India Process and other nonsense
It's interesting to see how a picture evolves from a mere idea and thumbnail into a final painting. Here is a small sample of the drawings and comps that went into the India piece. While it might seem a bit redundant to keep drawing and redrawing, I really think that you learn from each mark you make.
Below are some quick sketches from last nights news conference. I quite like the balance of line and value.
Last night I received possibly the best Valentine's Day gift ever: A Casio CA53W Sport Calculator watch. Not only is it water resistant, but it has a dual time display, an auto-calendar pre-programmed to the year 2079, a fully functioning calculator for advanced calculus operations, a stopwatch that can measure normal time, net time, lap time and 1st-2nd place times, and both a daily alarm mode and hourly time signals... How did I get so lucky? Thanks Kait.
