prismacolor on kraft paper

Cinderella for Drawergeeks. This had to be quick if it was to be at all. Several irons in the fire at once and juggling is not my best ability. Originally it had just the girl, but felt it was just not finished. Don't know if it is now or not. But at least the attempt was made. Off to work.

when nothing else works... go back and review the old sketch books. I have been adapting sketches from a jazz show last year into new drawings. Quite fun.

I just felt I needed to paint the character doing what he was created to do ... kill things in a not very pretty manner. He may be a glorified superhero, he may be fun to draw, but he is still a surgically engineered butcher. The man has knives that shoot out of his hands that cut through anything... what was the government going to use him for? Peeling potatoes REALLY fast?... no.

my original plan was to back out of this. just to not submit. Last time the comic book theme was presented, I fell flat on my face... with 2 submissions yet. Too much anxiety... too much pressure... too much spicy food too late at night. So, I was going to let the much more experienced bunch take a stab (heh) at Wolverine. But insomnia and a clean piece of scratch board added up to a sketch that may show promise. Dunno. We shall see. I will do some tuning and see what happens. A very wise person stated that people take 20 minutes or so to create a drawing and then spend hours or days slowly wrecking what they could have just left alone.

the start of a rather large horizontal graphite rendering of a clover patch. Final drawing will be about 14" x 26". This is the beginning of an involved process.

not feeling really swell. worked out of the sketchbook to see what would come up and to keep focused on other things.
