Recently I found after completing an image, I would get bogged down with the color as I was doing full color along with tones ect ect. But after my last little stint (see last post) of going to back to coloring in the traditional way using merely colored pencils I found it helped free up my coloring and I have now started using the same free more loose style of coloring on photoshop. Which I am happy to say has really worked well on this image of Jama Masjid Delhi. Can't wait to do another building in this style. More work SOON
This is my continuation of my new style, testing my self to keep the caricature element in the image but stil making sure each of the characters where reconisable. Then making sure the color mixed in well with the shading and cross hatching. And the final outcome I am very happy with.
Using my new Caricaturing style mixed with my commerical illustration cross- hatching and coloring style. I really enjoyed doing this new style, more images in this style coming soon. Also really wanting to re-read Pete Doherty's autobiography agian!
Recently I've really been getting back into the Rolling Stones, from re-listening to all their classics to re-reading Keith Richards Autobiography and now Ronnie Woods so I decided to do a recent picture of them, with Andrew Oldmans old headline he thought up for the Rolling Stones when they first came out.
The reason I colored them each different colors is to show their very different personalities Charlie Watts on the left the chilled out very straight drummer, Keith Richards the king of Rock and Roll, devil like almost immortal Rock and Roll Legend, Mick Jagger the camp front man with his ever changing personality depending who he is around - and finally Ronnie Wood, Keith Richards little brother type of figure, a chilled out verious of Keith hence the orange, quite a few shades of Keiths red.
And finally the green in Keiths ring representing his and Micks ever lasting relationship or as they call it a marriage
