Hey Chelsea - good guess - whole thing's being done in PhotoShop with a Wacom tablet (I can't paint traditional for shit). I'm just hoping I can get these bloody things done by the end of Jan, as I've also been given an opportunity to display some stuff at Her Mjesty's Theatre around the same time (handy having a mate with connections).

Cheers,
Simon

Not sure how I missed this thread first time around. The first image is coming along well although it would be interesting to see a more developed head than just a 'rough' lay out - gives a weird surreal quality to it. I guess the main thing would be to play around with general lighting and shadows a bit more. You've gone in and done some fantastic work on the details but you might not be stepping back enough to see how the image is working as a whole.

I know I get stuck on this sometimes. I'm doing wonderful little details and getting carried away then I take a step back and realise the whole thing should be in shadow rendering the details of little relevance - the whole being greater than the sum of the parts.

The 2nd concept sketch is looking cool and if those are lights on his back, I could see you having some fun with light/shadow in this piece. You wouldn't perchance happen to have been influenced by Rinaldo? (Sketching style looks a little similar)

Hi Matt,

Thanks for the comments - not quite sure what I'm going to do with the head at this stage. At one point I was thinking of leaving it sketchy and abstract, but the more I've been working on this piece the more the overall structure has changed. As for lighting, etc - agree with you completely - it's very easy to miss the forest for the trees. I tend to work a little haphazardly when I paint and get distracted by the potential for deatail in a part of the piece. The beauty of forums like this is others can pull you up on it too (never a bad thing). As for the second sketch, yes they will be lights, and I'm certainly going to enjoy playing with reflective light :) RE: Rinaldo - have to be honest and say I've never heard the name before (did a quick google search after I read your post and found an installation artist with that name... could you give me a link if you have one? That site didn't have any sketch work).

Anyway, thanks again for the feedback - most appreciated.

Simon

PS - decided that any further posts from me on this thread shall contain something to look at, so in that spirit, I give you another early prelim (probably for no. 4):
