The Vinyl Underground #3


Worked on a cover today. Found it a bit tricky as I couldn't find my paints. They're still in a box somewhere after our house move. Found a solitary tube of black watercolour and a rather too large brush and got stuck in anyway....
The cover will be finished digitally, this painted piece composited with some collage and colourized.

This is a really cool start Sean, necessity can definitely be the mother of invention. Sometimes I wish someone would hide all my paints but one...

Beautiful, Sean. I especially like the shading on the bent elbow and other girl's stomach. Shame it's gotta be coloured...

Lee said...

Really nice work Sean!

This reminds me of those stories of artists work taking a leap in quality because of adversity. There was that classic Nexus issue (where he sets up a chain of four murderers to off one another then pops the last one himself)done by Steve Rude in a massively parred down style due to the deadline crunch that is a personal fave and highpoint of the series.

Will,
I was just reading about that issue of Nexus in a copy of the Comics Journal #248 that arrived from ebay today. It has a big interview with the Dude, although I only bought it a for a litle article about Jorge Zaffino.
