Cyclops. 2012. Watercolor with acrylic highlights on paper, 9 × 12″.
I've always been a huge fan of Ray Harryhausen, so I was happy to get this request for the Cyclops from The 7th Voyage of Sinbad. As is often the case with commissions, it's painted in watercolor with white Holbein Acryla Gouache used for highlights. In general, it's faster for me to paint transparently, but nothing beats a quick opaque stroke, even on a mug as lovely as this one.
Thanks to everyone who came out for Dare 2 Draw! We had a fantastic turnout, and it made for a wonderful evening — we even got some drawing done, some pages of which I've posted below. I hope to participate again, so stay tuned.
In case you hadn't been following along, my Lord of the Rings poster, Precious Cargo, sold out in about 3 minutes. Much as I'd like to take full credit for the demand, that seems to be the standard for Mondo posters. That being said, I've since had many requests for copies. While I will eventually have a small number of posters to dispense as I see fit, I haven't decided how to do so just yet. As soon as I do know, I'll post it here.
Have a great weekend!
