I never could draw people. Ships, planes, and cars but no peeps.

Looking good.

I always had the most trouble getting hands and fabric correct. They were my nemesis.

I found my charcoals. Just practice drawings from art class but Iím going to frame them up. Iíll take some pics after theyíre hung.

This is the point where paintings die. But Iíll keep messing with it until something happens or I paint over it.

Wow. A fallen ballerina angel with her testicles tucked between her legs in a post apocalyptic landscape. Don't let Mel Gibson see this.

Thatís a gap. Needs orange.

I didnít think of post apocalyptic. Hmm. I just didnít have any ideas yet to fill in the ground. I see also it looks like a mushroom cloud.

It will change a lot as I continue to add layers. This is called an ďunderpaintingĒ the base of paint that almost acts like a primer.

It also allows me to scrape off paint and reveal colors and random patterns later on. I go after it with a hand plane cheese grater thing.

I may have destroyed this one. I have another shot of that model that looks better.

Oof. This one is going down the toilet. Iíve done nothing on the figure. Working on background. What is the meaning of this? None.

No worries Pete. My post was a Scotch fueled attempt at humor and was not intended as a knock of your talent or intent. I must however say that the latest iteration may not be an improvement over the earlier versions.

I liked the idea. Itís looking even crazier now. Iíll have new pics tomorrow. I have an idea that will blow it wide open. Do you see the gap now?

Gap is coming through loud and clear. Looking forward to the next iteration.

Hmmm...Iím doing this in between coats of lacquer on another project.

I need to knock back that tree or tentacles or whatever the hell it is. I wanted a creepy shape that echos where the wings come together.

Iím also noticing the entire think echos the shape of the wings and body. Just painting from the gut.

Looks like a bad tattoo

I was thinking of the man butt comment (she does have a man butt) and it got me thinking that Iíve figured out to get the basic contours first, then get the background going. I let it overlap the outline of the subject, then paint over it again later when itís time to finish the body.

This has turned out to be harder than I thought. When I get to that part of the painting, Iíll be studying that butt very closely. And the spine, ribs, arms, hands, gap, etc. I eyeball the shapes and shadows but it does get distorted.

Iím a friggin amateur at this stuff but learning fast. Need to work on some other stuff though. Door panels for car, Enterprise, new guitar design (Iím working on a custom Tele).

But this feels good. This painting is compositionally weak and cheesy. Even after all these hours working it, there is a good chance it will get painted over or turn into a totally different painting. I think thatís the fun. There is risk every time you touch it. Risk that you will do something that ruins it. Ideas come only from working it. I donít have any ideas going in.

One thing Iíve been doing is putting paint on with my fingers, letting it set a bit then wiping HARD with a cloth. Thatís how that fire texture came about. I also scrape it hard with a metal spatchula and spray it with windex to further smear and blend.

But that butt will be glorious when Iím done. Or there will be no butts at all. Who knows?

OK. Iíve killed it. Iíll be wiping this one and doing a new one with different model and concept. Learned a lot of cool techniques on this one.
