Is that Starchie Spudnoggen on there? Also, glad that Puddy is still alive.
Thanks for posting this, possibly my all-time favorite holiday story!
Hey Steve, stunning draftsmanship and design as usual. I had a question for you regarding acrylics. I'm keen to try doing some character concepts in acrylic like you do so I'm looking at paints the other day and realize that I don't have any clue what paints to buy, brand and palette. Any suggestions? I'm one of those slackers who learned how to paint digitally.
community glee club hehehe
Hethe Srodawa--I use Liquitex Soft Body acrylics. They come in little bottles and are already whipped into a nice consistency when you open them. I tend to start most paintings with Raw Umber and Ultramarine Blue washes. I shift the tones toward one or the other depending on if I'm moving toward a warm or cool painting. The rest of your palette will be a matter of taste, I'll pick yellows and reds by what appeals to me on the shelf. I know I'll be mixing the colors a lot so I'm not as concerned about buying pure cadmium reds and such. When I'm doing a character I keep it loose as long as I can and then build up to more thickness of paint and detail in the area of focus, usually the face or details of a costume. I chop around a character with Titanium White which helps me clean up the silhouette.
I have to say it: I love her eyes! Incredibly warm-cool and scary-friendly.
