Finished version of my clay model of Ajani. Messy worshop bacckground, myez... I finished it about two weeks ago for a school thingy but didn't have had the time to take it out of the cam XD so, enjoy.
A preliminary sketch of an idea I had for a painting of an African Leopardess, likely to be sold in the Further Confusion Art show. The name was inspired by a show I recently caught on animal planet that chronicled the life of a leopardess trying to raise a family and survive in the Kalahari Desert. I chose the composition simply because it intrigued me, we shall see how well it works in painted format. I was inspired by a pose from a photo I found sometime ago., from where I don't even recall now..and also by trying various poses myself in the mirror. I am still debating how to go about doing the background, but I have a fairly good idea of what I want, nothing complex (shocking!), rather a simple gradiant/wash of softer colors..ie washed out purples/blues/pinks. However, I do welcome other suggestions and ideas!
Usually I am prone to post such sketches in my scraps, for the most part I will continue to do so...and hopefully you folks will be kind enough to drop in on my scraps as well!
Size: a little under 6"x10"
tools: mechanical pencils on smooth vellum. Original rough concept sketched in open canvas 1.1
time taken: roughly a little over an hour
EDIT: thank you for those that commented, the name of the show WAS Kalahari Supercat ! I would have never remembered if not for your comments!
Drew this on the flight back to Calgary today! Magnus and P. Shocker as well as some random headshots. Was super fun to draw, BUT NOT AS FUN AS MY VANCOUVER TRIP thanks again Prat for letting me stay with you
