There were a lot of good suggestions for this week's Friday request, but I chose Starbuck and Boomer (from Battlestar Galactica) . I usually don't do that type of thing - a drawing based on characters from a TV show), butI figured I might as well try expanding my horizons a little, eh?
I think it came out decently - though I wish I'd gotten a better likeness on Starbuck, but I think Boomer came out okay though. What's funny is I struggled longer on Boomer and it wasn't until I was almost done that I realized Starbuck was only meh. Unfortunately I had too much else to do to keep messing with it, but maybe sometime in the future I will revisit it.
Next week I'll also try and remember to post here as well for suggestions so all of you who don't tweet or use FB can join in.
Anyway, I started a new gig last Monday. I'm directing again at FilmRoman (it's now called now Starz/ FilmRoman, I think, or maybe it's FilmRoman/Starz) on a Marvel project - The Avengers. I haven't worked in-house for almost 2 years so it's taking a little adjusting and I'm also working for the first time on a Cintiq. I've worked on a Wacom pad for years and have actually gotten to the point where I can draw directly on it (to some dgree), but this is the first time I've actually used a Cintiq. It took me about half a day to get used to it and now I can honestly say I've grown to love it and I'm looking forward to the day when I can save a little extra scratch so I can get one for home.
