Sacrificial Maiden- Work in Progress

You can at least see the direction I'm headed.

Jordan Lysenko- Nightmare... in progress

Hey guys,

So I have a large black and white underdrawing of the piece. I am just about to go in and paint it. I plan to do acrylic washes. The piece is really high key right now but i do want the values to remain fairly close to their relationship with each part. I plan to paint the piece blue with red accents around the chest and small dots floating with the spore-like things.

Obviously not finished yet... "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" cover. I'm planning on using a complementary palette of blue and orange in general. The second darker image is my thumbnail.

Light Change revision

Ok I tried what you suggested and changed some levels on photoshop. I darkened the whales, added more rim light, and lightened the water. Looking better? I think I like it. Sorry I won't be there for the critique wednesday! Please just add comments here.

Surfer Tests

So I went down to California, and while there I attempted the illusive art of surfing... I think for now I am going to stick with making art about surfing..

Here are some tests with the technique Greg showed us, I also did some of the coloring in photoshop to get different over all colors for the skies and what not..

Added Color

Do we like this better? (Brother Newbold! I succeeded in doing the ink color change through the channels like you taught us...but then I didn't know how to save it like that as a jpeg. It looks really cool with greenish ink though)

Sheridan Bronson, Assignment 2-- Family Quote cross stitch

Alrighty. So. Uh, here it is. I cross stitched the real thing, just adjusted the lighting and some minor colors in photoshop. This is a quote from my grandma that I decided I needed to do something with. I have several versions of the frame, as shown below. I'm not sure which is best, though I'm leaning toward the first two.
