More exploration

The last wasn't doing it for me...not enough drama.  Not sure this is where it will end up, but this is the first one I'm starting to like.



For those of you who aren't serious artists or don't pay attention to such things, this is the 25th version I've tried...sometimes, it takes a while to find something you like!

3D Melpomene exploration

Went into Vue to try and play with some compositions and such for my Melpomene environment.  Clearly, the 3D model of a girl I used in this picture is simply for scale reference, and will not be in the final painting!

Sketches for Melpomene

Working out some potential ideas for my illustration, "Melpomene Tells of the Fall of Troy"









I fell into a bit of a "rendering trap" the longer I worked on this, which is why the later ones have more detail...but none of these are necessarily the finished plan, I'm just seeing where my brain takes me.

Goal is to work everything out over break, and then get a model I know to pose for detail ref.

CTN-Expo Portfolio

Slightly different focus than last week....shrunk down the illustrations to what I think of as my "top 5" keeping in mind that I didn't want all of them to be back-lit silhouettes, so had to make some tough choices.

After that, I've put in 5 of my plate extensions, to show that I can paint in cartoon background styles.  I'm taking my laptop, so I can change this up as I need, but this is how I'm thinking at this point.
