Vulcan Nerve Pinch

So yeah, as I've been saying I really wanted to do a close up of some characters and here ya go. I sketched it, and waited about a week until classes started, then discovered the joy of digital inking, went with that - for the 1st time. was really excited with the results, colored the blues, then the yellows, then the skin tones, then faded them all together so it looked like the light was affecting the local colors. i was pretty pleased and had a lot of fun drawing it, its based off about the only pic that comes up when you google "vulcan nerve pinch" and looks a little too much like Spock but i think the lighting and inking sets this piece well apart from its reference.

Here is a link to the final.

In other news we had our 1st recording session for the radio drama today and it was great, were shooting for next friday to have all the temp lines for episode 2 done. After that we will probably record 2 episodes at a time for final versions.

I've also been sketching a lot, scanned a few - here's a link.

At the last minute I was asked to put together a poster for a theater company in colorado I've done some work for. The play is called Sleuth, here's the poster for the original movie from which the play is based. They wanted me to send them an idea like it.

So I came up with this using random images from google.

But after I got the pictures back that they took of the actors they told me "were thinking of going in a new direction." I was a little peeved but in teh end it turned out for the better, and it was hard to tell that they were two different people in mine anyway.

so here is my rough designs and a link to the final.

Here is a link to the final.

I guess I was channeling the Heist, Kill bill and the Italian Job marketing but it was fairly unconscious, plus once the words were in there it was really about making that work and which designs worked with the text not just as pretty pictures, and as anyone knows playbills have allot of text, you don't just cram everything into illegibly tiny font and stick it into a conveniently sized rectangle at the bottom.
