I thought I would try my hand at some fan art.  As far as fan art goes this is pretty obscure.  These are 3 characters from one of my favorite films Army Of Shadows or L'armee des ombres Dir. by Jean Pierre Melville.  It's about the french resistance during the Nazi occupation of France.  And all three of these people are bad ass let me tell you.

Oh Jane!
This is my Jane Eyre piece.  I kind of hate that I put Mr. Rochester in front because I'm sure he thinks he deserves to be there even though the book is about her, but this is kind of what their relationship is in the book so there you have it.  This was drawn, scanned and colored digitally in Photoshop.  I used a lot of ink and watercolor textures and patterns as well.

A study I did a couple of weeks ago.  Just getting around to posting it now.  Again just tried to keep it loose and overall I like how it came out.

Went to St. Patrick's Cathedral in Midtown yesterday to draw.  This is what I came out with.  I tried not to get too precious with it and move fast.  They are mostly concerned with light and shadow.  A friend of mine loaned me her brush pen for the last two and I think I gotta get me one of those.

Couple of fairly fast tonal studies.  These were both done in the same class last week.  The second one I think I only spent about 40 min on or so.  It's been really nice to paint from life recently, I really feel something loosening up.

Who is it??

It's Kora.

This is the final drawing for a painting I will be starting soon.  The final painting will be in oils.  It's the story of The Emperor and the Nightingale, though I might change the name for mine to The Sultan and the Nightingale.
