i was torn as to whether to get political or not with the piece, so i kept it kinda light- hopefully not too cliche- it's called, "changing of the guards", and is supposed to represent our man obama running those _devils_ out of office. after a few sketches, i composited the characters in photoshop, traced onto canvas, painted it up with gouache, then ink, sealed, and framed it.
it was kinda tough, because the target price we were shooting for was 150$ per piece- _SO_ tough to judge exactly how much art is worth- will letch'all know how it goes.
the show is tomorrow night [august 21st] over in the lower queen anne neighborhood of seattle- will letcha know how it goes!
ps. apologies for the crumby photo- i'll figure it all out some day;)
UPDATE!! although i kinda dug my piece, i don't think it was bold enough to stand out in a wall of so much greatness, so i ducked out a bit early wtih my tail tucked. dangit!

they'll likely look considerably different, when composed in the final pieces, but i thought it might be nice to show what i'm starting with- enjoy!

a bit more paint to fill in [this canvas isn't grabbing on to the translucent washes the way i'd like, so i'm having to reapply colors 2-3+ times, but ah well- serves me right for being so stingy with the gouache;)].
after a bit more paint touch ups and another layer of outline, i think these will just about be done. and just in time! i have a TON of sketches scanned, and ready to start compositing for the next series, which will be loosely based on side scroller platform game action- weeeeeeeee!ps. apologies for the crappy photos- once they're finished, i'll post proper scans.
