Floating


Here is number two in that series of floating stone figures. They were all supposed to be full colour paintings, but I have become obsessed with charcoal thanks to my buddy Craig...

It's a lot bigger (about 21" x 9") than this image shows.

It's alright, I guess not bad for my first attempt at this technique that we learned from Simon Varela (check out his amazing work in the Art of Finding Nemo book) back in the ol' Fox Animation days.

Hey - nice to see your new posts! I'm in awe with this latest piece. Can't belive it's actually 21 x 9 ?! You definitely killed it with the charcoal.

The thumbnails in the previous post already looks very interesting.
