Bat-Candles. 2012. Ink and watercolor on bristol board, 11 × 17″.
This is a recent birthday present for a friend. It didn't require a ton of reference, but I always like getting the hands just right. Who knew all those utility pockets were for candles?
Since I was going to ink this piece myself, I "penciled" it digitally and printed it out in blue-line, inking and coloring overtop. Any stray blue marks were painted over in white Acryla Gouache, my standard for white-out.
And just a friendly reminder: my contest for Wacky Reference Wednesday # 200 is still going strong. It's your first (and possibly only) chance to art direct a fully-painted commission from me. Full details can be found here.
