Here it is! I’m really happy with this piece, and it’s now up on eBay as a charity auction, with proceeds going to Robin Williams’ favorite Charity, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Check it out: http://bit.ly/1mlBpi1 #robinwilliams #hook #charity #stjude
The studio did not use this beautiful Drew Struzan poster for Pans Labyrinth because it “looked too much like art.” Head = explode. #drewstruzan
Lookie what I got today! Already read the whole thing. I could stare at (study) this art for hours. #drewstruzan
Added some black colored pencil. #robinwilliams #hook #wip
I’ve been asked what I’m using to record my videos and how I’m setting up my camera to capture the art. For now, I’m just recording video on my iPhone 5s. But I’m looking into options, including possibly a DSLR.
For the setup, I bought this rolling work light at Lowes. It’s just like a flexible lamp you might have on your drafting table, but it’s attached to a stand on wheels. This way, I can easily move it around and I can bump the table without it affecting the picture.
I just removed the round magnifying glass and place my iphone on top, shooting through the hole. My phone has a rubberized case, so it doesn’t slide around. An added benefit is if you use a very low wattage bulb, turning the light on helps provide even lighting and eliminate some shadows.
Eventually, I may cut a round piece of wood to place in the hole, with an opening cut for the iphone’s camera. It’s kinda ghetto right now, but it seems to work :) #artcast #howto #diy
Progress on the Hook piece. A video of this stage will go up soon. #robinwilliams #hook #wip
A bit of a close up. #robinwilliams #hook
Not sure how well this shows up, but here’s a first pass with very light pencils. #robinwilliams #hook
Digital comp for my Robin Williams tribute piece I’m calling “Goodnight Neverland”. It’ll be lightly printed on toned gray paper for rendering. Will also be recording some videos of the process. #robinwilliams #hook #peterpan #neverland
