She's a Killer: finale

"Killer Queen"

It's been a while since I've posted anything so I thought that I should at least show the end result of the Killer Queen piece that I started. I'll be posting some more of the posters that I've been working on shortly.

She's a Killer: part 3

Stage 4

My computer was down for a few days, which practically stopped all progress. So I haven't made much progress on this at all. This is the stage of the illustration where I have absolutely no idea what will happen. It could go horribly wrong but that's why we have command Z.

She's a Killer: Part 2

Stage 2 & 3

So this is stage two and three of the Queen poster. Years ago when the digital craze had just begun I found myself to be very frustrated that I couldn't execute paintings in the same fashion as a traditional painting. Part of this was that the technology was not advanced as it is now but the other part (and more importantly) I didn't have the same sensibility as an artist at that time. Now that both I and technology have made great advancements I feel far more comfortable working on pieces like this one.

She's a Killer: Part 1

Anyone that knows me (and I mean really knows me) knows that I'm often inspired by music. I rarely listen to anything contemporary so my playlist usually consists of anything from country to classic rock and even some soul. Whether I'm working on an illustration or a landscape, music usually plays a part in one form or another.

So this is stage one of my Queen poster do over. I painted one several years ago that I was happy with. Then I took a look at some old sketches about a week ago and saw some pretty good sketches and ideas that just fell short during the execution. there's no guarantee that I'll be any more successful than the first attempt but here we go.... to be continued
