Bond and Prison Break

I haven't posted anything for about a week, so I thought I would show you what I was up to. I have been getting another couple of celebrities drawn for Kadinsky Art, a Celebrity Art publisher.

Here we have Daniel Craig as James Bond and below Wentworth Miller as Michael Scofield from Prison Break.

Back to the animals now...

Finally finished

This one has taken slightly longer than I had planned, but is finally finished. I haven't come up with a name for this as yet, but i'm sure it will come to me soon.

This took approximately 50 hours in total to complete and measures approx 40x20cm.

Barn almost finished

So we are almost over to the right hand side and, with that, the completion of the barn.

I don't know why I haven't already but the chicken in the window really need completing, so i'll get to that tomorrow...

Wood, wood, and more wood

Moving quite slowly with this one, and working from the middle outward for some reason! I'm going to get all of the background wood in place before starting on the foreground animals, that way I can ensure I set their tone at the right level to stand out from all of this mid-tone.

Back to the farm work

After a bit of a break to expand the Puppy Collection (which I will probably return to after this piece), I am back to the farm work. This time it is to revisit the sheep and chickens in a barn setting.
I have been playing around with this barn setting for quite some time now, trying to get the composition to my liking. There have been cows, horses and even dogs playing in front of the barn, but a few shots of some lambs at a recent agricultural show (the one where my marquee blew to bits so I was unable to trade) finally gave me to composition I was after.
I am about 4 hours into it so far and just working on blocking in the darkest areas of the drawing. From here I will begin work on all of that wood.

Black Labrador Puppy

Here is my latest addition to the Puppy Collection, a Black Labrador to go with the Chocolate Lab.

I find that, no matter how many breeds of puppy I draw, I always get asked for ones that I do not have. Because of this, I have made it my mission to get as many breeds added to my collection as possible. Of course, I could draw a hundred breeds and someone will always want a breed that I don't have!

Maybe, to get a Yellow Labrador added to my collection, I should just lighten this one in Photoshop - what do you think!?! No? Ok, onto the next...
