Red Head

Wednesday, March 28, 2007

Experimenting with paint: I'm at the end of a freelance deadline and for some reason, my head started hurting today. I have been on the computer a lot, inking and this has never happened before. I took a painting break and finished this one. I have been working back and forth with paint layers and gloss layers. Nothing beats the fun of pushing real tools around.

If something looks familiar, I did steal the pose of the photo of the real liger at the bottom. I tried to paint it, but the head on pose looked awful; so I repainted over the face by using my notes from my sketchbook and made it into a 3/4 head portrait.

Love the simplicity of design in this one, KimZam. You're saying very much with very little! Nobody draws and paints the big cats like you.
