Wacky Reference Wednesdays, No. 98


The White Queen (Tending the Hellfire). 2009.
Acryla Gouache and gouache on bristol board, 11 x 17".


Chris, my patient patron, I am so, so sorry you had to see this, but it's been burning a hole in my iPhoto for some time now. And to make it up to the rest of you, I've included a detail of her, um... glove. If any of you now have mixed feelings about this piece, just imagine how conflicted I must have felt while painting it.

  2. I'm glad the painting turned out so much better! Your reference photo could double for an inhabitant of middle earth. :p


    On a MOAR awesome note, I used your painting as a reference when getting an Adam Hughes piece this weekend at MegaCon. You made him stop what he was doing and stare for almost a full minute. He even said "WOW".....twice. I was lucky enough to get a piece from him......but yours is still the best in my collection. :D

  3. Hahahahaha. I will never look at you or this piece the same way again.

    And, yeah, Chris has an amazing collection (which can be found on ComicArtFans.com) full of pieces from a wide range of talented artists, but I agree, this is the best.

  5. Sorry to double post, but I had to find this image that poped into my head after seeing your reference pics. Ever see Legend of Drunken Master?

  9. Thanks, everybody.

    Neil, I've never seen Legend of the Drunken Master, but it's on my "list."

    Inappropriate, Maw!

    Chris, you made my day! Adam is one of my all time heroes!

  10. After seeing that, I can't stop wondering what you'd actually look like in thigh-high boots and a corset and I have to say, what my mind's eye is conjuring is not unpleasant at all.

    Am I terribly odd for thinking these things?
