Here’s one version of part of the artwork for the Mouse-X film poster I’ve been working on. It’s been great working on this project and I’m looking forward to watching this short film when it’s complete later this year. Here’s the link to the website again Mouse-X
I am pretty much finished now. Here’s a close up of the repainted face which I am now happy with. Felicia has been through many faces and hairstyles to get to this point 🙂
Looking at the canvas it’s impossible to tell what has gone on in the previous layers of paint. I had scratched off any build up of dry paint from before so it’s all smooth.
And here’s the full painting.
My Faith/Eliza Dushku painting was still not finished as I travelled down to Inva2ion this weekend in London. I needed to finish it to enter it into the Art competition and to have it on show for people to see during the convention. I took my easel and paints with me and I finished it off during the Friday night and Saturday morning from my hotel room in the Renaissance at Heathrow. I had to use the hairdryer on it to get the paint to dry quicker 😀
Here is the painting. To give it a more personal touch I set the scene in Boston at Fenway Park the home of the Boston Red Sox. The bad guys (zombies/Demons) in the corner are supporters of rival team the New York Yankees. The dog is supposed to be Max Factor (Elizas dog making a guest appearance :D) jumping into the face of unknown danger to protect his owner, while Faith prepares to swipe at her unseen enemy with a baseball bat!
I did finally get to meet Eliza several times over the weekend and got a photo taken 😀
Just noticed Eliza saw my painting & took a picture of it!!! CLICK HERE TO VIEW THE PHOTO
I am working on a new Faith/Eliza Dushku painting which I am trying to get finished in the next few days. I’m going to post the progress of this one as I do it every few hours if possible. This is an oil painting on canvas 70cm x 50cm. Here’s the progress so far.

I’ve done some more work on the face now which is an improvement I think.

The background is starting to take shape now.

When I look at old paintings I have done it can bring back memories of what was happening at the time I was doing them. This Faith painting will always remind me of Ronnie O’Sullivan winning his 4th World Snooker championship. Well done Ronnie!!!

I think this is finished now. This is Miranda on Illium. Miranda is a character from the Mass Effect series of games. The background scene is from a balcony overlooking a city on Illium, a planet that features in Mass Effect 2. Facial reference from images of actress Yvonne Strahovski were used. Yvonne is the actress who played the voice of Miranda and the character is also modelled on her likeness in the games.
I started off with a pencil drawing of the character. Once scanned onto the computer I painted in the rest. When playing Mass Effect 2 there are many WOW moments when you take in the scenery. For me walking around the city on this planet I would spend a lot of time looking over the balconies onto the cityscape below. Bioware did a really good job on the visuals here! The reason I have done this painting is in appreciation of Mass Effect, the artists behind it and the beautiful Yvonne Strahovski. I couldn’t really go wrong making this one look pretty 😛
I’m creating a larger wallpaper version for people to download to use as their desktop background this weekend 😀
