Playing around with what the character in my pop surrealism assignment will "look like"...actually, probably closer to "feel". I'm using Sam Kieth as inspiration to loosen up and try to hit emotion instead of necessarily accuracy. These were all done VERY quickly, all 12 were finished in less time than it took to play 2 songs on my iPod.
Sat down this afternoon with no plan, no requirements and no ideas, and just threw strokes down until something started to come of it. Took just under 2 hours. Clearly, I could have taken it further, but I'm thinking of this as basically a gesture drawing in paint.
Seth Rutledge is a visual developer and concept artist for the animation and video game industries, a photographer and a coffee snob living in Vancouver, British Columbia. Before he discovered illustration, he received a CSCI/Math degree from UNC-Charlotte, and has lived and worked all over the United States and Canada. He has run marathons, taught English in Japan, been CTO for a pharma marketing company and done fashion photography in NYC. Seth has two albums he wrote and played keyboards on, and he plays the theramin whenever he gets the chance. Seth spends so much time in coffee shops drawing that he is mentioned in online reviews. He would love a career drawing elves and goblins for a living.
