Final Paintings

are now complete for the end of my 1st semester of my 2nd year in animation.
Not exactly 100% content with my "realistic" version but time isn't on my side thus it'll do. As for my inked / stylized version i'm 100% content with it and only takes all of 10 minutes to do! well the painting portion of it at least. Inking it took much longer then that and was rather annoying seeing how I had to apply the ink onto rough water color paper. But even though painting it was quick and painless I enjoyed approaching it in this manner. Even though we're only supposed to do 2 versions of this painting, I'm going to attempt a 3rd over the holidays with a more Samurai Jack type approach seeing how I love the art work for the backgrounds in that show.

More Fortress Madness

These are a bunch of color studies that I've been working on today which will then be shown to my painting teacher tomorrow. Once I've seen him I will also do some touch ups on one of the versions I've already completed with the air brush aaaand I will then proceed to start / finish the following painting as well.
