Clue Part 2: Mr. Green

So finally, after what feels like forever, I was able to get back to working on my "Clue" pieces.  I think I must be working in order of favorite characters from the movie, because the next on the list is Mrs. White.

Anyway, I had to take two different attempts at Mr. Green.  The first time I tried using a kelly green strait out of the tube and it looked HORRIBLE.  Mr. Green's pose was really bad and his navy blue suit got lost in the background.  Although this isn't the BEST, it's definitely better than the first. ;)

"Hi George" @ the Dragon Tales Show

 Greetings all!  Once again it's been a while since my last post.  I've been pretty busy with freelance lately, almost too busy to finish my piece for the upcoming Dragon Tales Show over at Monkeyhouse Toys in Silverlake, CA.  But as you can see, I finished it just in time!

This show's painting is pretty simple.  I was in such a hurry to start it I skipped the color comp step in my process again.  Although I'm happy with how it turned out, I know it could have been better if I'd just taken the time to do that step.  Poor little George the Goldfish doesn't quite "pop" as much as I wanted him to.  But that's life!

So, if you're in the area, the Dragon Tales opening is from 6pm to 9pm Saturday, March 17th, 2012.  Yup, on good 'ol Saint Patrick's Day.  So while you're on your way to your favorite hip club or pub for a pint of green ale, consider stopping by Monkeyhouse!
