The Latest!

Here it is! No title yet. I finished it just about 30 minutes ago! Still a little tonal tweaking to do, but I was too excited to wait on posting it! It was originally meant to be a companion piece for Jessi Lively, however it took on its own life and color scheme as I worked on it, and while this was upsetting at first, I am very happy with the finished results. I believe I will still hang the two pieces together, but now they will both have to stand more for themselves, this is really a good things, diptychs are hard to sell.

The figure is all colored pencil, the background is a combination of washes and stenciling in acrylic and gouache, the patterning in the top right corner is this crazy holographic metallic paper, here it looks yellow, often it looks green, I like it best when it looks hot pink, and sometime it's even purple. The background needed something ballsy, the washes and stencils were too "wallpaper" the shiny pink paper was just the ticket. I'm really happy with the finished background because all the first choices ended up being the right choices. That is always so pleasing.
