Gundam Commission-Progress

Some progress on this Gundam Commission I am working on. I also wanted to share some of my process on how i complete commissions. 
I always start with gestural studies and doing a refined study of what I will be working on. This really helps me cement what i will be producing especially if it is a new idea. Since i usually work in traditional formats (portraits, figures, landscapes) I wanted to get an idea on how a Gundam is designed. I noticed a lot of straight simplified edges, and smooth lines.
Next I did a full study on what the actual design will be. I then use an old Reniassance method to transfer the drawing to the illustration board. 
 Here is the final piece in progress, i have done the transfer and refined any points of interest, as well as confirmed the composition. Now i will establish the overall design using line quality and i will use an undertone in watercolor before i move to finish the piece in full color.

Stay  tuned for more!

Model in session

 "Model in Session" 18x24 oil on linen.

I wanted to explore the idea of the artist at work in the studio, here we have the model elegantly posed for one artist and in the corner we have another artist hard at work with a hunched back and using a small window of natural light to capture nature at its grace. This was the last oil painting i will complete as i will be in the middle-east working on a new body of work and teaching classical drawing techniques. I will be focusing on doing small watercolor studies and really refining the hell out of my ability to draw with great accuracy.

Study of a fisherman

Small portrait study i did for a larger format painting, i like to resolve any technical issues and concerns by utilizing studies. This gives me a better understanding of the issues ill face when i complete the final piece.
