I'm dying to see the clubhouse pic hidden behind the other drawings.

Kali Fontecchio said...

What do you mean you wonder what kind of people have red skin?? You forgot...

Kali Fontecchio said...

Hey Ryan- I used Prismacolors too- just not as many- mostly charpaks, trias and Copic sketch markers!

Can't wait to experiment with that glitter crap! WHOO-HOO!

You might have get pure red from a bad sunburn?

Tim said...

I thought the glitter glue was a put-on, then I saw the "multicultural" pencils.
Sheesh.

SibbSabb said...

hahah crayola glitter glue. it just goes to show you, you don't need the props to have talent.

Vince M said...

I'm lovin' this presentation art.

Kerssido said...

Maybe the red is to draw tongues. Or blood. You have to draw your friends, even if they're bleeding to death.

That aside, a lot of people do have reddish or pinkish complexions.

Geneva said...

I have some distant relatives...

When's the pitch? If it hasn't happened yet, best of luck!

I love the coloring and silhouettes. Very pleasant to look at.

Here is someone close to real red skin because they have a skin disease called Erythroderma.

Trevor Thompson said...

Where were the pencils used?

Oliver_A said...

These great drawings combined with skilled and creative colouring beats any digital ink & paint.

Bill Wright said...

Good good stuff, John! Love that duck, he's got Goofy's hat and Mickey Mouse's pants.

Leeann H said...

Red skin = very fair skin + very bad sunburn

My god, multicultural diversity colouring pencils...!? XD Guess I can't use pure purple, green and russet in my portraits anymore...

Please direct us to a stockist!

"These great drawings combined with skilled and creative colouring beats any digital ink & paint."

If the same level of skill was applied using digital ink and paint you'd get an image that looks just as good(or even better on a computer since it wouldn't have to be filtered through a camera or scanner)

HemlockMan said...

Donald Bastard. Arf!

Ahahnah said...

Ryan, do you know of any examples of digital painting (and if possible techniques) that have a rich texture to them and doesn't appear artificial because of (I'm assuming) mathematical precision? I like the fact that digital painting allows for layers and masks and unlimited editing but I've never seen a digital painting that didn't remind me that it was created on a computer. I maybe not looking hard enough.

Ahahnah said...

I've been looking at the composition of the Duck Bastard picture. This is some of the things that I think are occurring in it:

The line of action of the two boys points to Duck Bastard (his is mostly vertical). The white space echos on both sides so it loops. The cigarette smoke splits off the white space into two negative shapes but doesn't completely split the white space in two. The perspective of the ground and the mat points to Duck Bastard. The smoke frames the picture so your eyes don't leak off into space.

Maroon langurs are extremely close to having red fur. A lot of monkeys sport wild hairdos and colors-the gothpunkemo kids on Myspace are put to shame by the natural brilliance of our ancestors.
