Don’t let the media warp your perception of beauty. Beauty is pizza.

Spectrum 4: The Best in Contemporary Fantastic Art
Clara Bow was Hollywood’s first “It Girl”- back then, the word “it” was the substitute word for “sex” since sex was thought to be a dirty word. Clara had “it”, meaning sex appeal, thus the coy term “IT Girl”. The more you know!
Gray Mouser at the Bazaar of the Bizarre.
One of my favourite scenes from Fritz Leiber’s Swords and Deviltry. I wanted to take my time with an image, and the intriguing, claustrophobic bazaar seemed like the ideal challenge.
EDIT: Here’s a bigger version
This time around, I made sure to save some process images.
I started with simple two inch thumbnails until I found a composition I liked. Then I pencilled up the image at 11x17. Once the pencils were scanned, I did a “lighting sketch” to figure out some of the volumes and light sources. From there I did a clean line drawing (my favourite stage). Finally, I just spent some time moving around the image, cleaning up the values and adding little details.
Work in progress from thumbnail to line work. Subject matter inspired by Fritz Leiber’s Swords and Deviltry. Inspired to take my time with it because of the incredible work in the Hobbit art books.
