Oaxacan Big Cat, Stage 7 COMPLETE!
^ Color study made in my faux-Moleskine sketchbook, buffed with a cotton ball.
^ Preparation for the final portion of the Big Cat - and fun with a lamp.
^ Regular lighting. Most of the colored areas / background are safe from smudges and particles.
^ Numbers penciled in following color study to help place colors correctly.
^ Priming at the base of the tail.
^ Most of the tail at this point has been primed.
^ Closeup of the tip of the tail.
^ Repeated impressed spot pattern from the legs.
^ Tail finished!
Final stage of the Big Cat - but it needs something...
^ More contrast is the answer, and a repeated spiral motif mimicking that on the shoulder. Spiral gently scraped into bristol with an X-Acto knife to remove top layer.
^ The Oaxacan Big Cat is COMPLETE!
Thank you for following its progress. It means a lot to me!
A scan of the illustration will be up soon.
Next up in the series: Oaxacan Hummingbird.
