Sketch o’the Week

June 18th, 2008 | Posted in Sketch O'The Week

Since I sort of already did a sketch for this week of Edward Norton for yesterday’s review of “The Incredible Hulk“, I’m going to kill two birds with one stone today by posting the pencil sketches of actor Michael Rooker for those movie set digital paintings I shared earlier this week. I say “kill two birds…” because they will serve not only as this week’s sketch(es) but also demonstrate the earlier stages of those paintings which I was privately asked about by several readers:

And again, here are the paintings done from the the above sketches.

    Your coloring is ridiculously amazing on these. I know it doesn’t mean much coming from some 19 year old who has no experience in this, but keep it up.

  2. What can I say? These are fantastic. I see a lot of Joe Bluhm digitial painting style here. Man… I’ve got to start practicing on my wacom again…

  3. Tom says:

    Thanks, guys. And Jimmy… being compared to the amazing Joe Bluhm is high praise indeed. Thanks!
