update on new project

its been a while since I’ve updated on my personal artwork here which is pretty much the real goal of this site and i have not been making my 3 post per week goals but hopefully that will change right now. I’m working on a project right now which is kind of an off shoot of a series I’ve been working on for a while that kind of on the back burner for a bit. ill post more about that one later.

i think some of the issues that hold me back from posting my own work on here is that i rarely feel that something is totally finished even though in actuality it is done. also i don’t really name my projects too well. ill have a tentative general name for projects just to keep them organized in my head but when talking about them, it just sounds stupid. and my last issue and the most important but also the silliest is that i am paranoid and don’t want my ideas and work to be ripped off. i realize this is silly because if you don’t show work for fear of plagiarism then no one will see your work.

so with that said im going to put aside these issues, as i promised myself i would when i made this blog, and start posting pictues of my work in progress, unfinished, stupid names and out there to be plagerised for the sake of making this blog interesting.

what I’m working on now is what I’m calling the ’spaceman’ image. last year i started a project series i was calling ‘gold blood’ but i think I’ve started to settle on the series being called ‘the golden deaths of Mr. blood’, which i realize is also a stupid name but i like it for now. this series has about 7 images that has a blood red background a white foreground object with black line work and gold blood. ill do more details for a later post when I’m actually back on that series fully. one of the images i was working with for this series was a astronaut helmet dripping with gold blood. i didn’t think it worked well with the other images and i shelved the idea for a while. a few months ago i was asked to be in a show for early may and i took this image of the space helmet and started working on it again. now to be honest i am farther along in this process but for now i will post updates on how i began fleshing it out.

here we have the sketches for the helmet. i sketch on a good quality velum with a soft pencil as you will see below.

sketches for the space helmet

if you enlage the picture you may be able to get a sense of what i was going for. and yes i write fuck a lot when i sketch. this next picture is an enlargement of the image i ended up using for the final painting.
