You didn't think I stopped drawing monsters did you!?!
Yeah, that's still going on. I did some research last night on how to get those highlights to pop, back to the airbrush this weekend...
But Templar is back in production as well...still need to do a value pass, and a detail pass before it goes to color.

Here's the colors for the stormtrooper...you can see I worked it with the white pencil to pull out the highlights to no avail....quite a mystery for me. Would a white grease pencil work? Sadly I don't have one handy...I'll put it aside until I get time to get out and pick one up.

I played air brush just bit this weekend. And I was a little disappointed that it didn't solve my highlight/white pencil problems. Not really sure what to do about it....I want a very crisp highlight with pencil, and not soft with the airbrush. I guess I'll just have to continue testing it out!
Here's the Vader, and one with a bit of digital enhancement and cleanup. He was my first doom-to-fail, as I didn't spend too much time on the drawing.

Happy Anniversary to me! And my up-to-seven strong readership after a year!
Yeah....anyways...keeps me motivated to get better.
So here's the final Chewbacca image, in what is now an annual event. It's come a long way from the first one, but he's still not right...that mouth/chin is tough! I also screwed up the brow with the highlights, it's shows too much of a flow instead of a bend at the top of the eyeline. There's always next year!
Here's the first annual drawing, in case you forgot.

Well, tomorrow is the one year anniversary of the Bad Flip Blog, and since the first ever post was a Chewbacca portrait, I decided to make that the yearly project. Because he is hard for me to draw.
So here's the grays, I'll post the final tomorrow...

Here's the 'final.'
I think there's more work to be done with the highlights. I ordered proper airbrush stuff over the weekend, I've kind of reached my limit with the copic markers. It's tough to draw over them, and the limited opacity; I realize this isn't what they're designed for, so I'm upgrading to push myself more.

Still working on the Grand Prix painting, but I've had a couple of long days, so not much progress has been made, not enough for a post at least.
Working all day on the computer painting out finals gets laborious, so every once in a while I take a break and just doodle some stuff like this; a compilation of random stuff cobbled together from various scraps littering the office.
