Here are a few in progress shots for the Del Toro painting that's on display this month at Gallery 1988 for the "In the Service of Monsters" group show.
The first shot is an acrylic ink under painting. Shot 2 is an overall wash to cover all the white areas and work out lights and darks. After that, it's time to add color. That's a really short version of what goes into the early stages. Anyway, this painting as well as the whole show is up on G1988's sales page here: http://nineteeneightyeight.com/collections/guillermo-del-toro-in-service-of-monsters/products/augie-pagan-los-monstruos-de-del-toro?variant=6473047041
Also, here's a really great video of the show from opening night, with a very special guest in attendance, The man himself, Mr. Guillermo Del Toro! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=luSXfP_0uhk
