this time around the end results aren't too bad.
