Emperor Turnaround

Once I picked the Emperor style I wanted to go with I did this turnaround with blown up details for hands, feet, and head shape. This is just the linework, I'll probably throw him in Painter shortly.

3.5 hr Plein Air

Went to Playa Del Rey to do a little plein air painting.

Tips would be great! What do you guys usually bring when you go out? Do you bring a medium? Whats a good surface for quick sketches?

Emperor Shape Studies

Here's a little shape study for the emperor I knocked out this morning Before heading out.

These pages were done at the Skirball Cultural Museum, which I didn't realize was very Jewish. Really great stuff! I enjoyed the imagery in their history/artifacts more than the comic exhibit.
