Visual experiments and naked women…. (NSFW)

My intended work has been getting progressively larger and more involved, so I’ve been toying around with some various ideas on ways to work larger, while maintaining a cost effectiveness. Frankly, my personal work doesn’t bring in too much bacon, but I’m going to keep making it til I die, and as it evolves, I know it will start paying off. So it’s a matter of keeping my costs manageable while I grow and take on bigger projects.
Anyway, one of the concepts I started playing around with is the idea of panels. I’ve done it for smaller works, and I’m sure I can get it to function well for larger pieces as well. But then I started thinking of varying ways to assemble pieces. I could do basic shapes, or I could consider doing odd shapes that make up other images….. ohhh, that could get fun. So here is a piece I started, basically with the concept of having it spread out over a couple panels, and then working with it from there. Essentially it’s practice for larger installation work, while also drawing something I enjoy and would like to share with others.
She’s still in the works, but you get the basic idea from these shots.

Production shot from early stages of the head area. I was greatly enjoying the requests from people to see if she was an elf, vampire, etc.

Teaser two. Got a few more of the same responses, and a couple requests for dates…. doh.

Teaser 3, which you’ll soon realize is some linework close up of hair/dreads/roots,…. whatever.

Wha0Bam! As you can tell, she’s a little more involved than the teasers really let on.  She’s been a lot of fun to draw, and work on. Still have about 15-20% to go (drawing and cutting) before I’ll get a highres scan of her to show off, but you get the visuals so far.
Check back next week for the finished version of her.

    Wow, she’s really good. A tad long in the forearm for me, but still looking good!
