Little Mermaid Coloring Book– A Work in Progress

This is a page from a Little Mermaid coloring book that I've been working on. I took a page from the book, scanned it, and now I'm coloring it digitally. So I've had to make of the lighting and color scheme of the line art. I'm not done with it yet. I'm sort of making it up as I go along. But I like how it's coming out so far. I'll post it when it's done.

Thanks for looking!

"Take your stinking paws off me you damn dirty ape!"– Dr. Zaius in Brush & Ink

"His Destiny!"
Here's another Brush and Ink picture. Last night I watched the original Planet of the Apes (1968), so I painted this. I should probably also paint a Cornelius and Zira as well. In fact I should paint an entire poster!

For supplies I used; Princeton 50/50 rounds #5, #0/3 rounds, 3/4" wash brushes, Higgins black India ink, and Winsor Newton Chinese white watercolor on a sheet of 136 lb. Canson Canva-Paper.

Thanks for looking!

Brush & Ink Practice

I've never been good working with brush and Ink. I had a go at it this morning, and here is the result. I'm pretty happy with it. But I still need a lot of practice. You'll see more of these from me. I've been spending so much time working digitally. But recently, I've decided that I need more practice in working traditional.

For supplies I used; Princeton 50/50 rounds #5 and #0/3, Higgins black India ink, and a white Prismacolor pencil on a sheet of 136 lb. Canson Canva-Paper. My reference was a sketch of a mustachioed man from Drawing the Head and Hands by Andrew Loomis.

"Ba-Dee-Ba-Dee-Ba-Dee. . . Ba-Don Knotts Folks!" Complete

© 2014 Kyle Wiggins, All rights reserved.

Here is my finished Don Knotts caricature. Well, it's supposed to be Don Knotts– or perhaps it's Steve Buscemi. I could also add a pencil mustache and he'd be John Waters!

He's based on a sketch from a couple of years back. You can see the original on my Caricatures post from March 2012.

Thanks for looking!

A Girl in a Turban, Speed Painting

Sorry it's been a couple of weeks since my last post. I've decided to post something different this week. You're probably sick of all of my Keith Richards posts. Don't worry, you'll be Keef free until he's completely finished. Here is a speed painting of a girl in a turban.  I worked on this for about an hour. I like how it's coming out, so I'm going to tighten it, add some color, and finish it up.

Thanks for looking, and bearing with my rambling. 
Have a great week!
