T'pring

T'PRING, The devious Vulcun from the original STAR TREK. (This is brand new and is acrylic. I wanted to do a step by step and only partially succeeded because I get so wrapped up in what I'm doing I forget to take a picture of the progress...but I did a bit)....

Re: T'pring

The postings below the finished piece are: the line drawing I did using an overhead projector....the shapes don't have to be accurate that much, the main thing is that the spacial relationships are where they should be. I will fix the shapes as I go.

The second picture is a colored pencil under drawing...here I am carving out the features to make them more readable.

The picture below that is a detail close up of the face....at this stage I began to superimpose acrylics onto the sketch....lightly at first and then a bit thicker as I go.

The final upload is the finished piece...well ALMOST finished. I made a frisket out of paper that covered the character and the planet so I could add the stars by flicking Gesso onto the black areas of "space". Then I plopped my lousy signature on it. Once the image was photographed and uploaded into the computer I began goofing around with the contrast and color increases, digitally, (and adding some more "perfect" stars) until I arrived at something I liked. It is what it is....

Re: T'pring

Lovely and thanks for the WIP.
I really want to know how you did her dress, love the sparkly metallic shine.
Oh and I like the subject too, Spock was always my favorite. I always liked all the subtext of his conflicted nature, even though I was just a little kid when these were first broadcast I watched them all with my folks. Good memories.

The dress is simple....first, it's just a lay down of the light green shades with white highlights.... and the "sparkle" is a slightly stiff brush with the tips dipped in Titanium white acrylic, then tapped upon the dry green paint of the dress. Nothing to it.

Re: T'pring

No Trekkie, here, but that is a great painting. What I want to know, is where you project the image with your overhead projector.

Re: T'pring

Lol, no problem. I have a place on the wall of my workshop that I hang a canvas and if I am working on a piece of paper or art board, I place the board or sheet on my smaller easel and project onto that. For both places I have enough room to move my projector back until I get the right size of projection onto the material. (My workshop is an enclosed balcony on my high rise apartment). As far as my projector height, I simply place it on stool and control the height with books placed beneath it.

No rocket science here.

Here's a picture of the little overhead projector that I have used for decades. A cheap little piece of plastic but it does the job when needed.

I know it's hard to stop and take pictures. Excellent work.

She had this wonderful fawn-like face that lent itself to a lot of exotic roles

What a kwinkydink, that is the same brand I have, still in the box. I guess I will have to get it out and start using it.
