Giving Money-A-Tize a Little Attention: Part II

Time to re-engage Money-A-Tize.

Here is Money-A-Tize just before I add some color.


I also used this color palette on another piece I am currently working on called Kyklopes.  They will have divergent color schemes for the remaining layers, but for at least initially, I'm using the same colors.

I have to let things dry for a week or so before I go back in with the remaining line work and colors.

Next time we'll take a look at Dude Looking Up.

The Crown Sign: Part II

Time to get after The Crown Sign.

I still need to add cars, street markings, and lettering.  After all of that new line work is in place, I will finish off the colors for this first layer.  Next time we'll take a look at what's been happening with Money-A-Tize.

The First Layer of Imagery For Kyklopes

Here is Kyklopes as I tackle the early stages of the canvas (laying down base colors, painting the carved wood letter blocks, etc.).

Kyklopes with all of the base colors in place.

The canvas is pretty juicy right now, so I will have time to do some sketches and try to figure out what I want the base layer of imagery/line work to be.

Now that Kyklopes is dry, I start adding the line work.

Including a few of my notes from my Theater Appreciation class I took over 20 years ago...

I still want to add a few more things here...

...and here...

...and here...

...and probably here as well.

More detail shots.

This is what everything looks like when you take a few steps back from the piece.

There is at least one area where I need to paint in the circle so I can paint a bunch of figures over it (it's waaaaaay easier than trying to paint around the figures later...).

I need to add some color.  Here is my color palette for this layer (it will also make an appearance in another piece called  Money-A-Tize).

Let us begin.

Next time we check in with Kyklopes, I will be adding some more line work and finishing the first layer of color(s).
