Sketch Color Testing

I played around with some colors today - ( And tested out the new pen tablet I just got. coloring goes WAY faster when you aren’t working with a brick tied to a string!) I Scanned this napkin drawing I did awhile ago at a sushi place. (More stacked heads!)

I need to work out what I want to do for backgrounds. I never draw backgrounds, only characters, but since I want to get into painting again I need to figure out some good elements and overall style for that. I’ve been working on some clouds, ornate star things and bubbles.

Stay tuned for more tests before I get down to the canvas!

Sketching for paintings

Working on some ideas for new paintings. I’ve been drawing lots of these stacked characters nowadays. I like the idea of layering them almost like dessert toppings. It’s hard to tell but this one is pretty big (18×24). First time I really sketched this big, normally I project smaller drawings on to canvas with my opaque projector. I think for this show I’ll be working acrylic on paper. Stay tuned for more pics of what I come up with.
