Thanks for posting, folks!



Here is what I've been working on the the past few weeks:





For some weird reason I actually like drafting a grid like this to match the 4x4 grid inside of another grid to match the small sketch's grid paper.






Thatsa lota grid squares to draw!! But it makes the transfer a snap.






The roughed in house.






Some reference material I used for outlining the mountains behind the house.






This room caused a lot of hassle. I looked at hundreds of pics to narrow it down to this simple little room.




Taking elements of the real house and making it mine is the real challenge with this design.

Thanks for looking.

This is really going to be special I can already tell. I don't know how you do all those grids, I can't draw a straight line even with a ruler to save my life.

Wow! This thing is a LOTTA work.

Here is the next two weeks of work:







The 'Ol blue chalk lines - how many times have I seen this?






Crappy pic of bushes. Ech.






Now we are getting somewhere. Masking tape on velvet is interesting. It kinda squiggles around while I'm trying to measure it from every angle.






This room is something I've never quite done before: perspective, furniture, walls, halls, I think this takes b**ls!





Two pics of the easiest part, a simple sidewalk.





I started on the concepts for this in November, and here I'm finally starting to see what I've really created!

It does take bells! You must have very large bells like maybe the Liberty Bell. It paid off these pieces of furniture look real. I even love looking at the sidewalk and how it changes as it becomes more distant. You are the master and I love learning from you. After I finish the run of severed heads I'm going to try velvet painting again. You've given me the bug, I have no bells. Wendy

Robb and Ken both posting new art within 24 hours! Is this a sign of the Apocalypse?
Wendy, thank you for pointing out the sidewalk. As a non-painter I don't pick up well on details like that. The mottled look of the sidewalk is amazing enough for me then I see the yellow light source to the back, the cool white light source in the front, and the relative darkness in the middle - cool!

Rob, this is brilliant, man. I cannot wait to see it finished. My background is in architecture, so this is especially exciting for me.

944? My computer says he's had 1002 posts. Every one a quality posting, too.

GROG surprised you painted the furniture before the walls inside the house. A lot of artists usually paint the farthest background elements before the closer foreground elements. Is that because of the characteristics of working on velvet or is that just your way of working?
