Two sketches from yesterday's life model session in the studio. Above a charcoal and conté drawing that took me about an hour to complete. Below, an oil painting that took me about one hour and a half with the model plus other 90 minutes of work once the model left the studio.
These two drawing were accepted into the Spectrum 21 book, The Best in Contemporary Fantastic Art. Many thanks to the judges and Flesk publications. The book will be published this fall and distributed worldwide.
This painting is a personal visualization of the biblical passage in 1 Kings 17:2-6, the prophet Elijah fed by ravens. Below are some of my preliminary sketches and notes. I'm working to improve my digital painting process and experimenting with this cinematic treatment and realistic drawing. Please, let me know your thoughts.
New sketch of the 'Rock Biter', and this time he's really hungry! I must confess that I've been fascinated by this character for a long time. Here I wanted to make him look really immense. I may develop a close-up sketch before proceeding with colors.
