Tim W19: Remembering Maurice

So, I kinda' unintentionally jumped the gun on week 20 (Amalgamation week) with this piece. I got my "Where the Wild Things Are" mixed into my "Into the Wild" and this is what came out. I'd like to tell you that these two stories gelled in my head because I think they both deal with a kind of escapist fantasy that I can relate to, even thought they are very VERY different (intended audience, medium, and outcome of the story to name a few), but as I said, "I'd like to tell you that". In reality it's probably because they both have the word "wild" in the title, I'm pretty simplistic like that (and maybe a bit of the previous reason as well).

My original ink drawing can be found here.

  1. I envision us 6 one day in a large studio, where we're all working on something, and at any given moment we can get up and see what each other is working on. Then you and Craig can train me on your mad Digital coloring skills. This is just friggin fantastic. The background..... The bus... friggin beautiful dude.

    1. Thanks Jim, Rust Belt Studios sounds like an awesome place to me as well.

  2. I think what I really love about this is how much restraint you showed in this. Everything is very muted and real with a beautiful sky anchoring the whole thing. Great work.

  3. This is so spot on, palette, rendering, everything. So much going on in this piece, you are throwing down science Sir! Love it.

  4. Yeah....the palette is what got me.
