fuzzy skeletonians and the greater whole

     Just wanted to share what I’ve been doing lately with my fuzzy skellies.  Here’s a quick work in progress .gif I threw together of the fuzzy fella I completed last night.  One of the many I plan to have ready for my OPG in the fall.

     This whole idea was born out of a combination of seeing what ROUBLE RUST often does on her art blog and the desire to share with you what I see when I’m creating these guys (or any of my creations for that matter).  It’s just lines on paper and some watercolor paint, of course.  All these steps are what I see when I look at the finished product.  When my works are freshly completed what you’re seeing above is what often keeps me from seeing the greater whole.  I get the individual parts stuck in my head and it takes time for them to finally combine in my mind, allowing me to finally see what I’ve ultimately created.

     Anyway, just thought this little glimpse into my process and methodology might be interesting.

     Here’s my latest completed work in the new nose bleed style.  This turned out to be an amalgam of past and present components.  I also noticed during the early stages of this drawing (while the bones were just hanging in space, before I added the fuzzy connective tissue) some definite foothead influences.  I’m not surprised.  If you’ve read my Links tab, you know I find his work inspiring.

     Anyway, I also did some experimenting with my new fine tip color markers, which was fun.  There’s nothing like a brand new marker, let alone a whole pack!  Oh well, not much more to say.  Thanks for taking a look.  Enjoy!
