the hardest problem about showing behind the scene stuff is you can never predict what the reader wants to learn from my own art process. Actually I do hope to scroll down and read some of my past post explaining some of my other techniques, this blog is like 3 years old of stuff I never update.
Oh well, on this recent piece took me about 3 years conceiving it, inspired by Adam Hughes, Dean Yeagle and Aristocats. It's a bit showing how glamorous Catwoman's life style is and how she loves her cats.
I'm pretty sure I posted this last year, but the original designs of the cats come from here. I love their weight, their movement and their excitement.
this is my third time I've started drawing this scene. Sadly the head is all off so instead of redrawing it a fourth time I went in resized a small sketch and used that as the new head. Now I took like a good 3 weeks thinking it over, I really wasn't sure if it was right idea. As much a painting is really about painting over previous lines I really wanted a nice clean original line work. In a way my own insecurities get the better of me to actually improve myself.
the biggest reason why I pushed this art process was because of support from my friends. I have so much respect and admiration for artists who can do this all easily in one go, so any single little fault I have I will stop and just prevent myself from progressing my art.
At this point it was 3 in the morning, I had to stop and take a break. The texture was originally an idea that I came from coloring a pin up from Justin Coffee. Still all tempt and I had it there so I can go to sleep and think it over.
well this puts an end to a 3 year of insecurities, doubting myself and ideas that were just a small little joke in my head. Here's some nice close ups you can't notice in the resized ones
