Until I can find a place that does big scans, these camera shots of the final 3'x 6' "Animal Unleashed" painting will have to do. You can read up on the original idea for this Riggs/Muppet mash-up on this earlier post from the Flatcolor show that's up this month.
I don't normally like to post these working sketches because they're not sexy completed looking drawings. The above sketch is just an example of the raw drawing I did in photoshop and transferred to the canvas.
When there's time, I like to do value and color studies before going to the canvas. The lighting in this one is pretty straight forward, nothing fancy, and we already know Animal's palette, so I just kind of figure it out on the canvas as I go, for better or worse.
Only posted this above pic because I like dorking out on pictures of other artists and what was going on in their palette at the time. The "road map" as some artists like to say.
See you in a few...........
