Blart #10: Wolverine

More specifically "Wolverine Slashing Prices With His Adamantium Claws,"  which is a quote from Spaced.  Simon Pegg's character Tim is working on a poster for the comic shop in which he works, but you never see the poster, hence this Blart was born.  And no, you're not missing any, I skipped from 7 to 10 - I may go back and do the two I missed at some point, but I won't be spending much time on them...  So, on to the price slash!

Less Haste, More Speedpainting

Still a lot of catching up to do, still too slow in updating.  Part of the issue is that posts take a lot longer than most of the things I've been doing, so here's a catchup post with a bunch of speed paints.  I know it appears that I've been slicking on my traditional media stuff, and I have, but I have been doing a bit here and there I just haven't got around to posting any of it due to being to lazy to scan it.  I got it scanned today, but with Thanksgiving rapidly approaching I don't know when I'll get a chance to format it into presentable images, so that's to come at some point.  Anyway, on with the speed paints, after these short messages...

A Musing 3: Can uTell What it is Yet?

My blog post titles should be reason enough to visit this fine establishment.  Look at it, it's genius!  Okay, maybe not, but you know we're talking about uDraw again from reading it right? Right?  Job done then.

When last we met I was showing off my uDraw pieces for (more to come BTW, just not for the same reason), and saying I'd reveal my favourite feature of the software while giving a more in depth look at the creation of the portrait.  Well, I'm not - at least not the way I intended because it was booooring.  No, I came to a realisation while capturing images for this post, so it's going to be cut down, but hopefully more interesting.

uDraw, I Draw, We All Draw

So I've been busy of late, as I may have mentioned previously. All sorts of interesting things going on in the world of me, and since many of these things are art related, and stall me from posting here, it means I have some catching up to do. First of the many posts I kinda sorta need to do is one of two involving work.
I don't speak of work on here much, mostly because the work I do is pretty much unrelated to the sort of art the blog is about to any real extent, but I am an artist (according to my job description) - I just make things in 3D rather than painting them in 2. Oh, heck with it, you may as well know...

The Captain and Me

Crikey, it's been a while. I meant to post this the day after the Monster, but then I decided I'd do a companion piece, but one thing led to another and I got fantastically busy in a hurry and didn't have time. The spark has died on the companion now, but maybe it'll come back soon - for now you get just the solo piece.
Once again this is entirely my Brother's fault (this piece, not the death of sparks). Why? Because it's based on Captain America and, editing willing, my Brother will be appearing in the movie next year. His on-set report to me over the phone inspired the following... In a manner of speaking.
