this particular piece was intended to accompany an article about obesity in america!
here is the outcome of 2 days of work...
I used graphite to draw it out initially. than traced over my sketchy sketch to create a fine line drawing. Than the drawing was scanned into the computer, where I used digital paint in photo shop to do a color comp or two. Than from that color comp I began painting. I been playing with mixed media lately since I am indecisive and never had the freedom. For this one I used water color, pencil, water color pencil, acylic fw inks, colored pencil, and pastel. YEAH! I know right?
the pastel was kinda a happy accident. I am not very fond of painting backgrounds...and this one I definately made too many streaks...soooo I was going to air brush over it. But the air brush machine was locked up...so plan B...PASTELS! why not? I am far more confident in pastels than anything else. Worked out pretty well I think. We will find out this week during my crit.
one done...3 to go!
