Craig Ferguson again

Finished! Still have some things to tweak after crit tomorrow... And I'll take a better picture too.
I'm sort of considering sending this to the man himself just for kicks, i mean, what've I got to lose?

Craig Ferguson

For my mum. Well, to be honest, my entire family including myself are avid fans of his twisted comedy.... So yeah, Craig Ferguson, the scottish american host of the Late Late Show... For my caricature class- had to have lots of symbolism... Still more to come.
Making another mess with acrylic, ink, coloured pencil and other messy things.

blue or yellow? think i'm gonna print yellow.

Dead Icarus in progress

Keep on keepin' on... wings....

Tower of Destruction

So fer class we randomly drew a tarot card and had to illustrate it. Me, with impeccable bad luck, drew the Tower, often thought to be the worst card in the deck. It signifies sudden change, destruction of your foundation, and the necessity to rebuild. I drew it upside down, so that's a good thing. But. ... still... very black and red... tumultuous... Lightning, fire... All that fun stuff.
Used pen/ink, acrylic, and messiness.

Icarus 1.... almost there.

still gonna keep tweaking it. ways to go. but. one down. now sleep.

icarus in progress

so i'm doing 3 digital spots illustrating the myth of daedalus and icarus. Spot 1- Icarus gets his wings.
I'm still pretty new to this digital stuff. And although I tried to some degree, my Icarus still looks like my lovely model Stu. haha
This is maybe a fourth of the way done. And two more to do after this by thursday. I am... going to die.

I'm sorry Jim

I'm killing you. In addition to painting you not well, I am drowning you.

Not done yet.
Still gonna keep going.. We had to take a famous painting and then put a famous person into it and lotsa symbolism.
So, I took Millais' "Ophelia" and have Jim Morrison drowning. Since he was found dead in a bathtub. Throw in a peyote blossom, some jack daniels, a lizard, the eiffel tower, screaming butterflies, horse latitudes, girls with beads 'round their necks, and some feathers....

And I still have a lot of work to do. Not sure if i'll finish it in time, especially to the level I want to.
AKA i'm going to be v. unhappy with this no matter what .
