And the saga continues with this new style of blocking in color I’m trying out. Still digging it, even if I have no idea how I’ll get good blends later 🙂 First round was moving around some of the Russet Brown and Redstone Highlight and also beginning to extend both to new areas.
The next round was mostly extending out the Muddy Soil to fill in the darkest voids and accentuate the great definition in the sculpt. If you compare to the previous shot you can see some of the process in his left armpit.
And his back, not a whole lot here, just filling in some of the shadow volumes and the very start of dark definition on the right.
This is a really fun style, but probably as slow as my normal painting, hah. Unlike blending, there’s no room for mistakes when laying in the colors here (especially the darkest), so I think I traded the back and forth of blending for the precision of whatever I’ll call this technique.
I get an almost Frazetta vibe at times, which is probably a penultimate feeling as a painter! Hope you guys are digging this, let me know what you think.
