    It has been almost a year, what a slacker I am. Here are some quick oil studies
    There is a lot of experimentation going on wwith these with types of surface, paint application and color. Most are 12x16 to 16x20. the last three value studies were on an 18x24 canvas board done by wiping out with a brush or paper towel with a little mineral spirits and no paint.

    I should check my own threads more often or hook up the email notification. The last batch of color paintings were one to two hours

    It seems you might not update TOO often, DPaint, ha, but I'm subscribing in the hopes that you put some more stuff up soon. Good work, man.

    These are my preliminaries and thumbs for the final digital paintg which is here

    I chose the chapter of the book called Champion and Chief.Unfortunately Dejah Thoris is nothing more than something to save in the first book. I thought about having her in a fighting stance (early thumbs) but changed back to the description.
    The process is, sketches out of my head and thumbs first. Then I use a mirror to refine them and shoot reference for a more accurate pose. In the case of the thark head I made a little 2 inch clay model of the head for reference. The background is from my ref and a max model I built to help with my visualization. I then scan the pencils and combine them in layers in PS and then move things and change them as I refine them and problems crop up that forces me to deviate from the initial thumbs.

    Nice! Love the sketches and process description. The thark head studies are great...tharks are such a bitch to design to Burrough's description but still make cool.

    What would Caravaggio do?

    Wow, your sketches have so much life to them. Pretty amazing.

    I tried message you but I'm a noob so i cant

    Your a great artist and It would be awesome if we could be friends, I think it would really help to work my ass off and grow to a level of artist such as yourself. I'm really getting serious about my art and it would mean a lot if you would give a critique every here and there. I'm leaving town today but I'll be drawing in my sketch book every day so look out for some updates in a about a week.
