4th Doctor – face lift

March 27, 2012 Leave a comment

A few touch-ups here and there on the scarf, but this time I’ve mostly focused on the face.  Hair is next. I think I’ll also have to adjust the colours on the scarf. They don’t seem quite right yet.


4th Doctor – Once more, from the top

So, another critique, another repaint. Got another critique, a really harsh one this time, but just what I needed. I finally feel like I’m off on a good direction with this one, rather than just plodding along because it’s all I can do.


Arsenic and Old Lace

My theatre group will be presenting Arsenic and Old Lace this spring, and I’ve been asked to paint a portrait of grandfather Brewster for the set. It needs to be fine by the end of the month, so my Doctor Who project is on the back burner until then.

Here’s what I’ve got so far. It’s based on a work I found on wikipaintings.  Acrylic on masonite, with oil to be added later.

4th Doctor – now with more details

  • After some more advice from the lovely folks at ConceptArt, I’ve made a lot of little changes:
  • enlarged the head a bit
  • reworked the hand
  • added buttons to the vest
  • did some texturing
  • added some interest to the background.

I think I’m in the home stretch now.
