Well I went on hiatus as an artist to study machining. I graduated back in Oct 2012 and I am a certified machinist now. Funny thing is I still work as an artist for a machining company. My work is less than 1 mile away from my house so I found that I have more time to make art. Awesome! I don't have to waste time on driving through LA traffic.
Ok, so I have been cranking some art lately and here are some step by step stuffs:
Initial sketch done on my iPad using Sketchbook Pro
Quick greyscale study
changed the background to a lighter scheme to simplify the composition
and here is the finished painting. "Lucy Miner and her Diner Nightmare"
