Oh, we’re gettin’ to the good stuff. The nitty gritty, and I think that’s appropriate. After all, life in medieval times was very nitty (lice) and gritty (grime). It works. Just sayin’, but it works. Onto the interesting stuff!
What kinds of things do you enjoy drawing most? (Portraits, cartoons, realistic still life, abstract, etc.)
My general answer I guess is things I can empathize with, humans, animals, monsters, robots, zombies, etc. I like looking at objects and landscapes, I love seeing other people draw them and kinda wish I drew them more but it’s hard to get to know a vase, car or a ray gun.
Do you prefer pen and ink, watercolor, oil, none of the above…
I like them all, never been able to really light on one specific medium guess that’s why I tend to go mixed most of the time. I guess though my least used media are pastel and watercolor. Don’t like how pastel feels in my hand and I can’t make watercolor behave.
How long does it take you to sketch something like the map you did of Wynnewood?
The sketches didn’t take too long but the final took a good part of a week to finish.
I’m inspired by everything, movies, video games, music, books you name it! As you know when I am working on a large image I like to immerse myself film and music appropriate to the subject. For Wynnewood it was “Braveheart”, “Robin Hood”, “Labyrinth” anything with rolling countryside, swords, castles and broad, adventurous music. It’s all about creating a feeling that you can then put in the image.
Ok… tomorrow. Don’t forget. It’d be cruel to put this poor man through the misery of answering all these questions and then no one read them. Just sayin’.
