More He-Man

Back from LA and had a fantastic time. Got to visit/meet so many cool people and see great art. A big thank you to all! Perfect 74 degree sunny weather to boot. What more can you ask for? We packed so much into a short period but instead of feeling worn down, I'm both energized and inspired.

Enough babbling, here are the other two He-Man show pieces.

Trapjaw's Revenge - 11" x 14" cel vinyl acrylic on illustration board.

Naughty Neck - 11" x 14" cel vinyl acrylic on illustration board.

Detail


For the Trapjaw / Sorceress piece I did a little lighting study to get the shadows right... simply a shoe box and a couple pieces of cardboard taped down, then lit from the front.

Lately I've been doing all my color studies digitally. Quick and dirty, like this.
Photoshop

The opening at G1988 did not disappoint. Several hundred people came through the gallery, including media and even a few celebs and from what I could tell, a good time was had by all. Jensen and his team did a terrific job.

A few hastily taken shots.
