    Book Jacket art: the face part 1

    Every artist will hit a brick wall once in a while while painting a face, even Frank Frazetta while painting his Egyption Queen. Here was one of my own struggles.

    Stage one: The brief required a tough, bald, but beautiful heroine. A tricky thing to get right. At this stage she looked too puddy-like as I worked on giving her a frown.

    stage 2

    Stage 2.
    I darken the ridge between the brows to indicate a softer curve and add some highlights. But it's still not right!

    stage 3

    At this point I think I've lost my mojo, nothing seems to be going right. I open my original colour rough, thumb through some reference and start painting again. Now she looks too greasy and hard, She's not beautiful enough. I decide to take a break from it and work on something else for a while.

    Stage 4: Bringing Sexy Back.

    I come back with a fresh eye, and, bingo! I see all the problems that need solving; her face was too gaunt, there was too much harsh highlight and shadow. Nothing was subtle.

    I get to work and broaden the face, reshape the head, put some backlight in the shadows, soften everything. Now she's tough, and beautiful. That was a rough ride for while.

    Hi Warry,

    Thanks for your order. Are you Loreau from France? If so your order went through and I can see your promo code has been sent now ( there is sometimes a delay with Paypal, pending order etc, but it always comes through and I am always contactable if you need help with an order). Thanks again and enjoy the movies!
    Best regards,

    If you are not Loreau then please read these instructions:

    You only need to enter 'robot promo' in the note box after you click checkout for this offer, it's not a code, just a note, so don't worry we have your order pending. Once you process payment and it clears through Paypal/pjartworks you will be able to download Carnival 3000AD and a unique download link and code will follow for the free robot movies.
    Basically; the system automates and codes kick in, once Paypal funds clear.

    Hi Warry,

    Glad you are enjoying the movies.

    Good question, what to watch first. There is a lot of info on my custom pallettes at the beginning of the Robot movies but I don't think it matters in which order you watch the movies as you will glean a lot of different kinds of knowledge along the way.

    More than likely you will not be making any written notes on the first view anyhow, just mental ones, the best way to learn I think. You can then simply go back to the pallete movie section and follow step by step when you set up your own palette later. The magic of movies.

    So my advice is to sit back and enjoy the movies for the entertainment value then refer to the movies for technical advice when you need to.

    Thanks for your feedback and good luck with your art.
    Best wishes,
    Patrick.

    Thanks Gustavo, I try to keep as close to traditional methods as possible, usually painting on only one or very few layers.
    Best regards,
    Patrick.
    ps. nice art yourself, Gustavo
