x.35 is the newest entry into my alien menagerie. I did a modest amount of redrafting, but my intent with the extracts is to work pretty directly from my sketchbooks.
acrylic on Fabriano 300 watercolor paper 8" x 10"
The original doodle is from 2003. In 2006 I used the sketch in a quick digital study to help visualize a move forward into paintings of these subjects. This may all serve as some proof that my methods are not all that spontaneous, but in truth it's also a lot of fun to circle back to an old sketch and bring it forward into a more fully realized version.
