Rocky Punch!

This is the last oil study that I did at RIT. Focusing on the torso more than anything else. Mostly left handed I think. I don't really remember. The underlayers were done in acrylic on thin/cheap illustration board. If you carefully lay washes of acrylic down and quickly dry it with a hair dryer, it make a nice spotted texture. Fun to paint on. But don't over do it because then the paper will start coming off.

Let me know what you think!

Batman Study

A trial painting in water-based oils on illustration board. Then some purples were painted digitally along the borders to get more unity.


Thank you, come again!

Society of Illustrators / Lamborghini project

This piece will be presented at the Society of Illustrators show coming up in a couple of weeks (May 18th)! RIT’s seniors DanAlsheimer, Jai Kamat, and Zac Rets also got in to this year’s competition. I made this piece in the fall for my advertising Illustration class with Bill Finewood. The following is the process work. Sketches, final drawing, then scanned in to be painted digitally.

The drawing was done using both left and right hand. The clothing was done with my left and the refined detail work (the hands & face) were done with my right hand.
