RIPLEY WIPs by pbird12 RIPLEY WIPs by pbird12
WIP1 Not much to see yet, but this is a couple of hours work tonight on my entry for the Talented Mr Ripley contest :)

'Scuse the marks in the sky, I really must clean my scanner :ashamed:

WIP2 Another hour or two and I'm working on the teeny faces of Gwyneth and Jude, they need a lot of work still, but hopefully they'll be alright :) They looks a bit sunkissed at the moment, but the plan is to fade out the background by rolling blue tac across the whole thing once I've drawn it .. might work, might not ... I'll soon find out :la:

WIP3 - So Jude and some girl moonlighting as Gwyneth still need the blue tac treatment, but I got bored over there and made a start on Matt. Lots still to go, but getting there :)

WIP4 - Last one now, shouldn't take too much longer, another few hours.

I'll add more WIPs to this as I go :heart:

This picture looks really complicated, because there are in it, many important elements and many details, which greatly complicate its development. :phew:.......but it looks very well so far!! :D

I wish I had the patience to sit down for a few hours and just draw.

It comes with practice, even 30 mins is a good start :)

I can do it for almost an hour, actually. Almost. Then my leg started hurting and I played Robot Unicorn Attack for 3 hours. It would probably help if my teacher hadn't told me to stand when I draw. It would also help if I didn't have a bum leg.

Stand when you draw .. oh no, I couldn't do that either, I usually lie on my bed or curl up on the sofa :giggle:

He says we're supposed to use easels, but I'm getting an animation degree. I highly doubt I'll be using an easel in my work.

Thanks Deni, I like this ref, there's not many I do like for this movie though :( I wondered if I would make it in time too :nod:

Np, Exactly, this is the only decent looking picture to draw.. But It's kinda difficult.. One bigger and two really small portrait.. really challenging.
Don't worry I'm sure you will make it :D
