YO, JOE!


Tim commissioned this Scarlett Canson Cutie. He had a specific pose in mind as my starting point and I think it worked out really well. The stars and stripes in the background were done a little different. Instead of filling in areas with color, I used lines of color giving the background a different texture than the foreground. This was done with ink, color pencil, marker, and acrylic paint on an 11" x 17" sheet of Canson Mi-Teintes paper. Thanks Tim!

Tomorrow morning I am Orlando bound. MegaCon 2010 opens it's doors at 1pm and I will be set up and ready to go. If you are attending the show, look for me in artist alley. I am sharing a table with artist Joe Pekar and we are in Section Black, Table 12. I will be posting shots of the sketches I do either from the show or later in the evening. Either way, check here for convention sketches and maybe a few stories.

G.I. Joe side note: I was too old for the smaller Joe figures when they came out. For me, G.I. Joe was just one guy, and he stood quite a bit taller than the later action figures. So my knowledge of JOE lore is pretty limited. Especially if all I have is the recent movie. So when looking up Scarlett to make sure she has two "T"s in her name, I came across her real name: Shana O'Hara. As in Scarlett O'Hara? Oy. :)
