Gorgon Almost Done

I overdid it.

She's kinda short. That's why her head's so big. Tried to make her a "Gibson Girl" type.
UPDATE: here's the final--made her taller, saturated armor more, messed with face a little more...etc. Thanks for the help--I needed it!

Photoshop Goofing

10-28-update. Bumped this post down under the originals I tampered with Hey. I can't paint. But I love to mess around with photoshop. Then my a.d.d. sets in and I get sick of everything I'm doing. That's why I mess with other peoples art. I get to think in short bursts.
This next one was done how I mess with other peoples art. On the McMini, just using the mouse, making crude masks. But now I feel like I have something I might be interested in re-exploring on the cintiq


Improvement was not the goal. Just me having something to goof with that I hadn't done the hard work of starting from scratch. I dig the Originals. I find nothing adds more class to traditional media than a little lens flare.

Gorgon Teaser

I thought I'd do a line overlay, but I think I'll just leave it more "painterly"...or marker-ly, in this case. Background needs work...and that arm is really wonky. Oops!

ECCC entry

Here's mine.  I just finished.  I think I will let it stew overnight.  Tomorrow is the deadline.  Kinda weird cropping, now that I look at it.  Oh well.

A Comp

Dang, I missed Tuesday.

Here's a comp for an "illustration" (y'know, I don't think I can call it that unless I'm getting paid)  for the Emerald City Comic Con Charity Book. My plan was to colorize that Cramps bride & groom drawing from a few weeks ago, but they nixed that due to copyright. So this is my last minute brainstorm, inspired by the Hammer film, "The GORGON." (A really fun movie--and you should gird yourselves, 'cuz I gave it the "Film Frame Friday" treatment.)

What d'you think?

More Vado Video from San Diego Comic Fest


  And a picture from the Powershot
Beata took this shot of me in Artist Alley.
I'm worried now about my self administered hair cuts.

Breaking: Mass layoffs, possible closures at Zynga

YIKES!
http://www.gamasutra.com/view/news/180005/Breaking_Mass_layoffs_closures_at_Zynga.php

Gamasutra has received first-hand confirmation that Zynga has laid off 100+ people from its Austin development studio, many of whom had been employed for over two years.

We have also heard, though can not confirm, that Zynga's entire Boston studio (Indiana Jones Adventure World) has been shut down, and that there is similar bad news in Chicago.

The announcements came during Apple's press conference this morning.

Zynga Austin's game The Ville and a new IP are both "done," according to an affected employee.

More on this story as it breaks.

Mystery Sketch

Camera has this first photo of Jeff Remmer, Artist Alley, Friday
Then it has this Batman Sketch
Which I barely remember doing. Obviously someone put their sketchbook in front of me and I sketched. Glad I took a photo of it for no other reason than the exhilarating confusion it caused.
