JG at work.


Working on some new imagery in artist alley at EternalCon this weekend on Long Island. Showing off a variety of prints, stickers and originals including new hand cut Storm stickers that seem to be enjoyed quite a lot

Hand cut Storm stickers will be on Etsy next week.

Adding some new pieces to the Etsy shop later this month, as well as adjusting prices once everything is set up with a new print shop. 

Have a great holiday weekend everyone.

It’s amazing how alcohol will open people up, lets see how this pans out shall we?

(note: I’m setting this to post at 3pm today, trying to work out these scheduled posts so I can update when I’m traveling for events and comic cons.)
(note 2: I’ll be at Boston comic con this coming weekend, and the following weekend at Mohegan Sun in CT for another comic convention. Stop by the Fanboy Collectibles booth to say hi)

Tiv seems oddly quiet around this beauty,… looks like there’s some history here,… dun dun dun. The plot thickens.
Also, I’ve decided this storyline has a bit more life to it than I had thought originally. More to come soon. (hopefully I can figure out how to properly set up timed posts)

(Note: My technological ineptitude struck again, thought I had set a timed post for this one,… not the case. So while this is a week later than intended, you are also getting a second JDGAF post right after this one, so, doubled up.)

Ready for the Bacchanal

MaskPrimed

In October, I had finished my first mask making project after slowly working on it, a little at a time. Originally it had started as a simple sketch idea, that I picked up materials for and started, then got sidelined with life. As October rolled around, and I had some free time, I dove in and made sure that I devoted enough time to it that I would be able to finish it properly.

Materials/Process:

Started with a plaster mask from an art store. Immediately cut off the little rinky elastic strap, as well as the lower half of the face, as I wanted to be able to talk, eat, and drink with the mask on. Next step was to take wire mesh (wrapped around crumpled newspaper), and start forming the under structure of the horns. wiring the base of them into the pre-existing mask. Once the horn structure was about where I wanted them, flattened sheets of paperclay were drapped over the mesh, and sculpted into rudimentary horns. Ridges and smaller details were added later.

At a certain point I realized I wanted a darker look to it, and started cutting out the eye areas and the lower face using an Xacto, then wound up picking up a second mask to add the layered effect (also cut down). Some of the last lines on the face, and the trio of circles, were added by using Elmer’s glue to draw lines, and then building the layers up as each layer dried.

Then primed, and ready for paint. which was a solid basecoat of black spraypaint, followed by red and white, and some more black layering with sprays, before going in with brush to finish the small details and then sealing with a varnish coat.

Coupled with some makeup effects underneath, and a nice suit and some props, turned out quite well.

Viking: Character Design Challenge 2016

Just finished for a Viking character design contest on Facebook in this group.
(To go directly to the post and give a like/comment/share, go here).
Also, if you aren’t doing so already, be sure to follow my art page on there. JG Art on FB

Fun and relatively quick piece to put together.
The concept on this one was a Viking protector, and his young charge. The girl is the future queen, and as such, is both a child, and still armed and willing to fight.
Micron line work, with acrylic paint on watercolor paper.

Have a few different things in the works at the moment, so will be updating sporadically with new things. Check back soon.
