hey-ran into your blog through eric's blog-great stuff- nice paintings,this one has a very rough feel to it-and the guach paintings are well gone too.best,sunil
This stuff is great Bob, but I've always been a big fan. Keep on postin' man! I love it!
So glad to see that you've got a blog and are sharing your work! It's great to be able to see the drawings for the Out Of Picture paintings. This is a wonderfully expressive Ahab. I like the red hat in the background; I'd be interested in knowing how you chose to put it there. (I haven't read the book so I don't know if it has any importance in the story.)
Hi Jason,I have to say that the dual tone painting that illustrators like Howard Pyle and Dean Cornwell used to do was a big influence. I have always loved that style.I added the red to the guy on the right because I wanted to give it some color, but I felt like i probably had given too much importance to him, so I went in and added hits of red on Ahab's tie and Queequeg's tatoos.If I did this as a more fully realized painting, I probably would have amped up the saturation on Ahab's tie, slighty decreased the saturation on the pirate and added one other strong hit of red on the left side of the painting, so that it the painting is more balanced.
ah. very interesting and informative to hear your thought process for this piece. i wish i took your class when you were teaching at sjsu. thanks for posting all the work. very inspirational!
found my way here from master jie's blog. beautiful work! great blog too! ;)
Thanks Roland,I like your work too. I take it that you worked with Jay? I can't tell you how cool it was sitting next to him on Ice Age 2. Everytime I looked over my cubicle I had a view to a masterpiece being painted.
Hi Bob! Thanks for checking out my blog! I am taking BFA this year, and will be completing the class with the upcoming spring semester. After that.. I gotta look for work!
