So way back in March I said I was going to do a Brandon Roy painting. I pretty much finished it up today after I finally recieved/purchased new paint.
I'll go ahead and start out with the sketches.
The old ones were taken from a camera phone so I thought the digitals would be nice for clarity's sake anyways.MOMENT OF TRUTH->
Not satisfied with the color in this photo at all really but it's satisfactory, I think it has a much better emotional impact in person. Brushwork is a lot more visible adds to the intensity.
Me not being 6'2" : ). I'm somewhere between 5'9" and 5'10", I haven't measured for a while. So it's a little bit above my waist in size. Also for the fashionistas out there; no, I don't wear cargo shorts in public, this is one of my painting getups. Also the shirt is a silkscreen print I did a few years back, which is why it looks like there's a Modest Mouse album cover on a sky blue polo tee.
Because looking away from the camera and squinting is cool. PS, I'm near sighted. Although not near sighted enough to paint this painting.
Oh and because I should get into blogging, link to my previous works, the newest one on the page is terrible imo. Probably will rewrite that at some point. Yeah I am aware of the comment spam. The concept I had in mind when writing these entries is the higher and lower level thinking within the male mind and the poignant differences that lie within. If you want to see more of my art, check the flickr page. The sketchbook stuff is all old and put up there for mostly my benefit.
Oh and one more thing, this was going to be a junk drawer :)
