Okay, thought I'd include
a partial, Close-up, detail of a work-in-progress that I noodled on a bit last night @ around 3am.
A couple of years ago, this concept came to me while I was doing those live paintings down in Hollywood, and the idea was that the deformed 'creatures' were kinda ppraying to this angel, who would be painted in Ultraviolet light.

Well, i wasn't happy with the attempt, and shelved it, until I could do it right (It really SHOULD feel very Lovecraftian, painted by Pickman) and I have quietly put a stroke here and a stroke there ever since. I even shot pictures of a model posed in the same poses, with striking side lighting to get the feel i wanted. So now it's just a matter of sitting down and doing it.

Damn, I'm the worst blogger on the planet...

...but, ya know, it's a lotta pressure to update stuff all the time, to have something to show to you, my loyal 5 followers (Er, and you, as well, my secret, invisible followers...). but hey, Man, it's all so top scret in this business. I've GOT new stuff, just can't show you all yet..

But, I have found time to add an, albeit bad, photo of something I did recently..

Way back in the design phase of 'the Hills Run Red' I did a drawing of a Voodoo-painted Babyface character, where, instead of the glaring white mask, it would have  the Skull-painted design on it (After all the mud and blood, it kinda ended up looking like that anyway in the movie), So I poured up one of the masks from the molds of the Jim Kagel sculpt and made one...The coffee-can jaw idea just struck me as kinda cool and funny, nothing more dangerous than rusty, torn metal to me...
I'll see if I can dig up the sketch and add it here later.

One of my favorite Werewolves, I've ever done..

...Back when I was little, the ol' timers said that they were some runaway coon hunting dogs that lived out in the Kessler's swamp. Said that the ghosts of some old Indian Medicine men took 'em over, turned em bad, CHANGED 'em somehow, like werewolves.
Always ran in a pack, they said, lost deer dogs, one-eyed, mangy strays, three-legged coyotes that had chewed their way out of a trap, throwaways....

You could hear 'em, out baying in the night sometimes, howlin', huntin' along the river for whatever hunters has lost his way back from his stand....

Farmers always blamed those dawgs when they had chickens disappear, and that swamp was never any good to hunt. Always SMELLED bad, like something rotten...maybe that's why they liked it down here, who knows?
Jimmy Wages claimed to have shot one rummagin' through his trash, says it was carrying off a dead possum, loped off into the night like it wasn't in TOO much of a hurry...

Quick photoshop sketch idea that I had...

Thursday, January 6, 2011

some sketches...

Gee, I feel like everybody's seen all this stuff before...

...Will have to scan in some new-ish stuff for your folks. So much of what I'm workin on is NDA...or whadever it's called, and not to be shown til (at least) after the release of whadever project it is.
And, ya know, you post stuff online, it can go anywhere in a flash and get in the wrong hands before ya know it.
