Scribblings...

Here I started painting some more brush textures in there
and also killed a lot of the saturated color...
A lot of ways to go here...
STEP 3?
Well, Ive really lost track of specific steps at this point... It did'nt take very long.
I've begun painting in textures and lighting. Just trying to make things fun for myself.
I wanted to try a more "painterly" look for this guy...


Step 2:

Ive painted in some details...




Thought it would be a nice change of pace to perhaps post my steps for this guy...
Just wing it and see what happens. It may do me some good to step back every now and then and actually try to be cognicent of my working process.
Here I've blocked out major color shapes...
With a little room for interpretation as always. I find I correct way to much during the paining process. I guess thats what happens when you paint off of loose sketches...

For some reason, lately, I've had wrestling on the brain.
No doubt inspired by the fantastic work of Thorten Hasenkamm.
This guys paintings are just full of fun designs and kick assy painty goodness!

So this lil' scribble of someone I call Jonny Estrella has gotten the 'ol cogs movin'.
Just having fun with some shapes...
hmmmm...

Always a joy to have an insight into someone's technique. A splendid piece. Thorten would love this I'm sure.

By the by - I've put a link on my blog to yours. Your work is very inspirational.
