It's been a long time...






...Since I've posted here. I've been busy busy busy on the movie I was working on, and then suddenly the movie was put on hold. So with a few days free, I decided to come back here with a fresh, half-ass Searle rip-off drawing.
The idea was, I was thinking of the inhabitants of a small, medieval village. There were the serfs, and lords and various different members of any small village. I decided to start with a local bishop of the church. I will try to do more in the coming weeks. The thing is, I'm starting a new project this week, so we'll see how it goes. Anyway, it feels good to just get something up here in the meantime, even though I'm not really not very happy with the color. I really need a new Mac. Painter is really starting to run slowly on the old Mac now. Time for a new Mac Pro. (Oh sweet money, come to daddy!) I got frustrated with the slowness of the watercolor brush in Painter, so I started to get sloppy.

Nice!!
I've always loved the effect of the watercolor brush in Painter, but if there is anything that will slow down an older, over taxed computer, it is that brush.
Go for the Macbook!! They just released them with Duo Core processors!!

Oh, let me tell you. This is the year Apple gets my money. I'm going for the 8 core Mac Pro with 4 GB's of RAM. I'm going for the Cintiq too. Also, I've been pricing new LCD's on ebay. So, yeah, this year I'm REALLY upgrading. Or, I could buy a house. We'll see.

Really nice sketch! He looks a bit like Job, cursed by his lord and still truckin'

We use a couple of the 8-core Mac Pros at work, and they're a thing of beauty. Pop one open and they're pure engineering beauty on the inside.

Thanks Jim! I like that assessment of his lot in life. I see those weird church haircuts from back in the days and just shrug my shoulders. So you have the juicy 8 cores at work, huh? Me jealous...

The watercolor look always seems to be the best way to go. Watercolor has that kind of effect on drawings, especially great drawings like yours, Count!

If only I could afford all those high tech whatchmahoozits you guys have. I'll just have to stick with the old fashioned way for a little while longer.
